#thesnowman ☃ (15)
As the first snow of #winter falls, a twisted #serialkiller gets to work, leaving a chilling clue beside each victim, forcing #detective Harry Hole to decipher the sickening thoughts and riddles of a maniac.
When a woman disappears one snowy evening, the only clue to her whereabouts is her pink scarf, which has been wrapped around the neck of a snowman. But as the snow thaws, her decapitated body is discovered. There’s a killer at large, and he seems to be playing a sick and twisted game.
The local crime squad’s lead detective, Harry Hole (Michael Fassbender), is deployed to hunt down the elusive killer, but he can’t do it alone. Enlisting the help of stellar recruit, Katrine Bratt (Rebecca Ferguson), the pair embark upon their most dangerous mission to date, and must utilise every skill they’ve learned to hunt down the killer known as ‘The Snowman.’ With the clock ticking, they must reopen decades-old cases if they are to solve the #mystery and prevent further women from suffering the cruellest of deaths.
Adapted from the seventh #novel in the popular Harry Hole series by Norwegian crime-writer #jonesbo The Snowman is directed by Tomas Alfredson (#TinkerTailorSoldierSpy ) and features a remarkable cast.
Michael Fassbender (#aliencovenant ) plays troubled detective Harry Hole, while Rebecca Ferguson (#thegirlonthetrain ) takes the role of his skilled sidekick. Support comes from Charlotte Gainsbourg (#janeeyre ), Chloë Sevigny (American Horror Story), J.K. Simmons (#justiceleague ) , James D’Arcy (#dunkirk ) and Val Kilmer (#kisskissbangbang ). Overall I gave this film a 3/5 Stars 🌟 🌟 🌟 Eye-catching sceneries and a high quality performance by Michael Fassbender just wasn't enough to satisfy me. I don't know if it was the air conditioning temperature which gave me that chilling feeling. But one thing for certain I needed a cuppa #tea and my female friends body warmth to get my blood pumping again.

This film is a masterpiece, it's beautiful and weird at the same time.
It's frightening. It's unnerving.
But a spectacular piece of filmmaking nonetheless.
Let me say that Eraserhead is not a film for everyone. Many people will find themselves confused by the strange atmosphere, surreal imagery, and signature David Lynch sense of purposefully awkward pacing.
This is possibly one of my most personal favorite films. It is dark, tense, atmospheric, and filled with sounds and images that will send chills up your spine.
It's a film that takes more than one viewing to truly begin to comprehend, but is quite a ride either way.
There are moments in this movie that will literally scare the shit out of you, then there are moment that will confuse you to no end.
Yet, it's all beautiful and something wonderful to behold.
The film's plot while initially incomprehensible to most, can be broken down into the tragic tale of a man named Henry Spencer stuck in a dark decaying city overrun by factories. During the film, he is forced to deal with the prospect of taking care of an illegitimate premature deformed child.
Now that's the plot, but the dream like visuals and sound design take you right out of that story and transport you to another realm where women sing from radiators, babies are born looking like worm-like humanoids and a man in a planet looks out of a window.
None of it makes sense, but that's the point.
Overall, the movie is quite an experience. This is a film that you will either love or utterly hate. For myself, I managed to understand the film from the first time I saw it and have enjoyed it since.
This film is excellent and extremely beautifully layered.
