This crime drama follows members of a police department as they try to uncover a mystery against the elements. In a fjord near a small Icelandic town, a ferry arrives from Denmark with 300 passengers -- but only their journey stops here. A storm overhead and a treacherous blizzard prevent the ferry and the townspeople from leaving the remote area. When a dismembered, mutilated body washes up onshore, the local police realize a murder has taken place just hours earlier. Everybody trapped in the vicinity immediately becomes potential suspects and chaos descends as they try to find the killer

Another Netflix foreign film, and this one is from Poland.  Not many movies or shows I've seen come out of Poland but this one seemed like something worth while seeing.  This is the summary.  After a body is found sewn inside of a cow hide.  A local detective discovers a killer is recreating an 18th century "plague" of criminal punishments on a bunch of bad people.  Now, does this sound like something we have seen before?

Mad World (Hong Kong)

This emotional drama about an ex stockbroker who is diagnosed with Bi-polar disorder gets released from a mental institution and has to adjust to a society that sees him as a threat while he deals with his own disorder and a father that he has never had a relationship with.  A very sad and interesting take on how we treat people with mental disorders.

Now this fast pace action super drama is somethingI didn’t expect even though the reviews said to be prepared. A triad soldier decides to go against the wishes of the clan based on the killing of a little girl. Then he becomes the target. But he is not so easily to kill. Over the top some times and very gory. But Very entertaining.

Accident (Hong Kong)

My next asian film comes from Hong Kong which centers on a hit man with some unique abilities,  This assassin has a crew that creates accidents for their victims so that people would not be able to track any particular person.  The catch to this story is what happens when the creator becomes the victim?  This is where this story goes.  We watch and see if he is right or is this another creation that backfires in his own mind.

Roma (Netflix)

If you followed my reviews, you know I love the work of Alfonso Cuaron.  So this B&W period piece made in Mexico was released with critical acclaim.  I wanted to take my time and watch it when I really had the mental time.  What a very emotional and moving piece he has created for this Oscar nominated film about a domestic worker going through life in the 70's surrounded by class divisions as well as political uprising in Mexico.
