A little disappointed the English title didn't run with the literal translation of "power idiot" ... had me wondering who the titular character was, because on some level it could be most of them.
It's hard to say it's a black comedy in which Stellan Skarsgard violently avenges the death of his murdered son, because it is about as nasty as the plot suggests. But it is also funny in a "well *that* escalated quickly" way.
The only review I…
One of those highly-rated movies that is just bloody awesome (mate). On a big screen anyway... nothing happens in a rush, the cinematography's great (so much interplay between massive shots and claustrophobic close-ups), the soundtrack is Morricone's best, the story's good enough, the dialogue's fun, all the main characters are interesting... Absolutely top notch.
