White Boy Rick (2018, dir. Yann Demange)

The true story of Rick Wershe, drug dealer and teen FBI informant. Intriguing spin on the rise-and-fall story, focusing on the latter; good performances, and director Demange again shows he can handle drama, action, genre, character actors and period detail.

Hostiles (2017, dir. Scott Cooper)

An embittered US Army veteran is given the task of repatriating a dying Cheyenne chief. Handsome, sombre and occasionally po-faced Western with a straightforward message. Good performances, though not quite the epic it wants to be.
