Spiral Series 1- 3 / 7 Discs 900 Baht
If youre looking for an unpredictable small screen thriller to sink your teeth into, then you sometimes have to look beyond the television output of the UK and the US. To France, in this case, as three series of the highly acclaimed TV show Spiral have been brought together in this single box set. And, along with The Killing, its an international television treat thats aching to be discovered.
The show goes under the name of Engrenages in its native France, and its a police drama series starring Caroline Proust and Gregory Fitoussi. Known as Spiral when it was broadcast in the UK, whats drawn people to the show has been how intelligently it treats its viewers. Youre not spoon fed everything here, as instead, the writers offer you enough, but arent afraid to let you do some of the work. The conventional Hollywood approach to such subject matter is absolutely nowhere to be seen.
Its gripping drama, made all the better by it being set in another country, and thus dealing with a different way of accomplishing things. For an English viewer, that certainly helps make Spiral interesting. But its the sheer quality of the three series you get here, and the willingness to stray from convention, that make this boxset worth the money. Its gritty, unpredictable drama, and with further series ordered in France, its great to hear that theres more of it to come.

I.D. / 1 Disc 300 Baht
Intense, ferocious and deeply unsettling, I.D. is an excellent examination of Britain's unsavoury contribution to global culture: football hooliganism. Whereas Alan Clarke's The Firm showed the violence that lurked behind a seemingly normal façade, I.D. posits football hooliganism as a feral temptation. Dedicated, ambitious undercover policeman John (Reece Dinsdale) becomes seduced by the violence of an East London gang, ultimately becoming lost from his regular life with his wife (Clare Skinner). Dinsdale delivers a measured performance that sees him spiral from committed, right-minded policeman to shaven-headed, Nazi-saluting monster, revelling in the violent impulses he embraces with glee and, alarmingly, becoming a hero amongst those he is infiltrating. Warren Clarke is absolutely monstrous as the leader of the hooligan gang, a paragon of bigoted hatred and the embodiment of John's future. Often unnervingly realistic, director Phil Davis is adept at creating riotous mob scenes that chillingly accentuate the world into which John is drawn. It could be said that I.D.'s premise is too thin, and that hooliganism is not addressed in an effective manner, but it is without doubt a chilling character study of the temptation of violence and the horrific influences that lurk in the heart of society.
