SHAFT

8.30PM, ELEVEN M. 2000. New York City po­lice de­tec­tive John Shaft, nephew of the orig­i­nal 1970s de­tec­tive, goes on a per­sonal mis­sion to en­sure the son of a real estate ty­coon is brought to jus­tice after a racially mo­ti­vated mur­der. Slick crime drama that has an im­pres­sive cast and evoca­tive sound­track.

PAS­SION PLAY

8.30PM, ONE NA. 2010. Let­ting go of life and tak­ing a re­flec­tive look back at some of its mis­ery is the ba­sis upon which this film is set. Me­gan Fox as circus sideshow at­trac­tion Lily beau­ti­fully por­trays the pro­tec­tor of man’s spirit. A sad but rather lovely watch.

STRAW DOGS

11PM, 7FLIX MA. 2011. Com­pletely over­whelmed by bru­tal vi­o­lence, this film is hard to watch. A young Hol­ly­wood cou­ple played by James Mars­den and Kate Bos­worth re­turn to her small home­town after her fa­ther’s death. Old con­flicts re-emerge with her ex part­ner, lead­ing to a vi­o­lent con­fronta­tion.
