The Norwegian film Troll Hunter has been quietly on my radar for almost a year now. It’s a clever, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, faux documentary-style look at the possibility of mythology being real — if you just know where to look. The imagery is fantastical and surprisingly beautiful in parts, as is the sheer scale of the monsters.
It looks hella fun.
Here’s an earlier trailer. It’s a good bit longer and a lot more action-oriented. And looks just as enjoyable. Also, you gotta love the tagline: “The most important movie of our time is Norwegian.” Awesome.
Troll Hunter will be showing at the Boston International Film Festival, and I’m gonna watch the shit out of it.
