In Order of Disappearance
Upstanding community leader Nils has just won an award for "Citizen of the Year" when he learns the news that his son has died of a heroin overdose. Suspecting foul play, Nils begins to investigate, and soon finds himself at the center of an escalating underworld gang war between Serbian drug dealers and a sociopathic criminal mastermind known only as “The Count.”
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you're looking for cocaine, I can tell you I don't have drugs. But what I do have are a very particular set of snow removal vehicles; Snow removal vehicles I have acquired over a very long career. Snow removal vehicles that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you'd let my son go, that would've been the end of it. I wouldn't look for you, I wouldn't pursue you. But since you didn't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will plow you.
Hans Petter Moland's film is a story about fathers and sons, parental responsibility and cold hearted, blood soaked revenge. Most people will see similarities with Headhunters or the quirky characters that populate the Coen's world although the icy Scandinavian humour, led by Stellan Skarsgaard, sets a tone all of its own.
Nils Dickman hails from Sweden but lives in Norway, recently crowned Citizen of The Year in his small town. Life as a respected family man is turned upside down when his son is murdered, believed to be the victim of a drug overdose. Nils refuses to accept the coroners report and heads off to track down the men he believes to be responsible; cue a pile of dead bodies…
Stellan Skarsgaard punches a lot of people on his way to nail a bad guy who is a cross between Richard E Grant and Richey from Bottom (only norwegian).
I think I like the cut of Hans Petter Moland's jib.
The blackly comic crime stylings of the splendid A Somewhat Gentle Man are replicated to a certain extent for In Order Of Disappearance. The difference here is that the comedy is transferred from another Stellan Skarsgård weight-of-the-world riddled character pretty much wholesale to the villains of the piece.
The comedy is also a lot darker and this is, really, more of a serious crime drama than anything. That's not to say it's not very funny in parts because it is, with the final death of the film being an outstanding piece of recalling not to mention the reaction of the wife of Skarsgård's…
Stellan Skarsgård entra directo al número 1 del ranking "Charles Bronson del Siglo XXI". In order of disappearance combina violencia y humor negro de manera magistral, me ha dejado con ganas de mas material del duo HP Moland/S Skarsgård.
Kraftidioten, or In Order of Disappearance which it is called in English, is like an Norwegian crossover between the Coen brothers and Quentin Tarantino, just not as good. I felt like the movie was trying a bit too hard, it was trying to be tougher than it actually was. I know it's not to be taken completely serious, but I still feel like it could have done better with another cast, some of the actors felt very misscasted. The movie is still good entertainment, there's aspects that are really good, but still I can't seem to like it as much as everyone else seems to have.
The movie is about Nils, a Swedish immigrant that just has been awarded for…
A perfect quintessional Norwegian dramedy! Easy to rewatch and pure fun
"In Order of Disappearance" starts as a tough and intense revenge thriller but degenerates into a disorganized mob farce. It's 1/2 of a great film.
Revenge flicks are certainly not my bowl of weed. Well, unless they’re made like this. It is no secret that snow is known to have a calming and blissful quality pertinent to it, but in the north, among other things, it also means death (and welfare), and as such carries certain existential undertones, for what we’re witnessing here is not the gruesome action firsthand but rather its imprint on the screen, and that white blanket in a way sugarcoats the experience. Also, cocaine. Nothing personal, but I do believe John Wick is one of the silliest 2014 movies I’ve seen, whereas Force Majeure still holds that innerawards position as my favourite that year. Now, Kraftidioten might be something you’d get…
I feel like the filmmaker was influenced by Korean cinema, but doesn’t have the same twists and surprises that Korean filmmakers can stir up. The performances are solid, Particularly Pal Sverre Hagen who I thought stole every scene he was in.
Leaning heavily into the cartoonish without actually being very funny, it relies heavily on pointless tropes (for once, I'd like to see an ordinary person out for vengeance who does not secretly have old acquaintances from the wrong side of the law to help them out) while squandering its assets (both its lead, and some incredibly menacing snow machine scenes that - to reiterate - are inexplicably not capitalized on).

Weird and troubling, but also funny and exciting.
Did you see A SOMEWHAT GENTLE MAN? Did you like that? You'll like this. Same bleak comedic streak. Good times.
... There's a moose on that snowplow...
Sorry, I mean there's a moose on that snowplow!?
In Order of Disappearance, or Death Wish: The Comedy, is a beautiful (albeit ugly) movie, with a strong, quiet but convincingly vicious central performance from Stellan Skarsgard and a magnificently comedic turn from Pål Sverre Valheim Hagen (Norwegian Edward Norton) as The Count. That scene between Greven and “Wingman”, it’s remarkable just to watch him switch so seamlessly between endearing and menacing.
And dare I mention “Papa”? A welcome surprise to the cast and a great foil for Skarsgard.
The real highlight of the film, however? Structure, notably the chapter-by-body-count format. Every time someone is killed we get a brief break from the film…
