Tuesday Night Movie Club: In Order of Disapperance
January 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Tuesday Night Movie Club (TNMC) returns in 2019 with the dark comedy action film In Order of Disappearance, a 2015 WFF selection. The film is in Norwegian and Swedish with English subtitles.
Here’s the original description from the 2015 Film Guide:
The snowiest, funniest, and bloodiest crime comedy since Fargo, this all-star Norwegian thriller is a dark delight. When his son is murdered by drug dealers, a mild-mannered snowplow driver (the great Stellan Skarsgård) turns amateur assassin, trading in his Citizen of the Year trophy for a sawed-off rifle. As he systematically dispenses with the men responsible for his son’s death, his vigilante justice creates confusion among the underworld’s rival gangs, who mistakenly blame each other for the deaths, triggering an all-out turf war. Bruno Ganz (Wings of Desire, Downfall) and Pål Sverre Hagen (Kon-Tiki, WFF 2012) are perfectly despicable as the stoic godfather and sniveling fop lording over these motley heaps. Director Hans Petter Moland (A Somewhat Gentle Man, WFF 2011) has crafted a ruthlessly entertaining comic thriller with enough black laughs to match its impressive body count. The absolutely stacked cast also includes great turns from weird beard extraordinaire Kristofer Hivju (Game of Thrones, Force Majeure) and Birgitte Hjort Sørensen (Borgen). “Brought the house down… a dark, mordantly hilarious blast” (Indiewire).
TNMC is presented in partnership with the UW-Madison Department of Communication Arts and WUD Film.
