The Flick: Love, love, love the serious complexity of 'Headhunters.'  A clever and seamless blend of many genres wrapped in one cool and intricate story line makes for one fun outing.  Director Morten Tyldum takes on a full range of movie types and excels in all with flying colors.  (Think Danny Boyle meets Oliver Stone meets Brian De Palma – now that’s interesting!)  Plus lead man Aksel Hennie goes above and beyond in a chameleon-like performance that kicks acting ass – going from slick to sick ain’t easy. 

Best Feature: There’s a fabulous one-stop shop 'Behind the Scenes' doc that has interviews, on-set stuff and cool character insight galore. 

Best Hidden Gem: Love that Hennie’s female flame Synnove Macody Lund is a tall and long legged blonde who is in real life a...movie critic?  (Movie geeks rejoice!)

Worth the Moola: Great single feature plus a flick that exceeds all expectations – head out and hunt this one down.
