♠ ♠ ♠ – Corrupt police and political drama that all begins with a series of child murder case.  Intricately well woven storyline with well-developed main characters that carry out the complex storyline of corruption, power and justice system.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – Original

Swedish Crime-Mystery-Thriller . 2009
Directed by Niels Arden Oplev
♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ – You should watch the original version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo before the Hollywood version comes out this winter.  The new one is directed by David Fincher so it actually might be pretty good, however, I’m not sure if the new version will have the same intensity and darkness the original film have.  I watch a lot of thrillers from around the world, but this is one of the top choices for me.  With its multi-layered storyline that converge throughout the length of the movie; and with the two distinct and well developed main characters who carry the story… it can’t get much better than this in terms of mystery-thriller movie.

The story in short… a media-ruined journalist is hired to dig deeper into a murder of a woman that occurred years ago.  The journalist is unknowingly helped by a young female goth hacker who has a troubled life (to put it lightly) of her own… [ imdb ]

13 Assassins

Japanese Samurai-Action . 2010
Directed by Takashi Miike
♠ ♠ ♠ – Story of gathering 13 assassins amongst Samurais in the 1800s Japan, in order to assassinate a corrupt (actually, “fucked up” is a better way to describe him) political figure.  Takashi Miike is well known in the Indie scene to be directing very intense and edgy films that only certain group of people would like, or could even digest at times.  This isn’t as crazy as some of his other movies, but I do like watching a serious Samurai movie… especially if it’s done by a director like Takashi Miike… [ imdb ]

JCVD

Jean-Claude Van Damme
Directed by Mabrouk El Mechri
Belgium . Drama-Crime-Comedy . 2008
♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ – This is not a regular Van Damme movie.  And most importantly, this is not the same ass kicking Van Damme we’re used to seeing in his Action movies.  He plays himself in a fictional story which actually has a lot of non-fictional emotions/experiences tied together.  This movie is in French, so you don’t have to worry about the funny accent either.  This is by far his best performance (yes, acting-performance) and movie to date.  There are handful of comical elements throughout the movie as well which are mostly him making fun of himself.  Whether you are Van Damme’s fan or not, if you appreciate a good movie then you should definitely check this out… [ imdb ]
