Friday Night Movie Review--TrollHunter
There's no need to go into the details of the story as it is all right there in the title. The titular lead is played by anti-American Otto Jespersen, OJ, unfortunately, to his fans. I have to say he is the glue that holds this thing together. My favorite is the bridge scene and his matter of fact resoluteness there was hilarious. There is a plot, but it's not the point of the film.
It won't be for everyone, but with all the very disappointing scifi and fantasy films out now, this is a breath of fresh air which restores one's belief in the cleverness and skill displayed in ostensibly independent films. It's at the Mayan. Go today.
