America take note: Denmark is bringing back the lost art of the PG-13 kids flick and they're making you look bad in the process. It's time to step up.

With The Substitute, director Ole Bornedal has managed to bring together two kinds of cinema and construct a film that I can only describe as being Dogme 95 meets The Monster Squad. It took me about 30 minutes to realize it, but when the realization finally hit, it was like a ton of bricks; "Holy crap... I'm watching a kids movie!" From there the movie was a joy to take in and had me grinning from ear to ear, remembering my own childhood and all the lost days of watching edgy kids flicks from the 80s like The Gate, »
