Nine, 8.30pm, M ( 2008)
Using the familiar premise of a politician being hunted down the day of their big speech, this thriller is a cut above the rest. Conspiracy theorists and cops alike go into overdrive when the fi rst female US president is assassinated, with the killer narrowly escaping. Months later, an unidentifi ed man ( Stephen Dorff ) is found in the bush with no memory of how he got there – until he slowly pieces together his memory and learns his undercover mission – to identify conspirators in positions of power involved in the assassination who want to overthrow the government. Co-starring Val Kilmer, it’s an exciting ride.
