When you're a cocaine fuelled alcoholic maniac son of an Iraqi dictator you need body doubles so all the people trying to kill you get confused. Latif is one such double, a perfect doppelganger for psychopath Uday Hussein, who is unwillingly roped into his debauched world of drugs, booze, opulence and psychotic cruelty. There aren't any real surprises here about what the infamous son of Saddam got up to but it's compelling viewing anyway, even with one actor playing both major roles.
An awesome supernatural thriller about a family with a dark secret. Thelma leaves her conservative Christian home in Norway for university and finds herself unprepared for the cosmopolitan life outside her isolated village. The stress of the culture shock brings on strange seizures that coincide inexplicably with the disappearance of her new girlfriend. Delving into the mysteries of her past she finds that beneath the veneer of a loving family home there lurks a terrible secret, a gift or a curse hidden in her family tree that shatters her sense of self and lays waste to all she thought she knew.
Pensive and tense, Thelma builds inexorably to a shocking unforgettable conclusion. A must see.
