Undertow (2004)
First screened in May 2005
Director: David Gordon Green. Cast: Jamie Bell, Devon Alan, Josh Lucas, Dermot Mulroney, Shiri Appleby, Kristen Stewart, Eddie Rouse, Patrice Johnson, Pat Healy, Bill McKinney. Screenplay: Joe Conway and David Gordon Green (based on a story by Lingard Jervey).

Twitter Capsule: Nice to see Green, Orr off their axes a bit. Exciting thriller, beyond welcome change of pace. More than a Hunter rehash.

VOR:   I'm not sure I see a lot that's groundbreaking here. Points for committing to 70s pastiche, though. Key for Bell, Lucas fans.
