The Vanishing is brilliant, yet disturbing film that weaves a spell-binding tale of abduction, pursuit, and resolution although not necessarily in that order. Criterion’s Blu-ray release is of typically high quality.
21 Days: The Heineken Kidnapping is a missed opportunity. The film, a fictionalized accounting of the 1983 kidnapping of brewing magnate Freddy Heineken, falls flat.
Drafthouse Films does it again with the superb, Bullhead, an Oscar-nominated Belgian crime drama that is a slow-burning character study and exploration of gender identity.
