Topping my personal list of the best films of 2011 is Ben Wheatley’s instant classic Kill List (review), which premiered at SXSW before making its way to the Midnight audience at the TIFF. The slow-burn chiller is now available on VOD everywhere, with a limited theatrical run planned for Los Angeles and New York on February 3rd. You’d be doing yourself a major disservice by missing it.
“Eight months after a botched job in Kiev, Jay (Neil Maskell) is an out-of-work hit man with no job, money, health insurance and a wife constantly on his case. But when his business partner Gal (Michael Smiley) comes over for dinner and pressures Jay into taking a new assignment, Jay quickly finds himself back in the game with the promise of a big payoff after three assassinations. Although the hits start off without incident, soon things begin to unravel and Jay’s paranoia reveals itself as he is plunged into the heart of darkness.”
