THE AMER­I­CAN (MA15+)

Uni­ver­sal

★★★★ An unashamedly dour, yet wholly sat­is­fy­ing thriller. Ge­orge Clooney plays Jack, a black-ops as­sas­sin who wants out

of the pay-to-slay biz. To en­sure his exit, all he

has to do is cool his heels in a sleepy Ital­ian vil­lage. Look very hard

at Clooney’s un­char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally re­mote (and highly ef­fec­tive) per­for­mance, and you are sure to be in­trigued, alarmed and sur­prised by what is on

Jack’s mind.
