Essential Killing (UK) in July
Artificial Eye have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Essential Killing on 11th July 2011. Vincent Gallo stars as a Middle-Eastern insurgent captured by US forces and transported to a secret detention centre somewhere in Europe. When the vehicle he is riding in crashes, he escapes into a snowy wilderness, a world away from the desert home he knew. Forced into extreme survival mode, and relentlessly pursued by an army that does not officially exist, he must confront the necessity to kill in order to survive. A provocative examination of the modes of modern warfare and the limits of human endurance, this thriller from veteran filmmaker Jerzy Skolimowski (Deep End) is anchored by an award-winning performance from Gallo.
