Interesting, but...
17 September 2006 | by (Helsinki, Finland) – See all my reviews

As an admirer of Winding Refn's work, I didn't hesitate when I got a chance to see this movie. That said, I didn't go in expecting a masterpiece and now I can say; neither should you. The film focuses mostly on Winding Refn's financial woes and the stress it imposes on the young Winding Refn family. Expect a lot of numbers being tossed about and close ups of effervescent tablets dissolving into water, as if to remind you that the clearly stressed out Winding Refn is, well, stressed out. At only 80 minutes the film still feels somewhat lengthy. However, fans don't want to miss the scenes with Kusse Kurt and the relatively few scenes filmed on set. This is more the stuff of a DVD's extra material than a stand-alone film, yet fans might want to give it a shot.
