New to Netflix UK - 29/04/13

Another disappointing week unfortunately, although there are some good films to watch.

Mesrine: Parts 1 & 2 - Biopic charting the life of notorious French gangster Jacques Mesrine who was widely regarded as France's most infamous gangster. Thanks to a terrific performance by Vincent Cassel, this two-parter spares no remorse in chronicling the criminals life even if the script gets a bit wonky at times.

Takers - A group of thieves target an armoured car as their next big job, unaware that a police officer is not about breaking rules to stop them. A mixed-bag movie which features a great heist but is bogged down by too many plot holes, one-dimensional characters and poor story-telling.

Please Give - A couple find themselves at ends with the granddaughters of the woman who rents their flat. Full of horrible people played by great actors, this well-crafted darkly-comic drama is well worth your time and attention.

The Night Listener - A late-night radio host begins a telephone relationship with a young boy, but things turn sour when he begins to question the boys identity. Other than the rare dramatic turn from the always-great Mr Williams, there isn't too much else on offer for this run-of-the-mill thriller.
