Kill List

de Ben Wheatley



Following an eventful job in Kiev that left him with violent psychological after-effects, Jay, a soldier reconverted into a hired assassin, has been out of work for eight months. His wife and son have had to put up with his anxiety until Gal, a friend, proposes a little job. The target list isn’t very long, but the job winds up dragging Jay towards the heart of darkness. With a nervous, shoulder-held camera and realistic lighting, Kill List starts off like the classic British family drama to wind up, in just under an hour and a half, plunging us into the domains of violence and insanity.


Ben Wheatley

His debut, Down Terrace (2009), established him as one of the great talents in British film, a status he cemented with Kill List (2011) and Sightseers (2012), all of them screened in Sitges along with A Field in England (2013) and High-Rise (2015).
