You'd be forgiven for thinking that the real-life drama of Osama Bin Laden’s death might have stolen some thunder from Jerzy Skolimowski’s chase thriller about a Taliban fugitive.
But the War on Terror is nothing compared to the elemental hell this fighter faces once he’s escaped.
Vincent Gallo, in a haunted, wordless performance, shows Bear Grylls how it’s really done, reduced to a primal state of survival amid much physical hardship and an unenviable diet.
With Skolimowski’s commanding use of sub-zero settings bolstered with surreal imagery and a foreboding soundtrack, the result is a convincingly existential action thriller.
