A Week In Film #374: Flix N FX

Twisted title screen
Twisted (2004)
Like Suspect Zero, another one of those on-the-trail-of-a-serial-killer movies that tried to capitalise on the success of Se7en. Here, the USP is lead detective Ashley Judd is a risk-taking alcoholic who keeps blacking out and, I dunno, maybe she’s the killer, huh? Huh? HUH?! Oh, and ANDY GARCIA KLAXON.

La French title screen
La French AKA The Connection
Think French Heat meets French, um, The French Connection, with an investigating magistrate on the heels of Marseilles’ biggest smack smugglers. Jean Dujardin and Gilles Lellouche make for excellent sparring partners.

The Carrier title screen
The Carrier AKA The Bag Man
Seemingly another crappy mortgage/tax write-off gangster movie with big names – De Niro, John Cusack – put to little good use. Something about a mob boss and a mystery package that needs collecting or delivering and a motel in the middle of nowhere and… Really, nothing of note.
