So, this is what's great about DVRfest. I'd heard this movie was really good, but the subject matter seemed so dark and depressing that I've always put off seeing it. Now, I'm more or less forcing myself to watch a good movie, and it's for the best. It was great. But it was also depressing as fuck... although to be fair I thought the ending would be even darker than it is... because although this is my first Vinterberg movie I've seen enough of his compatriots' work to know that nothing ends on a high note in his country.
But still, the filmmaking is undeniably great. This is what everyone's talking about with Mads Mikkelsen. As a guy, you are so with his character every step of the way. So full of rage... and all it takes is one jackass with an ipad. I'm glad I finally saw it. Can't say I'll be watching it again any time soon.
And that brings me to the end of Day One. This might be a non-marathon daily best for me, eight films in one day. Sunday me will be thankful for the extra four hours though. And for tomorrow, I have something pretty fun planned, but first: some sleep.
