Josh Brolin takes the lead of advertising executive Joe Doucett, a man kidnapped and held captive for in solitary confinement for 20 years by Sharlto Copley’s mysteriously unforgiving antagonist Adrian Pryce. Finding himself released in the middle of a field without any explanation, his dark and violent quest for answers is something he is not prepared for.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
