No, my tattoo is one of those ones that people see and think 'wow, that's so detailed and interesting, and pretentious...', and they are absolutely right. I do have a pretentious movie tattoo, and I absolutely love it. Sorry.
This year’s Karlovy Vary International Film Festival winner is a highly original and unconventional story of politics and convenient ignorance. Barbarians is a fascinating piece of modern cinema, executed with impeccable precision and rarely has a dull moment.
