No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
In Refn's skilled street-realist hands, the child becomes a potent, wailing metaphor for Tonny's own dilemma of rudderless need.
Works best when it's dwelling on the disconnect between Mikkelsen's lurid imagination and his disappointing reality.
Mikkelsen anchors the film with a tremendous presence that sells even the most soap-operatic moments with a lacerating clenched-teeth honesty.
Doesn't so much carve out new ground as merely provide jolt after electric jolt.
Second in a trilogy about Copenhagen drug dealers. Sardonic comedy in the "Goodfellas" vein.
There's virtually no limit to how far Mikkelsen's sorry, sad character will go when he's pushed, and the story ends on a very chilling note.
...in many ways resembles 2005's Cannes winner L'Enfant another film about a posturing street thug who finds his humanity from the child he does not want.
