In Order Of Disappearance
In case you’re unaware, Lars Von Trier is not the only director to regard Stellan Skarsgård as something of a talisman, as the actor has paired up with director Hans Petter Moland three times previously, most recently with "A Somewhat Gentle Man," a film we reviewed in 2011. The duo return to the Berlinale this year with competition film "In Order Of Disappearance" (aka "Kraftidioten"), which marks a deliciously mean-spirited step up from 'Gentle Man'—pretty much bringing the house down at our public screening—though that might be partly due to home crowd advantage, as the film also features regional favorite Bruno Ganz in a small, memorable role.

You certainly can’t accuse Stellan Skarsgård of lacking a work ethic. A regular on screens big and small in his native Sweden from the time he was a teenager, since his breakout international role in 1996’s “Breaking the Waves” he has averaged anywhere from three to eight films per year, mixing Swedish-language fare with blockbusters, voiceover work and TV appearances, to amass a fairly epic filmography.
