The Mule (filmmakers/stars Leigh Whannell & Angus Sampson in person!)

Filmmakers/stars Leigh Whannell & Angus Sampson in person! As you feel every sharp gurgle and ride the rollercoaster of every hallucinatory, uncomfortable moment, The Mule puts you front-and-center into the craziest situation with the law you could imagine yourself in: Australia, 1983. You’re a naive guy with a batch of lethal narcotics hidden in your stomach. You’ve been detained by the feds on the way back from Thailand, and you make the choice to defy your bodily functions and withhold the evidence — becoming a “human time-bomb” in the process. Inspired by true events, this supremely dark action comedy stars co-filmmaker Angus Sampson (Insidious) as the perfectly hazy dope at the center of the storm, co-scripter Leigh Whannell (creator of the Saw and Insidious franchises) as a friend who fares little better — and the double shot of Hugo Weaving and Ewen Leslie as the two slimiest cops in the biz who are determined to win at all costs. A bomb blast of slick humor, upside-down twists and gut-churning tension.
Dirs. Tony Mahony & Angus Sampson, 2014, digital presentation, 103 min.
