Lrm Exclusive Interview: Stellan Skarsgard And Director Hans Petter Moland for In Order Of Disappearance

28 August 2016 9:17 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

All stories of revenge end up awry in one way or another.

Actor Stellan Skarsgard reunites with director Hans Petter Moland once again for a dark comedy tale about revenge in Norway with In Order Of Disappearnce.

The film follows a father who seeks out a drug lord who killed his son. As the drug lord’s minions turn up dead one-by-one, the hilarity ensues as the bad guys seek out the mysterious man responsible.

Lrm had a phone interview with Stellan Skarsgard and director Hans Petter Moland earlier this month. The conversation was over the dark humor, working on so many collaborations and filming in the cold, cold Norwegian environment.

In Order Of Disappearance is currently released in limited theaters in select cities across America and also available on VOD today.

Read the full transcript below.

Lrm: Congratualations, gentlemen. This long journey of film festivals have finally came to an end. »

In Order Of Disappearance Review

26 August 2016 5:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I’m fairly certain I’d watch Stellan Skarsgård do anything. Train a puppy to roll over? Sounds amazing. Delicately cook a perfect Frittata? I’ll be in the front row. But Skarsgård is at his absolute best when brutal violence is involved, only because of his endearingly maniacal appreciation of a good genre role. Only a few months ago he was able to play a boisterous European mobster in Our Kind of Traitor, and luckily, Hans Petter Moland’s In Order Of Disappearance gives us another Skarsgård role to love with almost no wait in between. A less cartoonish, grief-driven turn this time around for Skarsgård, but more killer Skarsgårdian goodness nonetheless. I thought August was supposed to be filled with crap? Yet here’s another positive review coming out of what might be a record-breaking high for typical late-summer garbage.

Skarsgård plays Nils Dickman, a Norwegian snow-plower whose »

Dark Wit and White Snow Collide in U.S. Trailer For Norwegian Thriller ‘In Order Of Disappearance’

7 July 2016 12:51 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If you like tales of bloody revenge, sharp wit, and Stellan Skarsgärd murdering people, we have the movie for you. In Order Of Disappearance, which has just been given its first U.S. trailer, is a Norwegian thriller that follows a fathers quest for revenge after his son is murdered and the incident is framed as an overdose. Bouncing around the festival and international circuits before being acquired by Magnolia Pictures, they’ll finally release it later this summer.

With a pitch-black wit and a cold, pale color palette, In Order of Disappearance looks to be a solid piece of revenge cinema. We said in our review: “The film simply wouldn’t work if it didn’t have layers that improved upon the simple story of a father seeking revenge. Thankfully, In Order of Disappearance is filled with so many twists on what you expect that it feels refreshing. Beautifully »

Film Review: ‘Rosita’

30 March 2016 4:26 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A lonely, middle-aged widower in a small fishing village arranges for a young Filipino to come to Denmark as his fiancee, but gets more than he bargains for when his adult son falls for his prospective bride in “Rosita,” a compelling humanist drama from the talented Danish helmer Frederikke Aspock (“Labrador”). Modest but punching far above its weight in terms of emotional connection, this naturalistically shot tale about unspoken expectations and unreciprocated dreams boasts fine acting and credible scripting, creating equal sympathy for all three leads. Cinematheque and broadcast programmers should take note of this popular fest item, which nabbed the best director prize at the Moscow Film Festival.

The action is set on Denmark’s windswept north Jutland peninsula, in a rural hamlet where fish dominates the local economy and drinking is the main source of entertainment. It’s a place where the men are stoic and emotions rarely run high, »
