For such a small country Iceland doesn't half produce some talent and this is another example of what they can teach the rest of us. This is based on actual events and takes us back to the heady days of 1999, just before all the computers were going to fall over in 2000. It tells the story of Stebbi or `Psycho Stebbi' as he soon gets nicknamed (played by up and coming Thor Kristjansson (`Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre'). He gets into trouble with the law and at the police station he runs into an old chum in the shape of shaven headed Toti (played by the guy with a name that rolls of the tongue - Johannes Haukur Johanesson ). Well Toti says he has a lawyer that is so great he can get him off the rap. So when Stebbi calls he says he will put him in touch for a small favour, a bit of mutual back scratching as it were.

Once the nature of said favour is made clear Stebbi starts to get cold feet, but they soon warm up again. Only then Toti gives him some advice in `self help' in taking internal anger and externalising it. Sadly Stebbi takes this advice to heart and soon earns the nick name of Psycho.

It is not long before he is drawn into the world of underground drug dealing, sex and crime.... and violence. There is also a love interest in the very easy on the eye, Dragny (Maria Birta who was in the excellent `Jitters') who has a thing for Stebbi and likes putting stuff up her nose- charming.

This is a full on assault on the senses and whilst the violence is not gratuitous it is very up front and quite nasty at times, we also have a fair bit of `getting it on' and not always when one party is ready. Plenty of drug use and some very Anglo Saxon language, any humour is incidental.

the film is way better than what's portrayed as 'skinhead / nazi' and is a clever & probably reflective view of an island culture in the modern day. would readily recommend this film - even with the dubbing. I'd be very surprised if an English language remake could capture the raw atmosphere in this in what does feel like a true 'true story'

Like another Icelandic film "City State", this is another take on the Reykjavik's drug scene. Unfortunately both films suffer from the the same problems ie a bright start but ultimately let down by the usual cliche's of this genre.

So the main character Stebbi is a slacker who is facing time behind bars for an assault during a night out. He runs into an old school friend, Toti who introduces him to the world of drugs in Iceland's capital city. Thus begins an eventual downward spiral for Stebbi due to the excessive lifestyle on drugs and thinking you are bigger than what you truely are. Another old friend of Toti's shows up on the scene and takes control of this collective and Reykjavik's drug empire. The film is set during the countdown to the year 2000 and whilst the film stays with the general feel of the time, the drug use and arrogance of the group begins to get tiresome and boring. Its only a matter of time before everything falls apart.

So during a house party of indulgence, through a couple of events Stebbi comes to realize that he needs to wise up and get out while the going is good. Thus a string of events take place which bring the film to the conclusion and not a moment too soon. The film starts on a solid base but starts to wane and uses the usual cliche's and formula to reach its conclusion.

A gritty film about a group of psychotic 'friends' dealing drugs in Reykjavik. A fair degree of sex and violence but not over the top for these days. Moderate pace. Don't watch this expecting wall to wall violence and car chases. It's a pretty simple storyline but one that is well executed. Well worth a watch. As usual, make sure you get the version with subtitles as dubbing totally transforms a film (and not normally for the better).
