Slow West (John Maclean, UK) Who says Brits can’t do dusty westerns? Well, probably no one, but if they did, Slow West would prove them wrong. Kodi Smit-McPhee stars as a teenage aristocrat who comes to America and is taken in by Silas (Michael Fassbender). (4:45 p.m.)

Alléluia (Fabrice Du Welz, Belgium) If you take a good hard look at the last 15 years of bloody cinema, you’ll find that France is one of the undisputable hotbeds for the genre. Alléluia, based on the classic 1969 cult film The Honeymoon Killers, is technically Belgian, but looks like it will carry the torch admirably. (10 p.m.)
