Brawl in Cell Block 99 (2017, dir. S. Craig Zahler)

A mechanic turned drug mule has to battle the prison system to save his pregnant wife from the dealers he owes. Slow-paced but inexorable, this crime drama/horror mash-up isn’t for everyone, but is both brilliant and brutal if you can go with it.

I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore (2017, dir. Macon Blair)

A timid nursing assistant teams up with a neighbour to retrieve stolen goods; matters soon get out of control. Splendid black-comedy thriller with whiffs of early Coens and some genuine surprises as matters ratchet up. Recommended.

Also, here’s xussia’s opinion.

Wheelman (2017, dir. Jeremy Rush)

A getaway driver finds himself in the middle of a double-cross. A lean, effective thriller that’s equal parts The Driver and Locke. Frank Grillo makes for a pleasingly ordinary protagonist. Shades of John Carpenter and Walter Hill throughout. Recommended.
