Kill Me Three Times
(MIFF 2014 )
Director: Kriv Stenders
Simon Pegg gets his El Mariachi on as a ruthless assassin in Kriv Stenders’ comedy thriller.
Following the mammoth success of Red Dog (MIFF 2011), and supported by the MIFF Premiere Fund, Kriv Stenders takes us to a West Australian surfing town where a charismatic hitman (Shaun of the Dead’s Simon Pegg, cleverly cast against type) acts as the spark that ignites murder, blackmail and revenge.
Having been hired by a wealthy gent (Callan Mulvey) to ‘take care’ of his wife (Alice Braga), this mercurial assassin gets down to business only to discover there’s more than one person after her. Throw in a gambling addict (Sullivan Stapleton, also in fellow 2014 MIFF Premiere Fund film Cut Snake), a small-town Lady Macbeth (Teresa Palmer) and a corrupt cop (Bryan Brown), and you’ve got the makings of a saga that rises to Rashomon-esque heights.
