Triple 9 (2016)

imageJohn Hillcoat directs Casey Affleck, Clifton Collins Jnr and Kate Winslet in a frenetic cops and robbers thriller.

You’ll either leave Triple 9 feeling cheated by the simplicity of the characters, the familiarity of the plot threads weaved together and the murkiness of the storytelling… Or deeply involved by all the heft the stellar cast brings, the red raw and delirious level of detail embroidered into Hillcoat’s vision, and impact of the intense set pieces. It is an ensemble where few survive, the least known stands out, and that will be unsatisfying to many… but for me it was a much needed taste of big screen, adult crime storytelling. A taste I crave.
