Jar City

You can’t escape the past.

Wandering through an unforgiving Icelandic landscape, a cop who’s seen too much finds he can still be surprised — though not necessarily in a good way — in this fairly-unique mystery thriller.

The complex case sprawling out in from him stretches back decades, hitting on murder most foul, rape, corrupt cops, and a rare disease wreaking havoc on multiple lives.

So, not exactly a laugh-a-minute comedy, is what I’m saying, I guess.

But, if you like your foreign detective flicks to be gorgeously downbeat and moody as all get out, this is a trip worth taking.
