Undertow

You can practically feel the humidity coming off the screen in David Gordon Green's atmospheric, Southern Gothic-flavoured thriller, evoking 'The Night of the Hunter' with its meditative pace and gritty naturalism. Punctuated by graphic bursts of disturbing violence this dreamlike and unsettling story of two brothers (Jamie Bell - 'Billy Elliot' - and Devon Alan) fleeing a murderous uncle is the assured work of a gifted, idiosyncratic filmmaker unafraid to take risks.
