JAR CITY (2006) Absolutely the bleakest police procedural movie I've ever seen. No surprise it's from Iceland. What looks to be a random murder during a home invasion becomes a tangled web of lies, corruption and deceit going back generations. This is the mystery genre stripped of any illusions, glamour or even a sense of justice. There is one funny scene toward the end and one that we've probably always wanted to see in a movie like this. Tense, terse and honest. But don't expect to be uplifted.
