Wasteland | Chicago Reader


This British heist picture is familiar but energetic genre filmmaking, more interesting in its particulars than in its overall conception. Luke Treadaway, the charismatic lead of David Mackenzie’s Tonight You’re Mine, plays an ordinary young man who gets framed for drug possession by a criminal outfit based in his town. When released from prison he decides to get even by robbing the gang’s tightly guarded headquarters. First-time writer-director Rowan Athale shows a knack for location shooting, grounding the material in a vivid sense of place. His sense of character isn’t nearly as accomplished, however; everyone here is just a sketchily realized noir archetype. With Timothy Spall, Neil Maskell (Kill List), and Vanessa Kirby.
