Movie Info

Set within the stark Icelandic landscape, Out of Thin Air examines the 1976 police investigation into the disappearance of two men in the early 1970s. Iceland in the 1970s was a idyll; a farming community, pretty much cut off from the much of the rest of the world. Crime was rare, murder rarer still. Then two men disappear under suspicious circumstances and foul play is suspected. The country demands a resolution. Police launch the biggest criminal investigation Iceland has ever seen. Finally, six people confess to two violent murders and are sent to prison. It seems the nightmare is over. But in many ways the nightmare has just begun....

Critic Reviews for Out of Thin Air

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

A stylishly executed but narratively muddled effort that confounds as much as it engrosses.

Documentaries should never feel useless and empty. Out of thin air does a great job in that matter. [Full review in Spanish].

Chilling, jaw-dropping and somewhat frustrating account of Iceland's most infamous murder case, and the convictions for it pulled "Out of Thin Air."
