Another Round – 7

A baffling subject, at least for this non-Scandinavian: drinking alcohol, on the job and eventually to excess. Rather than condemn the practice, the movie seemed to show that it helped some, while killing others. So maybe the subject was really about mid-life (turning 40) crisis, or male bonding, with the booze as catalyst, or backdrop. Mads Mikkelsen starred, and I would’ve been less surprised had he received an Oscar nomination rather than director Thomas Vinterberg. It was certainly well done, but I still don’t know how I was supposed to feel (like Sound of Metal in that way).
