The Lost Weekend meets La dolce vita
2 May 2013 | by (Reykjavik) – See all my reviews

Asshole Parliamentarian Leifur likes to drink. And then some. Like an elephant in a porcelain store he destroys everything around him and completely disregards the feelings of his loved ones. Almost all of the film is seen through his eyes so we're there, in it, with him. I have never before been so submerged in alcohol during a film, so much so that I was hungover the next day. It's a trip told with flashbacks within blackouts, quite confusing but it all makes sense somehow. It's fascinating yet loathsome at the same time. I felt dirty afterward. Brilliantly shot and edited and the soundtrack is amazing. It's one of those films you have to see again. The performances are spot on. The writing is crisp. I would like to see a discussion about the daughter, and the Patriarchy. Big issues. Definitely not for everyone but it's up there with films about alcoholism like The Lost Weekend and the whole party-feel is definitely La dolce vita. Highly recommend it.
