Calibre

With expert use of the filmmaking craft - a spectral, strident score, razor-sharp editing and chilly cinematography - and a series of intensely unnerving scenes that sees the two friends digging themselves deeper and deeper into trouble, British writer-director Matt Palmer proves his mettle with a directorial debut as gripping as it is gruelling.
