Ben Wheatley’s eerie and then ferocious Kill List is all hairpin turns, opening like a standard B noir featuring two grumbly hit men. But the revelation that the protagonist (Neil Maskell) is a wildly unstable Iraq War vet who’s used to killing without knowing why clues you into the schizoid moral universe. Kill List swerves into the most sordid vigilante territory before tumbling down a hole into the realm of Huh? Did someone put on a reel from The Wicker Man? The final twist is both baffling and repulsive, but as an evocation of the triumph of evil, it’s peerless.
