    brilliant, mildly disturbing and irredeemably twisted tale from David Lynch's daughter; Jennifer: 'Surveillance' sees FBI agents Bill Pullman and Julia Ormond arrive in small-town America to piece together a string of grisly murders. But nothing is quite what it seems, as contradicting filmed testimonies from suspects and witnesses only add to the confusion. Bill Pullman is on good form whilst Julia Ormond, who worked with Jennifer's famous father on 'Inland Empire', puts in an elusive and captivating performance in what's easily her most daring role since 'Smilla's Feeling for Snow'. Well acted and directed, 'Surveillance' is an intriguing hybrid of surreal serial killer flick meets modern police procedural, and though you should be able to see the twist coming before the reveal, it's still a dark trip worth taking.

The never-ending horizon seems to retreat the closer you get, and if a car broke down here it might take forever for someone to notice. In the midst of it, Officers Jack Bennett and Jim Conrad, sit dangerously bored and dreaming of the kind of glory that can only come with a serial killer or maniac on the loose. By the time Federal Officers Elizabeth Anderson and Sam Hallaway arrive the next day, a string of violent murders does in fact appear to be plaguing the lonely road. The police are straining at the bit to get back out and apprehend the murderers, but the Feds work differently. In order to uncover the truth of the case, Anderson and Hallaway first have to take their witnesses back - back to what happened when their lives intersected. A few details slowly emerge: Officers Bennett and Conrad were checking the horizon for speeders, Bobbi and Johnny were in the cherry Duster, tearing the highway up and having fun. Little Stephanie's family stage wagon was cruising too, with her mom and new step-dad busy singing in the front seat and her brother David next to her in the back. The problem was, as Stephanie saw it, that adults never listen to little kids, no matter how many times she tried to tell them what she saw out the window. Perhaps if they had, it would all have turned out differently. As the Feds slowly expose the fragile little details each witness conceals so carefully with a well practiced lie, the 'truth' they are looking for starts to extract an enormous price no one expected.   Actors Julia Ormond, Bill Pullman, Pell James, Ryan Simpkins, French Stewart, Kent Harper, Kyle Briere, Hugh Dillon, Gill Gayle, Michael Ironside, Shannon Jardine & Mac Miller Director Jennifer Chambers Lynch Certificate 18 years and over Year 2008 Screen Widescreen 2.35:1 Languages English
