Unter Kontrolle (2008)15789
Unter Kontrolle: Directed by Jennifer Lynch. With Caroline Aaron, Hugh Dillon, David Gane, Gill Gayle. Two FBI agents attempt to clarify the murders occurring in a desolate region. They approach the witnesses of the latest incident with the help of the local police. All of them hide something and all have wildly different stories to tell.
“A pair of serial killers is on the loose, and their latest hotspot is Nebraska. When the FBI investigates, they find that all the witnesses have conflicting stories and are leaving out parts that make them look bad.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJennifer Lynch is not her father, and it is not fair to her for everyone to compare them. However, for those who are concerned, this is not on the level of David Lynch (but few things are). In its own right, itu0026#39;s a very entertaining and suspenseful film, and it might keep you guessing until the end. For the first half, we are only given a small part of the story, and it works well… I just had to know the rest.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBill Pullman is fantastic as always (though heu0026#39;s beginning to show his age). I canu0026#39;t see anyone else in the role. Julia Ormond is not familiar to me, but she is also excellent. Cheri Oteri and French Stewart did a great job in serious, and in Stewartu0026#39;s case menacing, roles… a nice adjustment from their past.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI havenu0026#39;t seen anyone compare this film to the crimes of Charles Starkweather (which inspired u0026quot;Natural Born Killersu0026quot;), which strikes me as odd. Two killers driving through Nebraska? Seems like a connection… but then, maybe Iu0026#39;m just crazy.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis film is worth seeing and a fine piece of work. It may not be remembered in a few years (it has already begun to fade quickly), but hopefully word of mouth keeps the attention on it for a while.”
