9.30PM, GO! ★★★

Don’t take this pulpy Pro­hi­bi­tion-era af­fair too se­ri­ously, and you will have a fine old time in­deed. There are good ol’ boys runnin’ moon­shine down in Vir­ginia. Cops are want­ing a cut of the ac­tion, or to sim­ply cut them up. Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy play the lead roles, a pair of ru­ral booze traders who go to war against some nasty fed­eral agents from the big smoke. Amid all the violence, and there is a stack of it, Guy Pearce steals the show as the most rep­re­hen­si­ble screen vil­lain of 2012. An­other good col­lab­o­ra­tion from the team be­hind The Propo­si­tion, di­rec­tor John Hill­coat and screen­writer Nick Cave.
