EUFF13 Review: Bullhead (2011)
Belgian director Michael R. Roskam’s blistering debut feature Bullhead is a surprising and powerful story of two men involved in the black market hormone trade. It starts off as a rural Flemish crime story, but soon reveals a shocking tragedy from the past that colors everything that motivates the characters in present day towards a frenzied and dramatic conclusion.
Not for the squeamish, Bullhead’s modern story may ask for some leaps of logic and narrative implausibilities, but in the end, offers a sobering examination of the male psyche, and the monsters society programs us to become.
Bullhead screens on Saturday, November 23, 2013 at 9:00 PM. To reserve your space for this free screening, visit the European Union Film Festival Toronto website.
