W Delta Z

3

Hard-bitten cop Stellan Skarsgård and idealist rookie partner Melissa George are after a serial killer wasting members of a NY gang implicated but never charged in a notorious rape case. The sick twist? The victims have had their flesh carved with ‘W Z’, or rather W Delta Z – part of an equation reputed to disprove the theory of human altruism. Tom Shankland’s grisly debut is dark, unsettling and effectively directed (more so for being shot mainly in Belfast, as the Making Of reveals), even if stylistically it borrows so much from Se7en that Fincher should sue.
