Essential Killing

After he kills two American security operatives, a Taliban fighter (Vincent Gallo) is captured and sent to a detention center where he's tortured and interrogated. Refusing to cooperate, he soon escapes but finds himself lost in a snowbound landscape with little in the way of provisions and his captors close on his trail. Emmanuelle Seigner costars in this war drama shot with sparing dialogue and stark realism.
