Bullhead Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: In perhaps the year’s most stunning international debut, Michaël R. Roskam’s Bullhead is a harrowing tale of revenge, redemption and fate. Domineering cattle farmer Jacky Vanmarsenille (Mattias Schoenaerts in a ferocious breakout performance), constantly pumped on steroids and hormones following a childhood trauma, initiates a shady deal with a notorious mafioso meat trader. 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. Acclaimed at festivals worldwide, the award-winning Bullhead is visceral saga bursting with rage that TwitchFilm calls “one of the most original crime films in recent memory.”

Review: When you see the title "foreign film" a lot of things come to mind, most of which may be cliche, but Bullhead breaks this mold.  This belgian-produced indie flick centers around a cattle-farmer that injects not only his crop with suppliments, but himself as well.  This film centers around a seedy world of cattle and the sheer aggression in Jacky Vanmarsenille's life.  This one is an intense watch, but definately worth your time.

The special features on this blu-ray include: The Making of BULLHEAD, Interview with star Matthias Schoenaerts, Theatrical Trailer, Commentary with Director Michaël R. Roskam, Interview with Michaël R. Roskam and THE ONE THING TO DO: Roskam’s 2005 Short Film starring Matthias Schoenaerts.
