At the same time I didn't hate the prequels trilogy (episode 1-3) though I have to admit there were tons of problems.

Indie Review: Danish Thriller THE HUNT

This one and In A World (review upcoming) are the last two films I saw at MSPIFF. I have been intrigued by The Hunt for a while because I've been hearing great things about it and Mads Mikkelsen's performance. Well, he certainly did NOT disappoint. The Hunt a.k.a.
