Altered States

Leifur (Olafur Darri Ólafsson) wakes up hung over, buck naked, smelling of sex and slathered in makeup. All told, it’s just another day at the office for Iceland’s most notorious politician. Emulating Leifur’s chronologically jumbled, kaleidoscopic reality, Marteinn Thórsson’s extremist fever dream plunges us into a bacchanalian hell. Winner, Best Actor, Karlovy Vary 2013.
