Nobody (2021, dir. Ilya Naishuller)

A browbeaten family man with a past comes up against Russian mobsters. Okay action comedy with slapstick brutality galore. A fine cast, some invention in the detail, and a couple of neat directorial moments help, though there’s a heavy-handed approach to pop scoring and to the fantasy world of the movie.

Here’s the trailer.

I Am Not A Serial Killer (2016, dir. Billy O’Brien)

An isolated teen is caught in a series of murders in a small town. Initially slow-moving, this dark horror piece gathers momentum as it proceeds, ending in places quite distant from its beginning. Christopher Lloyd puts in a lovely supporting performance.
