Free Fire

The Late Show!

(2016) dir Ben Wheatley w/Brie Larson, Michael Smiley, Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Sam Riley, Enzo Cilenti, Babou Ceesay, Noah Taylor [90 min; DCP]
A gun deal gone wrong in an abandoned Boston warehouse results in a hilariously chaotic feature length shootout in the over-the-top new film from director Ben Wheatley.

“A Violent, Hilarious Blast!” – Evan Saathoff, Birth. Movies. Death.

“Gritty Scorsese-like, ensemble, underworld shoot-out romp.” – James Verniere, Boston Herald

“The whole thing is awfully nihilistic, but that’s film noir for you.” – Chris Klimek, NPR

NYT Critics Pick NYT Critic’s Pick “Mr. Wheatley’s “High-Rise” was a highlight of 2016, and again he shows that he’s a technically virtuosic director whose humor has a bracingly nasty side. He’s also no dummy.” – Glenn Kenny, New York Times

“A highly enjoyable 90 minutes, especially if your tastes run to the violent, the absurd, and the violently absurd.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe
