    Has anyone watched The Hunt yet?

    Honestly, it's a fantastic film. I give you permission to take the day off work and go rent/buy/download the film and marvel at it.

    To be honest, it's just like his other film, The Passion of the Christ. It's half 'n hour of "hey, everything's great" and "this is living the life!" etc. followed by an hour and a half of abject misery. It's a film you can watch once but you'd never want to repeat the experience. In my opinion anyway.
