Yea, sure. Whatever you say.
But it's clean A. I'm not saying you have to like it. For example I despise the oscarwinning movie you adore - Titanic. But since this is "catch" thread it'd be stupid from me to write about a movie I can give only F, right? There is another example - another F to the most stupid and most overrated sci fi/mystery movie I've seen in my life - Donnie Darko.

In the meantime…


Good movies that mix many genres are rare. An unusual and in the same time awsome mix of crime, mystery, thriller, horror, drama, romance, action, sci fi, comedy and I dare to say torture porn - comes from Norway:
A fresh story based on a book by Jo Nesbo with twists and turns dares you to try to predict what will happen next where you of course fail and movie goes into another direction.

It's about a corporate headhunter (hunts talents not bounties) who also has another "job" - he's an art thief. He's married, no kids, and although his wife looks fantastic, he has an affair aside. While this sounds it's about some greedy and emotionless bastard, it's not really, he just needs loads of money, and why, well, watch the movie. Of course, things can't work all the time, and the disaster is imminent. Soon he'll be on the run and will lose almost everything if not all. That includes his hair too.

Cast is great, you'll definetly recognize a certain actor known for his role in Game of Thrones HBO series, those who like to check on less known movies could remember seeing him ages ago in danish Nightwatch (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110631/), pretty good thriller/horror. Other actors are not widely known, but they all did an awsome job.

Lemme quote myself from the previous post as it works also on this movie: watch it before Hollywood makes a silly remake.


P.S. Don't worry JDR, this movie doesn't leave any question unanswered - and there is no robot inside definetly.
