Slim Susie makes the case that imitation is not only flattery, but the most effective language of postmodern cinema.

Audience Reviews for Slim Susie (Smala Sussie)

½

Fun Swedish dark comedy/mystery. Good stuff. I enjoyed this one far more than "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo".

Sweedish comedy gold. It was funny, pretty, and fast paced. This Twin Peakish little Sweedish, town full of oddballs; manic depressive police chiefs, amateur film makers, drug addicts, giants, etc, yields up a murder and conspiracy. Well worn territory, but never worn so well as here. Perspectives and chronology jump around as with Ritche and Tarantino, who are being subtly parodied, however this is, as much if not more, of a film about the contradictory impulses involved in "going home" than it is, a tour through small town's underbelly. The soundtrack is mostly bouncing indie pop, which helps keep interest during the camera's many first person drives through the city. I haven't been as pleasantly surprised by a comedy like this in a long time. Anyone interested in a fun, hip, whimsical, and inventive good time, see here.
