OK. I'm on board again in believing Ben Wheatley as the 'real deal'. Kill List starts out as a crime drama but ends as a total wtf. Wheatley's measured, careful composition, editing and soundtrack creates an ominous place filled with mystery and intrigue. It's violent, eerie and original, if not in its content, in execution. The less you know the better the experience will be. It's one of those dark films which its images will linger over your head for days. Wheatley's in the same league as Refn and Park Chan-wook as the reigning visual stylist of our day. I can't wait to see A Field in England when it comes out.
