com­edy thriller⊲ Bren­dan Glee­son is on fine form in this dark and funny movie. He plays a small-town po­lice­man in the west of Ire­land who is glee­fully cyn­i­cal and de­fi­antly po­lit­i­cally in­cor­rect – much to the shock of

Don Chea­dle’s strait-laced FBI agent, who finds him­self work­ing with Glee­son to bring down a co­caine smug­gling ring. A crack­ing film that de­liv­ers in­tri­cate plot­ting, bloody shoot-outs and lots of sub­ver­sive wit. Dir: John Michael Mcdon­agh 2011, 15, 115min
