Criterion Collection: Insomnia | Blu-ray Review

29 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Erik Skjoldbjaerg’s 1997 directorial debut, Insomnia is a prescient prototype of what would now be termed Nordic Noir in today’s global film market. At the time of its release, it was one of the first Norwegian films of international note in quite some time, with Skjoldbjaerg joining the ranks of other notable newcomers like Pal Sleutane and Bent Hamer. An inverted film noir, utilizing light instead of shadow, there’s a cold blankness to the film, making it a sort of waking nightmare. When all is visible, there’s no place to hide, forcing the film’s protagonist into internalized retreat, escaping into himself. Too much light engages a similar sort of madness as the eternal shadows.

The murder of a teenage girl opens the film, shot on grainy super 8 while we witness the killer cleaning up the act. To investigate, a Swedish police officer stationed in Oslo, Jonas »

The HeyUGuys Summer Preview – The Purge: Anarchy

6 May 2014 4:53 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Watching James DeMonaco’s first Purge film was something of an anticlimax for me. The trailer’s depiction of Purge night had been such a delicious one – America’s streets dancing with a gleefully tooled-up population exacting bloody vengeance for tolerating 364 days of neighbourly behaviour– but the film never delivered on its vicious promise. And it inexcusably wasted Lena Headey. I enjoyed the squirming claustrophobia of the locked down family, the breakdown in community spirit and the comeuppance of Ethan Hawke’s materialistic salesman dad James while simultaneously longing to see what was happening outside. To shove the entire Sandin family aside – intruder and all – so I could curl up in front of the rolling Purge coverage on their big screen and enjoy the guilty pleasure I’d actually come to see.

My enthusiasm for the prospect of The Purge: Anarchy is the prospect of that trashy viewing experience being realised. »

Listen: Electronic Duo Air’s Unreleased Tracks For Norwegian Thriller ‘Pioneer’

10 April 2014 6:38 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Having long-operated cinematically as part of Sofia Coppola’s usual ensemble, the electronic group Air has recently taken to a range of other left-field projects. First it was a soundtrack in 2010 to Georges Méliès’ “A Voyage To The Moon," then accompaniment to the documentary “Corman’s World” more recently. Now the French duo are continuing that streak with a musical role in Norwegian director Erik Skjoldjaerg’s latest film, and we’ve got our first taste of the result. Via Empire, a series of six soundtrack cuts have hit the web from “Pioneer” the latest work by Skjoldjaerg (who directed “Prozac Nation” and the original “Insomnia”), and they offer Air’s signature sound transferred to the film’s tale of intrigue. Set in the 1980s during the Norwegian Oil Boom, the plot throws an ensemble including Aksel Hennie, Wes Bentley and Stephen Lang into political rivalries as they race to »

Clooney & Heslov Planning ‘Pioneer’ Remake

14 February 2014 2:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Coming off the back of The Monuments Men, director and star George Clooney and business pal Grant Heslov are in talks to create a remake of Norwegian thriller Pioneer.

Set in the 1980s, the story follows two brothers working during the Norway oil boom, who lay pipeline in the North Sea. Dangerous as it is, an accident occurs, leading one of the brothers on a mission to uncover the truth, with him realizing he may have taken on a task too big for one man.

The original production, directed by Erik Skjoldbjaerg (Prozac Nation), was released in its home country in August 2013, with limited screenings opening at various international festivals. With the original being less than a year old – and with this news surfacing – it says to me that it was either very successful…or bombed, and by attaching Clooney’s name to the remake there’s hope for another try. »
