"Unfortunately, people don’t like reading subtitles. A story that is made in the Scandinavian language, no matter how good it is, is going to have a limited audience. It has been done before, like with "Insomnia", for instance. I was in the remake of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" that David Fincher did, which I think was very good. The problem is when a remake dilutes the material and sort of cuts out everything that is edgy or controversial or dangerous. That’s sad. It has to do with the money invested in a film. Bankers are really afraid to lose their money. But Liam Neeson is supposed to play my role, and he’s very good." Actor Stellan Skarsgard on his film "In Order of Disappearance"

Occasionally, I come across a foreign language film in which the subtitles are a distraction. I watched a Spanish language movie recently that had subtitles filled with grammatical errors and misspellings. The majority of the time, however, subtitles do an excellent job of conveying the tone and meaning of the dialogue. (There is an enlightening blog post on TranslationEngland.com written by a subtitler that explains the difficulties of the job.) Also, the brain adjusts so quickly to watching a film this way that it requires very little effort.

It's unfortunate for Stellan Skarsgard's career that Americans are so averse to watching subtitled films. He has been one of my favorite actors since 1997's "Insomnia". In 2017, I'm looking forward to the release of "Borg/McEnroe", in which Skarsgard plays Bjorn Borg's legendary coach Lennart Bergelin. Borg's teenage son Leo is also in the film, playing his father as a young man. Leo resembles his father and is an excellent tennis player, as well. Bjorn Borg visited the set to observe Leo, and it must have been an odd feeling to see his life being replayed in front of his eyes. There is a photo on IMDb of Shia LaBeouf as John McEnroe and Sverrir Gudnason as Borg if you want a preview.

Tomorrow night is the Golden Globe Awards ceremony, hosted by Jimmy Fallon. There are no American women nominated in the Best Director feature film category. There are, however, two female filmmakers nominated in the foreign language category; Houda Benyamina, writer-director of "Divines", and Maren Ade, writer-director of"Toni Erdmann". "Divines" is currently streaming on Netflix and "Toni Erdmann" is playing in theaters.

Here's the latest article from the Drama Movies site at BellaOnline.com.

In Order of Disappearance Film Review
A typical revenge thriller is the cinematic equivalent of fast food: comforting, predictable, and instantly forgettable. “In Order of Disappearance”, a violent winter tale set amidst endless expanses of white, is more substantial fare.
