The New Yorker: The Film File: Review: Kontroll (2005)

The New Yorker: The Film File: Review: Kontroll (2005)

Okay this is just a little piece of a 3 page review on Nimrod Antal's feature debut called "Kontroll."

"Kontroll" swept through the film festival ciruit, picking up several awards; it was also the largest grossing Hungarian film of 2003. It is, also, funny, thought provoking, and beautifully shot.

The super cool thing about this movie, on a personal note, is that the film's director, Nimrod, is an old friend from my high school days . We lost touch when he moved to Hungary, and I to New York, but were reunited when I luckily stumbled upon an ad for a screening at New Directors New Films.

Congratulations Nimrod, my hat goes off to you.

"Kontroll" is being distributed by ithink films, in LA and New York (and maybe more places too).
