One of the absolute best films of the year, Ben Wheatley's harrowing KILL LIST, finally has a theatrical date and it's not looking nearly wide enough.
IFC is releasing KILL LIST to On Demand on January 4, with an engagement at New York City's IFC Center February 3 (the same big screen date as Ti West's excellent INNKEEPERS).
The film's official rundown reads: "Eight months after a botched job in Kiev, Jay (Neil Maskell) is an out-of-work hitman with no job, money, health insurance and a wife constantly on his case. But when his business partner Gal (Michael Smiley) comes over for dinner and pressures Jay into taking a new assignment, Jay quickly finds himself back in the game with the promise of a big payoff after three assassinations. Although the hits start off without incident, soon things begin to unravel and Jay's paranoia reveals itself as he is plunged into the heart of darkness."
While undoubtedly powerful in any format (KILL LIST is a real knockout) and would never really go wide in the first place, hopefully a bit of an expansion will ensue as the film really hits hard projected. It would be shame for audiences interested in discovering small, exciting, stellar movies to miss out.
