Retribution ★★ Complicity 1998 (R)

Cameron Colley (Miller) is an investigative journalist who constantly runs into trouble with his editors. He's also addicted to cigarettes, cocaine, computer games, and sex with the married Yvonne (Hawes). Now he's looking into a series of grisly murders that possibly lead back to the youthful protests of a group of activists. Tends to be confusing more than compelling.

GB Jonny Lee Miller, Brian Cox, Keeley Hawes, Paul Higgins, Bill Paterson, Samuel West, Rachael Stirling, Jason Hetherington; D: Gavin Millar; W: Bryan Elsley; C: David Odd; M: Colin Towns.
