Brighton Rock

Graham Greene's savage 1938 novel is turned into a dark little thriller by first-time writer-director Rowan (son of Roland) Joffe. The film (now set in the Mods-and-Rockers era of the early '60s) tells the story of 17-year-old thug Pinkie Brown (magnetic up-and-comer Sam Riley) who murders a rival gangleader. When a young waitress accidentally captures evidence of the crime, Pinkie romances her--just to keep an eye on the gal. But when her tough boss (Helen Mirren) begins to suspect Pinkie's motivations, Graham's trademark tension kicks into overdrive. Joffe manages to make the film look gritty and gorgeous ("Mad Men"-meets-A Clockwork Orange), even if he can't quite nail Greene's overwhelming air of moral turpitude. 111 minutes R. (Opens Friday 10/21)
