A woman and daughter go missing in an ER. Crisp, clean paranoid conspiracy thriller engaging with the director’s recurring themes of guilt and paranoia. The kind of professional, lean, efficient movie they don’t make too many of any more. Recommended.

The Negotiator [AKA Beirut] (2018, dir. Brad Anderson)
An ex-diplomat is recalled to Beirut to negotiate a hostage release. Generally smart thriller which downplays the geopolitics of the region and wisely focuses on multiple warring groups after the same prize. Solid direction and unshowy playing helps.
