ESSENTIAL KILLING at CPHPIX

ESSENTIAL KILLING (Poland, 2010) screens at Copenhagen International Film Festival

In 'Essential Killing' (2010) actor Vincent Gallo plays Mohammed, a
Taliban from Afghanistan on the run from American soldiers through the
mountains of Poland after slaughtering three American soldiers to bits.
While I would not say this film is bad nor good, I would definitely say
that it is very worth the time as it is certainly a film not soon to be
forgotten. Who would of thought Gallo could pull off such a feat! He is
compelling in his role as Taliban on the run and while intimidating, his
character also begs sympathy in a weird and twisted way. Despite his
fierce bursts of 'essential killing' while on the run and his ravenous
hunger, which even drives him to breast feed from a large woman on the
roadside, one cannot help but root for this mysterious enemy while
feeling disgust for him simultaneously. While my friend and I were the
only ones clapping at the end of the film (in a full theater), it is
unarguably a riveting, shocking film, action packed and nothing like you
have ever seen before...Two thumbs up for Jerzy Skolimowski's film,
'Essential Killing' and Vincent Gallo's gratuitous and stellar
performance!

Plot Summary from IMDB
A Taliban member who lives in Afghanistan is taken captive by the
Americans after killing three American soldiers. He is transferred to
Europe for interrogation but manages to escape from his captors and
becomes an escaped convict on a continent he does not know.
Written by: Anonymous

Captured by the US military in Afghanistan, Mohammed is
transported to a secret military black site somewhere in the Eastern
Europe. When the armed convoy he is riding in plummets off a steep hill,
Mohammed finds himself suddenly free and on the run behind the enemy
lines, among a hostile, snow blanketed forest. Relentlessly pursued by
an army that officially does not exist, Mohammed must constantly
confront the need to kill in order to survive.
