FILM: The Purge

A Lannister always pays their electric bill.
Ethan Hawk and Lena Cersei Lannister Headey have the night of their lives in twenty-first century dystopian United States of Mur’ca.  Thanks to the new Founding Fathers crime nationwide is through the floor.  One stretch of 12 hours on one particular day per year is dedicated to the purging of the American soul as all crime, including murder, is legal.

Locked up in their considerable home the couple (plus sprogs) fend off the deadly advances of a masked upper-crust gang (think Mean Street Posse) determined on freeing their bloodlust.  A solid, claustrophobic, high-concept thriller than poses the question “why don’t you just fucking move to Canada?!”
