    Saw it at a preview here in Berlin, Max. It's probably first on a brief (I expect) arthouse cinema "tour" before something like a DVD could be expected.
    It was educational and thus I do not regret having seen it. Some weird to outright sick people in it. The makers took a strict restraint approach, so nothing was commented, no single hostile or even only probing question asked to the people interviewed.

    The directors were present and there was a Q&A afterwards. Many questions/reactions were less than friendly, as many people felt the movie was just giving a platform to violent, white supremacist, homophobic, anti-Christian criminals who have murdered and set churches on fire. The aloofness of the female part of the production team (in reacting to those questions and views) bordered on arrogance and did not help.

    By all means go see it if you have the chance, I don't think one often has the chance to get inside views of this "world". Expect not much music, though, and no exciting shots of denim either. (The best jeans I saw on other members of the audience, certainly not in the film!), and do let us know what you thought eventually, please.

    Hey, great that you've seen it and thanks for the answer. The DVD comes out on Nov 12th.

    In fact, I used to listen to Black Metal years ago, and though it's completely different from my main character (maybe i've got a dark side hidden inside), I loved the music back then. Of course I know many of the facts of what happened back in 93 in norway.

    But it was always a transcendental, spiritual musical approach, I never shared or could comprehend the radical ideas of some involved bands/people. I was just captivated by the atmosphere of some bands and still think that "En vind av sorg" and the whole "Transilvanian Hunger " album by Darkthrone are some of the most atmospheric and intense pieces of music I know. (But I'm getting off topic)

    The radical ideas drove me away from the music finally (although I couldn't resist going to see "Wolves in the Throne Room" and "Der Weg einer Freiheit" this may, they were great btw and have of course a nature-inspired, almost hippie-like approach to their music - off topic again!).
    Also there's a huge difference between the views of Fenriz and Varg Vikernes, and I wonder that he participated at all. I hate and despise his ideology.
    I read also, that the movie is not commented and that it shows the perpetrators, but not the victims and leaves radical statements speak for itself. That could be dangerous if you can't make up your own mind about that topics.


    Anyway, sounds like a must-see, even for the non interested, I hope I can find a cinema that shows it. In the end, movies that leave you thinking or shocked are the best, don't you think?
    And then I'll let you know, when I saw it, ok? Thanks again!

    In germany it's available in Nov. But maybe I'll just get the international version, I don't need subtitles. Have you read "Lords of chaos" by Michael Monnighan (or so)? Same subject, also controversial.

    Saw Scott Pilgrim vs The World last night and loved it, although it didn't stay completely true to the comic books it stayed pretty close to them which was awesome as I'm a big fan of the comics! But yeah really enjoyable film.

    I saw "RE: Afterlife" in 3d last weekend. Was a nice cinema experience. And I saw "The Town", yesterday. Nice movie, too.

    :eek: You guys are talking about the rating right? Yes it's 18+ here, that's such a huge difference, I wish I lived in Europe.

    probably the shopping scene or the scene where the swedish exchange student walks to her room from the bathroom. But I don't know if you need to protect 12 year old kids from that...

    I agree! People's views are just really different in North America.
