More nastiness from director Nicolas Winding Refn. It's painful to watch Ryan Gosling sleepwalk through this horrible mess. High camp: pure crap. No no no.

Writer / director Nicolas Winding Refn and actor Mads Mikkelsen create one of the most difficult and rare phenomenon in cinema: empathy for a total jackhole loser character.

Nicolas Winding Refn (Pusher, Bleeder, Bronson, Valhalla Rising) finally gets to make an American Movie. It pleases me to see James Sallis' novel given the dark Danish treatment. Many Bad Ass Mofo's. Very violent. Ryan Gosling is awesome as usual, but why Carrie Mulligan when you could have cast Eva Mendes. Mmm? Or Salma Hayek, Zoe Saldana, Eva Longoria, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Ana de la Reguera? C'mon guys!

Bleak Danish prison drama with a great performance by Johan Philip Asbæk. Not nearly as good as A Prophet, but worth a view if you can tolerate the violence and oppression.
 
 
Award winning beautiful but long family drama from Danish director Susanne Bier on the topics of fatherhood, responsibility, violence, revenge and forgiveness. Outstanding acting, music, cinematography and performances.
