Gnarr: There are two kinds of people in this country. Those who know the difference between hail and sleet, because they have the experience and have been cold, and they know how it feels to be cold... and to try to start their wreck of a car with a dead battery, and somebody starts honking behind you...

Stórkostlegt! (Magnificent!)
23 March 2014 | by (Vermont) – See all my reviews

This fantastic documentary follows the campaign and election of Jon Gnarr, a comedian who became mayor of Reykjavik (Iceland's capital city) in 2010. He started his own political party -- the "Best Party" -- as somewhat of a joke, but it resonated with the Icelandic people at a time when the country was experiencing a major financial crisis and were fed up with corruption.

If you happen to be Iceland-obsessed, as I am, you will be thrilled by the Sugarcubes and Björk references, as well as a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the Icelandic political structure (which, in this case, challenges the existence of a structure altogether!). Also, if you've visited Iceland, as I have, you will adore the plethora of shots of Reykjavik landmarks, storefronts, and landscapes.

I cannot recommend this documentary highly enough -- it is hilarious, thought provoking, and inspiring.
