I.D.I.D. (1996)
Dir. Philip Davis
Feat. Reece Dinsdale, Saskia Reeves
Criminally overshadowed by the likes of TRAINSPOTTING and SMALL FACES, this is a white-knuckle cautionary tale about football hooliganism and the hazy thin blue line that separates undercover coppers from their 'targets'. Reece Dinsdale gives it 'eck as the rookie who yields to a seductive camaraderie of…
Our Kind of TraitorOur Kind of Traitor (2016)
Dir. Susanna White
Feat. Ewan McGregor, Naomie Harris, Stellan Skarsgard
Solid adaptation of the John Le Carre novel about a couple who finds themselves lured into a Russian oligarch's plans to defect, and are soon positioned between the Russian Mafia and the British Secret Service, neither of whom they can trust.
Shallows, TheShallows, The (2016)
Dir. Jaume Collet-Serra
Feat. Blake Lively
Nail-biting but certainly shallow thriller with Blake Lively as a lone surfer being stalked by a great white shark off the Mexican coast. Technically and visually swish but mainly aimed at an audience who don't remember the copied-but-still-yet-to-be-beaten JAWS.
Green RoomGreen Room (2015)
Dir. Jeremy Saulnier
Feat. Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat
Another inventive, claustrophobic backwoods thriller from the director of BLUE RUIN, this time focused on a touring punk band who must fight for their lives when they become trapped at a remote venue by a gang of maniacal skinheads.

Dir. Karyn Kusama
Feat. Logan Marshall-Green, Tammy Blanchard, Emayatzy Corinealdi
A potently ambiguous chiller in which a man attending an LA dinner party at his former home comes to believe his ex-wife and her new husband have sinister intentions for their guests. The bearded Logan Marshall-Green has a strong, inscrutable presence, leading an excellent ensemble cast of…
SicarioSicario (2015)
Dir. Denis Villeneuve
Feat. Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro
Nerve-jangling thriller follows an idealistic FBI agent drawn into the escalating war against drugs at the border area between the U.S. and Mexico.
SleuthSleuth (1972)
Dir. Joseph L. Mankiewicz
Feat. Michael Caine, Laurence Olivier
A supremely cunning, self-reflexive mystery satire based on the hit West End play, with Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine as affable intellectual dandies of different classes who enter into a battle of elaborate gamesmanship after Olivier discovers Caine's affair with his wife.
