Ben Wheatley at IFFR
Raw realism and black humour are the ingredients of this British crime film about the Hill father and son, who go looking for the person responsible for their arrest after they are released from jail. Filled with cellophane-wrapped bodies.
Sombre, nervous and easily hurt: Jay is unemployed and his beautiful wife gets on his nerves. Time to do another job? The skilfully improvised social-realist drama then flips into disturbingly realistic horror. This year’s strangest scary film.
Caravan trip through the English countryside turns out very different from expectations. No tourist attractions such as the Pencil Museum for the tender couple Tina and Chris, but a great murder vacation. Hilarious black comedy by the very talented Brit Ben Wheatley.
Stylised, virtuoso drama by Ben Wheatley (Sightseers). A doctor moves into a luxury apartment building, an autonomous community where everyone knows their proper place. Then a class rebellion develops and the residents unite in murderous gangs - with surrealist, hysterical and post-apocalyptic consequences.
Retro gangsters in glitter jackets and bell-bottoms try to stay alive during an arms deal that gets out of hand in a deserted factory. Ben Wheatley’s cool cast finds itself in a classic shoot-out, with well-aimed bullets and one-liners. Who will survive the battle in this bold action film?
