first time post in this thread, but I like to come here to find great little gems that I'd likely never find anywhere else.
My contribution here is one that I have not seen mentioned. If it has, my apologies.
It's a sly little story of a kidnapping that goes wrong because the kidnappers choose the wrong victim.
The Disappearance of Alice Creed
Speaking of "Gems", it stars hottie British actress, Gemma Aterton as the kidnapping victim and 2 other Brit actors that you've probably never heard of, but they all give fantastic performances and they are literally the only three actors in the film.
Most of the movie takes place in an unknown city in a UK apartment, so the feel of the film is a bit claustrophobic, but to me that did not take away from the tension of the atmosphere, it only enhances it. There are plenty of twists and turns in this film to keep your interest peaked, and even a few "WTF" moments that you probably won't see coming.
This is certainly a very small budget, Indie flick, so don't expect the typical over the top, Hollywood style, dumbing down script, or excessive violence that takes away from the plot of the film.
There is nudity (Ms. Aterton in fine form) and sexual themes, but it is intricate to the plot and does not feel unnecessary (not that any nakedness of Gemma would ever feel unnecessary
Overall, I'd say this film is certainly worth a rental, but you may catch it on cable, like i did the other night.
