THE STANDOFF AT SPARROW CREEK
2018, 88 min, USA, Dir: Henry Dunham

Set over the course of one night, this razor-tight thriller focuses on an imploding militia searching for the traitor in its midst, whose actions resulted in a shooting at a cop’s funeral. With the clock ticking and every second counting against them, retired cop Gannon (James Badge Dale) must utilize his old skills to discover exactly what machinations pervade this ragtag group. Henry Dunham’s exquisite script is married with gorgeous cinematography, painting in rich, complex hues a section of society often represented simplistically on screen, forging an indelible humanity in a set of characters whose actions are often difficult to empathize with.
