Movie Review

Spun (2002) lost & found again :)

I’ve seen the film about ten years ago but forgot almost all of it and recently  I’ve found out director Jonas Åkerlund is making a Lords of Chaos (2017) film about early Norwegian black metal bands and musicians, Burzum (Varg Vikernes), Øystein ‘Euronymous’ Aarseth, Per “Dead” Ohlin etc so I looked through what kind of other films he made and found out he mostly directed music videos but ‘Spun’ intrigued me and I only realized I’ve seen it before only when I started watching it, it does have a ‘Requiem for a Dream’ vibe for sure but that’s a good thing :) glad I revisited this film. 21 more words
