I'll Sleep When I'm Dead

Genre: Mystery and Thriller, Drama; Starring: Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Clive Owen, Malcolm McDowell, Charlotte Rampling; Director: Mike Hodges; Runtime (in minutes): 103; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Paramount Classics

Director Mike Hodges (”Get Carter”) still knows how to unspool a mystery with a hypnotic pace of sadistic intrigue. There’s a squeamish strain of homophobia to his new thriller, yet Clive Owen, as an ex-gangster out for vengeance, has more aura than any actor around.
