Move Over, Mapplethorpe and Serrano
7 October 2018 | by TrTm316See all my reviews

Vidar left me unsatisfied. Here in Minnesota, the "bachelor Norwegian farmer" is a decades-running meme only recently terminated by #MeToo; that this character exists in film was cheering of itself, and he comes across as empathetic at first. The method of vampire siring -- hilarious to me, mind-blowingly offensive to Christians -- created the potential for a fascinating film. But the subsequent plot was too one-dimensional and the characters' motivations too thin. I stopped caring much, and at film's end my reaction was "Meh. Quitter." It's worth seeing just for the audacity, but it could have been so much more.
