Bleeder * Nicolas Winding Refn (1999)

Posted in drama and tagged on by .

Not exactly a feel-good-movie, this oldie of Nicholas “Bronson” Refn. We follow a few young (and less young) people reflecting on their boring lives. We in particular watch Leo who finds his already shitty life going down the drain when his girlfriend gets pregnant again and insists on keeping the baby. Something snaps in Leo and he looses it. “Bleeder” is a rather depressive film which confrontates the viewer with the dullness of ‘normal life’ which tends to become a prison. Leo’s reaction is not entirely unexpected, just somewhat out of proportion. The film itself is alright, there are some funny camera experimentations which add to the viewing experience.
