Spar­row 9.30pm, SBS TWO ★★★ PG. 2008. En­gag­ing Hong Kong crime com­edy from Johnny To about a group of pick-pocket broth­ers who are drawn into a scheme to fleece a crook by his lovely exmistress Kelly Lin.

Trio of broth­ers in a dys­func­tional fam­ily led by the psy­chotic David Wen­ham, com­mits an hor­rific rape and mur­der. Bru­tal Aus­tralian film ex­plores in flash­back the rea­sons for their bar­bar­ity, their re­la­tion­ships to each other, their girl­friends and their mother. A con­fronting but un­de­ni­ably pow­er­ful film ex­pe­ri­ence. Toni Col­lette. Hol­ly­wood­land 11pm, 7TWO ★★★ M. 2006. Brood­ing mys­tery ex­plores the mys­te­ri­ous death of 1950s TV Su­per­man Ge­orge Reeves (Ben Af­fleck), a bit player who does not en­joy the role that makes him fa­mous. Al­leged to have shot him­self, though mur­der was sus­pected, Reeves had pow­er­ful en­e­mies, as pri­vate de­tec­tive Adrian Brody dis­cov­ers while in­ves­ti­gat­ing his death.
