    Cold in July (2014)

    An unpretentious neo-noir story following a meek family man who inadvertantly shoots a burglar dead, only to find his family targeted by the man's vengeful father, this feels a bit like an 80s fistbump between Michael Mann and Alfred Hitchcock. Its twisty narrative eschews some potentially interesting avenues in favour of a more conventional conclusion and, in doing so, gravitates away from some interesting points about masculine identity that get thrown up along the way, but it's a tense, very solid and impeccably acted thriller, much enlivened by a pulsing, John Carpenter-style synth soundtrack.
