NINE, 11.20pm, AV15+ ( 2006)

Firmly en­trenched in the wise­crack­ing gang­ster genre, this com­pli­cated comic thriller sees Josh Hart­nett putting his goofy charm to good use. Hart­nett plays Slevin Kelevra, a hap­less New Yorker who is mis­taken for his miss­ing best friend and thrown into the mid­dle of a turf war in­volv­ing the city’s two most pow­er­ful mob­sters ( Mor­gan Free­man and Ben Kings­ley). With the ri­val king­pins forc­ing him to carry out var­i­ous re­venge- based deeds on their be­half, Slevin must find a way to ex­tri­cate him­self from an in­creas­ingly volatile sit­u­a­tion. A highly en­gag­ing trib­ute to Hitch­cock, by way of Tarantino.
