Tracker (Sky Movies Drama & Romance, 6.10pm); Tonight's TV.
RAY Winstone grizzles his way through this turn-ofthe-century chase thriller as a Boer War veteran whose first job after arriving in New Zealand is to hunt down a suspected murderer.
With a hefty bounty at stake, the relentless Afrikaner pits his wits against his Maori quarry in the Kiwi wilderness.
It's a genuinely brilliant piece of work, combining the hauntingly beautiful scenery of The Piano with the bounty hunter buddiness of Midnight Run. Winstone's accent is spot-on, while Temuera Morrison gives the kind of mesmerising performance we have come to expect from an actor who seems to be the go-to guy for poetic and conflicted brutality.
