Essential Killing which Tara Brady describes as "a running man drama. Like Apocalypto , it thrives on adrenalin and the thrill of the chase. Gallo’s tremendous central performance, though mesmerising, exists as a hypnotic binary: fight or flight". Gallo's performance won him the Best Actor Award at 2010 Venice Film Festival.
