Film Review: VIDEOMAN (a.k.a. Videomannen) (2018)


VIDEOMAN (a.k.a. Videomannen) **** Sweden 2018 Dir: Kristian A. Soderstrom. 94 mins

A unique, disarming love story recommended to anyone who has ever had a debate about whether Rosalba Neri’s enthusiastic fingering in SLAUGHTER HOTEL was body-doubled. Italian immigrant Stefan Sauk once ran the best video store in Sweden (his description), peddling what he lovingly calls “fat shiny boxes with animated covers”. Lamenting the “digital plague” of the 21st century, he faces eviction, likening his outsider status to King Kong in New York. A change in fortune emerges when a mysterious, notorious collector known as “Faceless” offers 10,000 Euros for his recently acquired rare tape of Fulci’s ZOMBIE.
