Metalhead

seatbelt required!!

There´s some proper harrowing stuff at the beginning of the movie, then it settles down into quirky drama with lots of beautiful icelandic scenes in the background.

What i liked about it is the engagement with the idea of community since you can´t really ever escape where you are from. The central character doesn´t go to the city, but why do we expect her to.. hmm no question mark on this keyborad … Why do people move=())’_&%$ I´d love to live in iceland but i bet i´d hate it if was there… grass is always greener…

Of course i have more sympathy with a young rocker than a bunch of christian conservatives, but the cool thing is that both sides have a bit of give and take.
