WITH TIME TO KILL

Australia, 1987 (MIFF 1987)

Director: James Clayden

With Time To Kill is a film of the street and the city, of two cops and their prey. Lt. Nick Yates and Sgt. Max Clements make a hit-list and set out to rid their town of the human garbage that has accumulated out of the corruption that surrounds them. The hunters become the hunted in deadly, urban landscapes that seem to have no end.

Director James Clayden has been working in the area of experimental film for over 10 years. Recently, he has turned his hand to features and telefeatures.
