DOWN RIVER - 1989

Down River image

Set in the North of England, a plainclothes policeman takes on the task of hunting down his former childhood friend and working partner when Johnny Mays goes off the rails and on a killing spree.

The denouement, thanks to Gallagher's strong writing and excellent characterisations, is unforgettable.
