The Survivalist

Grubby, lean and fist-clenchingly tense, this BAFTA-nominated thriller from British writer-director Stephen Fingleton is a masterclass in how a minimalist approach to filmmaking can have maximum effect. Essentially a three-hander, where you never know with whom the real power lies, your own sympathies will be as tested as your nerves are shredded.
