A classy drug cartel thriller from director Denis Villeneuve, Sicario (Saturday, 8.30pm, Premiere) sees idealistic FBI agent Kate Macer (Emily Blunt) receive a dubious assignment after rising through the ranks of her male-dominated profession. Recruited by mysterious government official Matt Graver (Josh Brolin), Kate joins a taskforce for the escalating war against drugs led by the intense and shadowy Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro). Sicario is the Spanish word for “hit man” and Del Toro’s performance is electrifying. Salon Kitty (Saturday, 8.30pm, World Movies) is a cult classic starring the great Helmut Berger and the equally stellar Ingrid Thulin. The 1976 erotic drama, directed by Tinto Brass, covers the real-life activities of a high-class Berlin brothel used by German intelligence services during World War II for espionage purposes. Far more joyous is Gurinder Chadha’s Bend It Like Beckham (Sunday, 6.35pm, Romance). The smash-hit comedy-drama follows Jess (Parminder Nagra), the daughter of a strict Indian couple (Anupam Kher, Shaheen Khan), who is forbidden from playing club soccer in London. It also stars Keira Knightley, Archie Panjabi and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
