Must Watch: Official US Trailer for Belgium's Oscar Nom 'Bullhead'
"A career-defining, powerfully physical lead performance." That's Variety's quote from this trailer, and it looks like it's quite accurate. Drafthouse Films recently unveiled the official US trailer on Apple for Michael R. Roskam's Bullhead, starring Mattias Schoenaerts, the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar nominee from Belgium. I missed this film at numerous festivals last year and it's one of those I'm now kicking myself over, as it looks tremendous. It may also be just how incredible this trailer is, the editing and tension and intensity of the characters, it's got to be hard to watch this and not say you're intrigued. Must check it out!
