Trippy psychological thriller
24 September 2020 | by leevindoSee all my reviews

"Hager" is a unique film, that feels like a drug trip, in that it is very trippy, disorientating, elusive and oddly satisfying.

Loosely based on Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy, Hager tells the story of police detective Till Hager (Philipp Droste) who is tasked with tracking down a new drug that is said to give a glimpse into the depths of hell.

While there are millions of ways this story could play out, Kopacka chooses to tell it in an unpredictable and abstract way, that - while perhaps too abstract for a mainstream audience - had me at the edge of my seat.

The film's ending is arguably it's strongest point, where all the built up pressure finds it's release in a simple, yet effective way.

In the end this is a film that might be too abstract or extreme for most, but those looking for a dark and thought provoking fever dream, will be sure to enjoy this ride.
