Headhunters (2011)

Wow, I mean wow. Thrilling, so many good twists and really dark and funny in a twisted way. And beautifully shot. So many scenes that are just macabre and yet visually hilarious at the same time.

This must’ve been a really fun script to write. Plus it has Jaime Lannister as the bad guy. This sort of “small-time crook gets way in over his head and much suspense with a sense of humor ensues” is my favorite genre. I love films that are thematically strong and have really solid endings but are relentlessly entertaining in the storytelling (i.e. not resorting to camera tricks).

Definitely recommended (Amazon // iTunes).
