PG. 1992. Bruce Beres­ford drama set in the Deep South with Al­bert Fin­ney a fam­ily pa­tri­arch aban­doned by his wife and to­tally adrift. Daugh­ter Kathryn Erbe tries to bring some or­der into the house but Fin­ney may not be sal­vage­able. Re­laxed tale doesn’t re­ally go any­where, but Fin­ney dom­i­nates as a des­o­late, de­jected man. 8.40pm, Show­time 2

M. 2010. Of­fice worker Ryan Kwan­ten is an ev­ery­day of­fice worker, in an ev­ery­day town. He lives a se­cluded life and is bul­lied by co-worker Toby Sch­mitz. By night he as­sumes the iden­tity of Griff, roam­ing the dark streets to pro­tect the in­no­cent and the vul­ner­a­ble from dan­gers that lurk in the shad­ows. Pa­trick Bram­mall, Maeve Der­mody. 9.30pm, Go!

M. 2009. Ex­cel­lent pro­ce­dural thriller with Clive Owen as a driven, ob­sessed In­ter­pol agent on the trail of an in­ter­na­tional bank with fin­gers in ev­ery pie, in­clud­ing cor­rupt ones. At each turn, the bank re­lent­lessly finds a way to block his ef­forts, cli­max­ing with an ex­cit­ing final gun bat­tle in New York’s Guggen­heim Mu­seum. Top thrills. Naomi Watts. 9.30pm, SBS TWO

M. 2009. Sweep­ing, glam­orous – though some­what un­in­volv­ing – look at a wealthy Mi­lanese fam­ily, cen­tring around Tilda Swin­ton as the wife of the in­dus­tri­al­ist head. The mu­sic, the vi­su­als and the di­rec­tion sug­gest some­thing big is go­ing on but we don’t re­ally see it on screen. Flavio Pareti.
