The Belgian crime-thriller Bullhead is one of my favorite films of 2012. You can read my review here. Now director Michaël R. Roskam’s surly flick has hit Blu Ray, and it looks fantastic. Buy it here.
Nominated for this year’s Academy-Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and critically acclaimed at festivals worldwide, including the AFI Film Festival, Berlin Film Festival, Fantasia and Fantastic Fest…
Domineering cattle farmer Jacky Vanmarsenille (Matthias Schoenaerts) became reliant on steroids and hormones following a childhood trauma. After he initiates a shady deal with a notorious Mafioso meat trader, circumstances lead him down a twisted road of vengeance and torment. When an investigating federal agent is assassinated and a woman from his horrid past resurfaces, Jacky must confront far-reaching consequences and whether the real meaning of manhood is hormonal or emotional.
