Crop And Save
There's really no foothold to gain in order to redeem this film; none other than watching it for a laugh. Bad cinematography, bad editing, bad acting (the male character above all others) and what's more important, bad storytelling. The scenes with the priest were the ones where we laughed more hysterically: the one where the guy budges around as if he was annoyed by a mosquito rather than a demon takes the cake. (MEMO: bring insecticide rather than holy water next time.) Oh, don't forget to take a look at the fake 10 star reviews here on IMDb for an additional laugh.
Looking back at this gem
A great film to watch if you're used to watch films accepting the director's choices and criticizing only their effectiveness.
Yes, the almost two and a half hours are filled with a lot of story and back-story that are at times difficult to follow; yes, some of the symbolism seems to have been thrown in just for the sake of it, and you'll have to wait for the very last scene for it to pay off; yes, a beef hormones mafia may sound an unappealing (even ridiculous? Well, think again ) topic to someone; yes, inevitably there are some misses among the hits.
But this is all about losing something (your innocence, your future, your self ) and trying (or not) to regain it: in fact, the advantage of having such a wide amount of narrative is that you can make sense of the movie from different (and equally valid) points of view.
Give it a try. In its sophistication, Rundskop has what it takes to appeal any kind of viewer, as long as he is willing to get hooked.
