The life of Jan Svankmajer, a Czech surrealist animator, filmmaker and artist whose work inspired other influential filmmakers like Terry Gilliam. Working under Communist regime was a blessing and a curse for a creative young artist.
With a serial killer claiming victim 13 and rumors of corruption in their force, the West Yorkshire cops are told to cooperate with a team from outside - Peter Hunter and two hand-picked associates. Hunter gets little help but plunges ahead, discovering that one of the 13 victims may have a different killer. This part of the investigation leads to late-night calls, another murder, and bureaucratic moves to push Hunter aside: he may be getting close, not to the serial killer but to bad apples in the force. Christmas approaches.Written by

You don't like the police much, do you?
No love lost, no.
So when someone kicks down your front door, kills the dog and rapes the wife, who you gonna call?
Well it certainly wouldn't be the West Yorkshire Police - they'd already *be* in there, wouldn't they!

A gritty Yorkshire brought to life in shocking detail
The second part of the RED RIDING trilogy takes up the storyline three years later. The eventual capture of the Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe, serves to muddy the waters of investigation but a new detective aims to get to the bottom of the conspiracy.
It's like the first film, but not. This is more of a police procedural, which may well be because of the detective lead (Considine gives a solid performance here). Once again, police corruption is the order of the day as we finally learn just how deep it goes.
It suffers a little from being the middle film in a trilogy - thus only a few loose ends are tied up here - but makes up for that with an ultra-frightening performance from Sean Harris (ISOLATION) as one of the most disturbed coppers you'll ever see on screen.
