07:09 pm - Film Talk: Nordic Noir
Hey guys I am going to see this film-plus-discussion on Saturday at Warwick Arts Centre.
In the past decade Scandinavian writers and film makers have come to dominate the realm of crime fiction, spearheaded by Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy, memorably adapted for the screen and now remade in the US by David Fincher. Critic and broadcaster, Nigel Floyd returns to explore the revitalisation of the crime thriller on the big and small screen (Wallander, The Killing) from the Scandinavian perspective. There will also be an exclusive preview of Headhunters, the first screen adaptation of a novel by Jo Nesbo.

Time 11-3.30, cost £10. If anyone wants to join me that would be great. I might buy tickets in advance, so let me know if you want me to pick one up for you.

Alas (OK, not actually alas in the main sense, and also they'd like it too) my parents are down for the weekend. Otherwise, that would have been a definite "yes!" for me.

Hopefully another time. I always spot these things so late unfortunately.

This sounds really interesting, hope you enjoy it. But I thought Headhunters was out ages ago! What's this exclusive preview business.

So you saw it ages ago? I had no idea. I think the media establishment in England really underestimated public interest in Scandinavian film and telly, so my guess is nobody bothered to buy rights to show it. Now they are all scrambling to catch up.
