Straightheads (Closure)

I'm not even sure this one saw theatrical release here in North America and I find that odd as it stars Gillian Anderson in a decidedly NON-Scully role. This Dan Reed directed film clocks in at 80 minutes and considering he works mainly for British television this is a good thing. A very odd and violent take on the revenge film this has aspects of I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE and to see Anderson take on such a role is a bit of a shock. Be warned, this little number will get inside your head and I hope we see more work on this level from Gillian in the future.
