Cold Case Hammarskjöld Disutradarai oleh Mads Brügger
With the endless speculation that emerged in the wake of Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide, Cold Case Hammarskjöld’s wild postulations about secret political assassinations and biologically engineered viruses have a gripping, gruesome urgency: Watching it is like getting sucked into a Reddit thread at 3 in the morning.

A tremendously absorbing film, a documentary that plays like a first-rate thriller hinging on key issues of the Cold War and African decolonization.

  • OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Cold Case Hammarskjöld

    Holy crap! Mads has done it again. Less bombastic than The Ambassador CCH Is no less fascinating and given what we know about vested interests in Africa no less believable. I quite enjoyed the meta approach and elements of Bruggers trademark humour shine through in spades. Highly recommended!! 4.5 stars

  • Not A Sexy Vampire's rating of the film Cold Case Hammarskjöld

    I agree with Renton47 about the structure (though I'd argue Brugger needed a POC in the film in order for the climax to work). First half is wacky fun which gives way to a very serious second half which offers an outlandish conspiracy theory which, if true, has implications too horrifying to ignore. It seems far-fetched but there's that haunting, maybe, just maybe... Tighter edit would've made for a stronger film.

  • Renton47's rating of the film Cold Case Hammarskjöld

    Documentaries often exhibit a shortage of personality - CCH gives us a glut. Brugger, for better or worse, weaves a story in need of clear-eyed analysis with questionable conceits & eccentric staging. My suggestion - replace the typists with Goran playing the straight man. For a second you think he's let the film be derailed by one conspiratorial white supremacist. Then you remember the world we live in.

  • johmus's rating of the film Cold Case Hammarskjöld

    A film that feels like a visual manifestation of how "Google'ing" might look like for an artist. Mads Brügger is a data miner who uses cigars and aesthetics where others would use Macbooks and a wifi password. A scoop so crazy and revolting that makes you wish it's fiction while keeping the audience on their toes long after the film's finished. A reminder that the world has way more colours than only black and white.
