While many of you are rushing out to check out the 2012 Oscar Nominated Best Pictures, one that you should make time in the Best Foreign Film category is ‘Bullhead‘ which puts some of the American picks to shame.
Drafthouse Films picked up ‘Bullhead‘, a real gem of a crime thriller, so it will only be going into select cities since it picked up an Academy Award nominated for Best Foreign Language Film. If you live in a reasonable distance, go check out this film. It quite the intense thrill ride and deserves to be in more theaters than just ‘select’ ones.
I found it odd that the Weinstein Company or Paramount Vantage didn’t grab this up since it could easily find an audience, but I think it should find a good one when it hits dvd/blu-ray. If you saw ‘A Prophent’ then this will be right up your alley, plus it’s even more intense than that one. Below are the first international trailer for ‘Bullhead’ aka ‘Rundskop’ along with the US trailer that just hits, and plenty of posters and images of the film to get your interest up.
For some reason Matthias Schoenaerts reminds me of Tom Hardy in this very physical role and how he’s infused himself so much with the character. If you’ve seen Hardy in ‘Bronson‘ you’ll get what I mean.
