30/02/14 Black's Game (2012)

Icelandic crime film. Sounds like a bit of an oxymoron to me. I've got a chum who lives over there, he once got stopped by the rozzers and done for some driving offence. He went to court and was given the choice of a fine or a night in the cells. In Iceland everything costs at least fifty million quid, so he chose a night in the cells. He reported to the local (out of town) police station and ended up drinking beer and watching TV with the one cop on duty then went home in the morning, hard time served.

Last year was the first time Icelandic police fatally shot a criminal suspect. Even over here in Blighty, the plod enjoy occasionally shooting people to death. Frequently the intended person!

So, yeah, this is a film where some fella falls in with a bunch of crims, takes drugs, earns money, bit of bum rape, the odd bank job and smuggles contraband.

It's actually pretty good.
