Pain is Satisfaction: The Percussive Trailer for Crime Film ‘Black’s Game’

Cinematographer of many a short film, Óskar Thór Axelsson, is making his feature directing debut with a Stefán Máni novel. Black’s Game focuses on the evolution of the 1990s Reykjavik underworld from a tepid endeavor to a stirringly violent one. At the center is a gang (based on no gang in particular) of drug dealers who aggressively fight for control of the trade.

From the look of the trailer, things are about to get ugly.

Check it out for yourself (now with convenient English subtitles!):

Hell yes. With everyone talking about “going gritty,” it’s nice to see a filmmaker just going ahead and doing it.
