Human Nature, & Mob Mentality

Just as man has succumbed to the urge to kill, fight, and procreate since the beginning of time, also has man had the tendency to persecute others without clear or rational explanation. These attacks, popularly called ‘witch hunts,’ come under fire in the Academy-Award nominated Danish film “The Hunt,” which tells the story of how one little girl’s lie has devastating consequences.

A very good movie

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Well, I wasn't disappointed as Thomas Vinterberg has delivered one of his strongest movies so far. Indeed, personally, I have always been intrigued about our current obsession about pedophilia and this movie gave me some really interesting insights about our current approach about such issues.

Telling lies were the only way to go and and play.

The humans kept pushing, and they eventually destroyed not only the child's life, but an innocent man's life too. Brain washing is a excellent technique.

I don't even know what to say about this film, it was really good, but almost torture to watch, it was too realistic, and reality is painful.

What a mess of... read more

Following a tough divorce, 40-year-old Lucas has a new girlfriend, a new job and is in the process of reestablishing his relationship with his teenage son, Marcus. But things go awry. Not a lot. Just a passing remark. A random lie. And as the snow falls and the Christmas lights are lit, the lie spreads like an invisible virus. The shock and mistrust gets out of hand, and the small community suddenly finds itself in a collective state of hysteria, while Lucas fights a lonely fight for his life and dignity.

"5/3/17 I haven't been so emotionally involved in a film in a long time. Mads Mikkelsen is magnificent as the school teacher whose life is turned upside down after a little lie develops into false accusations and the destruction of a man. Shocking, gut-wrenching, this had me hooked from start to finish and will probably stay with me for a very long time. Incredible."

"This was a hard watch. In a good way, that is. This movie is socially relevant in the society that we live in. When does switching gender roles make anything different? Perhaps in some eyes. Very chilling and real performance by Mikkelson. "

"First viewing - May 4th Since this film was the first to rise to the top of my new Netflix list, I figured I'd kick off the month with it once I finally got time to sit down with it. And part of me wants to thank those who encouraged me to watch it ASAP, because it's a really well made film with a wonderful cast. The other part of me wants to thump y'all on your noses, because holy hell did this film piss me off most of the time. I find it a little hard to swallow that people would blow a situa"
