Blancanieves is a beautifully crafted re-imagined fairytale that needs no words. Character, Carmen's big marble like eyes and strong willful movement are enough to keep the story moving forward. It experiments with all that is the original tale of Snow White, only in a more traditional Spaniard way. It will have you at the edge of your seat even if you are familiar with the original tale and it will only grasp your heart to break it. The longing of a daughter for her ill stricken father, hits close to anyone's tear ducts and the sourness of a greedy stepmother is enough to make the skin crawl. Don't be intimidated by the fact that it is a lengthy silent film, the emotional provoking and artistic filming will be worth all the while.

The Hunt

Love children? Want to change your mind? Watch the Hunt, and just for a second perhaps you might find yourself completely engulfed in hate towards an adorable clueless little girl and if you have a heart even a whole village. The Hunt is an astonishing and exemplary film of the crowd following phenomenon, get enough people to point at the sky and say it is green, and that should be enough to make it so. 
Mads Mikkelsen gets to redeem himself as a human being, after taking the unsettling role of Hannibal Lecter in NBC's Hannibal, by playing kindergarten assistant Lucas. 

When things finally seem to look up after a life wrecking divorce, Lucas finds himself surrounded by pitchforks and torches. A little white lie turns into havoc and an endless battle to redeem himself from a fabricated ghastly image. The Hunt will have you clenching your fist, grinding your teeth, yelling at the screen and even shedding a few tears. It is an astounding demonstration of uncalled for cruelty and string of will from a broken man.
