Feature Film Thriller
Taut thriller, reminiscent of Reservoir Dogs and Free Fire, keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout.
Ex-cop Gannon has joined a local militia, who become the prime suspects of an attempted murder of a policeman. All members are called in and it’s Gannon’s task to interrogate them. Before long, secret after secret is revealed, including Gannon’s own.
With its warehouse setting, razor sharp dialogues and hard-nosed killers, the comparison with Reservoir Dogs and Free Fire is inevitable. All characters have a deep sense of paranoia and every scene is loaded with shimmering violence that can erupt at any time. These are characters of the Trump era, who have lost all belief in democracy and the government. This is not a view that is advocated by the film – it merely ups the stakes as these men have lost every hope or belief. The shifts of perspective throughout the film make it even harder to find out the truth or to figure out whom to root for.
With the short film:
A man is looking for an addition to his collection: a woman who lives in the woods. But she has other plans. Graphically original film stands out through its exuberant use of colours and a very clever sound design.
