In the aftermath of Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy, there has been an explosion of interest in Scandinavian thrillers and crime dramas. The popularity of Borgen, Wallander and The Killing (amongst others) has also led to a number of English-language adaptations, with Kenneth ...

Not quite the Thomas Crown Affair, but definitely a well-made, fast-paced thriller.

These suspenseful, intrigue, twist and turn movies aren't really my cup of tea. This one included..even though I recognize that it was a well done film, contained some really good actors, and had some rather interesting scenes. I do have my exceptions to the rule (for example the...

Headhunters is a film I was sure was going to be a cool Scandinavian hesit flick. I was so wrong, as this was just so much more. Hennie is fantastic as Roger Brown, a headhunter who uses interviews to obtain information on valuable art which he then intends to steal. He soon come...

What makes Headhunters so ridiculously engaging is how the narrative develops in a way that you cannot guess the outcome. That's precisely the fun. Like classic suspense of the past, this has the kinds of twists and turns that would make Hitchcock proud. There's one surprise afte...
