Russell Crowe to Direct Bill Hicks Biopic | Collider
Probably not going to make Adgy happy. Sorry...I actually think it's forgotten amidst the shenanigans that Crowe is very talented. Not sure as a director, but he does seem to have some passion for the project.
A Little Like Therapy: Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam on Klown | CraveOnline
trust me...you guys NEED to see this. Danish Hangover with just TONS of inappropriate laughs involving weenus. Graphic and disturbing, yet hilarious. Not for everyone, and I mean that in the best way.
Klown Is the Funniest Movie of the Year | CHUD.com
You have to see Klown. You need to see Klown. The Danish import was the funniest movie I saw in 2011, and it is shaping up to be the funniest movie of 2012 too. I haven’t talked with a single person who saw it at Fantastic Fest last year that hasn’t agreed with me. And now, finally, Klown is coming to theaters in New York, Los Angeles, Austin, and VOD everywhere else, on July 27. I like to think that the kind of person who reads CHUD isn’t afraid of subtitles, but I also know I’m wrong. I know you’re lurking out there, and you probably already got a sinking feeling in your stomach when you saw that confusing ‘v’ in the poster above. I know you think subtitles are a chore (cause, hey, sometimes they can be). But if you only suck it up once this year, this is the moment for you. This isn’t some fruity arthouse flick or depressing message film — this is a balls-out riot.
Is there any chance that this Klown is from outer space?
this just in...one week run @ Cinefamily. Adgy, you should make the trip for this'un.

“HANDS DOWN THE FUNNIEST FILM OF THE YEAR...Plays like a superior, and way grosser, version of ‘The Hangover’." — Aaron Hillis, The Village Voice
In a giddy Scandinavian NC-17-flavored take on “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, Klown (based upon the popular long-running TV show of the same name) follows two wildly inappropriate friends (internationaly celebrated comedians Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen) as they run amok through the Danish countryside, plowing through social taboos and unspeakable debaucheries. Our odd-couple pals have opposing agendas for their upcoming camping trip: Frank kidnaps his nephew in a thick-headed attempt to prove his fatherhood potential, while Casper is determined to visit a mysterious world-renowned brothel as the final stop on his “Tour de Pussy.” As these confrontational, consistently unpredictable Dogme-95-meets-the-Farrelly-Brothers plotlines collide, Klown will leave you hurting from nonstop laugh fits, and genuinely shocked by several denouements you’ll never have seen coming. When we had a special one-off screening of Klown a few months ago, it received some of the most prolonged, intense outbursts of audience laughter we’ve EVER clocked; come be a historic part of this genially depraved comedy phenomenon!
Dir Mikkel Norgaard, 2010, 35mm, 89 min.
Review: 'Klown' Flirts With The Darkness That American Grossout Comedies Barely Acknowledge | The Playlist
I really hope I can make it to one of those screenings...There’s a chance you got away with bringing your mother or father to one of the bawdy “The Hangover” films, with their boys-club jokes regarding sex, drugs, alcohol and homophobia. You’re probably not going to be able to pull off the same stunt with “Klown,” which takes the formula of upper middle class men behaving badly to increasingly disturbed, disgusting places. Of course, it’s because of the film’s casually profane tone and commitment to pushing the boundaries of taste and acceptability that makes “Klown” a step above “The Hangover,” a lack of fear towards the lawlessness with which those films only flirt.
