Old (2021, dir. M Night Shyamalan)

A remote beach has the power to age humans dramatically: holidaying strangers race against time to escape. Good-looking if at-times awkward Twilight Zone-ish yarn with horror elements. Not sure the movie plays wholly fair with its resolution, but there’s an OK one-time watch here.

Here’s the trailer.

Beckett (2021, dir. Ferdinando Cito Filomarino)

An American tourist in Greece goes on the run after he becomes embroiled in a conspiracy. Somewhat baggy old-school (think Frantic) Euro-thriller mixing up kidnapping, corrupt cops, and political protests. The location work is great, but there’s a lack of urgency and – Boyd Holbrook aside – no sense that this is a genre movie.

Here’s the trailer.
