Ett hål i mitt hjärta

Lukas Moodysson Sweden, 2004

commonwastrel's rating of the film A Hole in My Heart

Since Moodysson has made two of my favorite films in Fucking Åmål and Lilya 4-Ever, I'm going to cut him a lot more slack than I allot to other directors. While I can appreciate the overwhelmingly disorientating attempt to proclaim some kind of statement, the execution is distracting to a fault. This film is indeed disgusting, but the main problem is the self-awareness of trying to instill a forced shock value.
