A Short Film About Killing

5

Three characters, two deaths, one stunning drama. Like A Short Film About Love, 1988's Killing started life as part of the Dekalog series, before being expanded for the cinema. Shot in queasy green and nicotine-stain hues, it's about an act of brutality punished by another that's seemingly just as senseless. Explicit? Yes, but not exploitative, its moral posers gnawing the grey matter while the violence churns the gut. Short it may be, but this lingers long.
