Evil (Ondskan) - REVIEW

Film of the Day #171/ 300

Evil is proof that school isn’t always the best days of your life. Nominated for a best foreign-language Oscar in 2004, Evil (Ondskan) is complex tale of struggle and survival. Erik, a 16-year-old boy whose life has been plagued by violence is determined to subsist, the only way he knows - by giving a good thrashing to anyone in his way. Directed with assurance by Swedish filmmaker Mikael Håfström, Evil is a powerful and engrossing film that justifies its violence with depth and substance. This is Fight Club in a classroom and highly recommended.
