Kill List

Kill List

A film by Ben Wheatley
Starring Neil Maskell

The second feature from British director Ben Wheatley (Down Terrace), Kill List (which premiered at the 2011 SxSW Film Festival) features incredibly natural rich performances, jet black humor and nail-biting suspense that work to keep the audience always off-guard. Moving from kitchen-sink drama to character study to crime thriller, Kill List ends up at something more fundamentally profound and wonderfully disturbing.

Eight months after a botched job in Kiev, Jay (Neil Maskell) is an out-of-work hitman 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.

Nerve shredding, awesome. Diabolical as it is brilliant.PAPER
