Proud Mary (2018, dir. Babak Najafi)

A crime syndicate-affiliated Boston hitwoman starts a gang war after protecting a child. A good central performance and some OK action anchor this very straightforward thriller in need of a stronger script less eager to make its protagonist sympathetic.

1922 (2017, dir. Zak Hilditch)

A farmer is driven mad by a selfish decision. Period horror-drama based on a Stephen King novella. Anchored by a great performance from Thomas Jane and a feeling of grim inevitability. No surprises, but a well-mounted production.
