IMPERIUM [2016]

Nearly a decade after his wonderful short film, Haber, director Daniel Ragussis finally makes his feature length debut with the tense crime thriller, Imperium.
Daniel Radcliffe continues to solidify his staying power as a FBI agent going undercover to infiltrate a radical group of white-supremacist's plans of a violent attack.
It's a fascinating reminder that there's plenty of homegrown terrorism spawned from the white-folk around the corner of Mayberry Street.  It still treads over familiar territory with it's "undercover officer loses his self" story but the more subtle humanizing moments and it's very impressive acting from the entire cast makes for a very engrossing, if not extremely unsettling watch.
