Stop it, you fucking psychopath!
I want a word with Theo. Look into my eyes. Look me in the eyes. What do you see? Do you see anything? Nothing. There's nothing. There's nothing. You leave me alone now. You leave me alone now, Theo. Then I'll go. Thank you.

The story of a man accused of child molestation and "the hunt" that is a result of that accusation. The performances are astounding all around, not just from Mikelssen, which I've come to expect at this point. This movie is emotionally draining, frustrating and if you're a man, downright scarier than any supernatural horror movie you can think of.
I watched this movie months ago, and it resonates for a long time after initial viewing. A real work of art and the ending is perfect. If you haven't watched it, do so immediately.
