The American – Anton Corbijn directs and George Clooney stars in this thriller about an assassin whose previous assignment in Sweden went sour so he hides out in the Italian countryside. His idyllic rest soon ends and he has to resume his life as an assassin once more. The film was liked by critics but despised by audiences as there is not a lot of dialogue, and the film has a lot of long shots and takes its time with its story. Not for everyone, but this is definitely the release of the week to check out.
