Swedish director Tomas Alfredson makes his return after the success of his superb adaptation of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s vampire romance novel, Let The Right One In (2008). His direction is filled with bleak, tension-filled imagery that coexists perfectly with the chilling atmosphere of boiling corruption.
Well last night was the 83rd Annual Academy Awards ceremony, putting a cap on the awards season in the movie world.
