Artful, wry, debauched Bacchanalia.
25 August 2017 | by NikSee all my reviews

Allegedly based on true circumstance, in which case a commentary on Icelandic political and social alcoholism and addiction - but certainly a study of humanity and hedonism - at once tragic and comic, delightfully insane and horribly sordid.

Engaging if you are not bent on linear plots, so much as total immersion into the artfully contrived flashbacks and blackouts of the enigmatic and grotesque protagonist as he parties hard all the way to the bottom. Edgy POV camera work, sharp editing and score evoke the decadent shenanigans of the political elite off the rails.

Well cast and acted and a little eccentric. The kind of film I for one love!
