  • This blood-soaked melodrama -- a far cry from most foreign films -- has been a festival favorite and might well develop a cult following, though it's far too gory to reach beyond the core audience. show more

  • May have a dull title, but it's lively, idiotic fun, at least until it goes too far past "too far" into the realm of "far too far." show more

  • Wirkola keeps the narrative taut, wasting not a frame; and he throws in funny moments. show more
