Sicario - Film4 - 9pm

The first of our two picks tonight, this crime thriller stars Emily Blunt as a principled FBI agent enlisted by a shadowy government task force (fronted by Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin) to bring down the leader of a powerful Mexican drug cartel.

Written by Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water) and directed by Denis Villeneuve (Dune, Prisoners), Sicario thoughtfully probes the aftermath of America's War on Drugs, while also boasting incredible performances, taut set-pieces and a twisty screenplay.

We Own the Night - Turner Classic Movies - 9pm

We're also recommending this crime thriller which takes place in '80s New York.

It stars Joaquin Phoenix as Bobby, a club owner with connections to mobsters who is estranged from his policeman brother (Mark Wahlberg) and father (Robert Duvall).

However, after a violent incident, Bobby agrees to take part in a dangerous operation with the cops to save his family.

Atmospheric, well-acted and featuring a handful of terrifically tense sequences, We Own the Night deserves to be seen by more people.
