    Review: 'Easy Money: Hard To Kill' Starring Joel Kinnaman Is A Worthy If Not Hugely Inventive Sequel

    We, like a large portion of the rest of the world, really enjoyed the first “Snabba Cash”—retitled in English to the less-memorable “Easy Money”—director Daniel Espinosa’s pulsating Swedish crime film that launched both him and soon-to-be “Robocop” Joel Kinnaman onto our radars. We complimented that...

    Göteborg Review: Joanna Hogg’s ‘Exhibition’ Intrigues But Ultimately Alienates

    It’s one of movieland’s minor mysteries that “Exhibition,” the third feature from British director Joanna Hogg, is the first to have been snapped up immediately for U.S. distribution: it is by some distance her least accessible movie, and features the smallest, cameo-level role from Tom Hiddleston, ...

    Interview: Director Joanna Hogg On 'Exhibition,' Tom Hiddleston And The Challenges Of Staying “Indie”

    Since her debut with 2007’s “Unrelated,” which is also regarded as the breakout for a certain Tom Hiddleston, British director Joanna Hogg has been quietly making a name for herself as a filmmaker of very distinctive and original style. Her third feature, “Exhibition,” which played at the Göteborg I...

    Interview: Director David Mackenzie On The Cast And The Process Behind 'Starred Up' Plus Upcoming Projects

    One of the highlights of the Göteborg International Film Festival, and indeed one of the highlights of our year so far, was catching up with David Mackenzie’s “Starred Up," which, if you missed our review first time out, you can read all about here. The unflinching but brutally human prison drama is...

    Terry Gilliam: My Life In 8 Movies

    Kicking off what may be a semi-regular series, the wonderful Terry Gilliam proved totally game for the challenge when we found we had a few minutes to spare at the end of our interview at the Göteborg International Film Festival (you can find the rest of it here). Essentially, the idea is that while...

    Interview: Writer & Director Steven Knight On 'Locke,' Tom Hardy & Future Projects Including 'Eastern Promises 2'

    One of the chief pleasures of the Göteborg International Film Festival, aside from the charming Swedishness of it all (particularly fond of the helper whose novel take on the “switch off your f*cking phone” message was to implore us not to forget to turn our phones “back on, the second you leave”), ...

    Interview: Terry Gilliam On Rewriting 'Don Quixote,' His Role In 'Jupiter Ascending' & Lacking Diplomacy

    Terry Gilliam is fast becoming one of our favorite interviewees, so in general we take every opportunity we can to talk to him. Just after its Venice premiere, we had a long chat about his new film and at-least-partial return to form, “The Zero Theorem,” and then early last month we talked again in ...

    Göteborg Review: Star-Studded 'Trespassing Bergman' An Irreverent, Warmhearted Doc About Ingmar Bergman's Legacy

    As much as we’re diehard devotees to the work of Ingmar Bergman, occasionally the sombre reverence in which he’s held can make the prospect of participating in the critical narrative that surrounds his astonishing filmography feel about as much fun as, well, playing chess with Death. But “Trespassin...

    Göteborg Review: Venice Winner ‘Class Enemy’ A Lean, Absorbing Parable Of Authoritarianism & Rebellion

    While we could wish it had a less punny title, “Class Enemy,” the debut feature film from Slovenian shorts filmmaker Rok Bicek is in almost every other way exemplary. Unashamedly cerebral, the film’s cool intelligence shows most in its control and formal rigor that encourage the audience—whose sympa...

    Göteborg Review: Iceland’s ‘Of Horses And Men’ An Appealing, Droll Comedy Of Human-Equine Manners

    While we’re leery of the kind of cultural stereotyping that might lead us to infer that Iceland’s greatest natural resource is quirk, hand drilled by Bjork and Jonsi from the country’s plentiful quirkmines, it’s a reputation that their submission for the Foreign Language Film Oscar doesn’t contradic...
