GRIMM’S EYE VIEW:
The Bastard Love Child Of… BLOOD SIMPLE and WAIT UNTIL DARK
A slick, smart, spit-vicious little neo-noir, this black-hearted, bullet-fast tale of dunderheaded, desperate men, tough, resourceful women and smirking stony-faced psychopaths earned favourable comparisons to Hitchcock and the Coens when it hit the festival circuit earlier this year. Here’s your chance to discover what all the fuss is about, in what is likely to be one of the hottest tickets of the festival.
