The Hunt (Thomas Vinterberg, 2012)

Continuing on a path begun with 1998's The Celebration, Thomas Vinterberg's The Hunt tells the story of a man falsely accused of child sexual abuse who is ostracized by the small Danish town he lives in. If that previous feature centered on a harsh truth that everyone seemed unwilling to accept, here the situation is reversed, the plot revolving around a blatant falsehood that everyone for some reason is willing to swallow.

Welcome to Goya Cinema!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by. I do my best here to write open-mindedly about the film experiences I enjoyed the most. Good or bad, sad or happy, smart or stupid, all of them have improved on - paraphrasing a film critic I greatly admire - the sight of my room's ceiling viewed for the same length of time.

It's all work in progress. I encourage you to post comments, share opinions, start discussions. Suggestions about the blog itself are welcome.

Have a nice time!
