Post Do we need to talk about Lords of Chaos?
So the trailer for the adaptation of 1998’s Lords of Chaos (by Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind) finally hit the interwebs. I’m sure everyone is aware of it. Is anyone seeing it/has interest in it? Do we need to talk about it, or shall we go back to our dark spaces, play RPGs, and let the grimness overtake us?

Looking forward to seeing it, myself. I know all the trve and kvlt types won't go near it but I'd like to see what Akerlund has done with it.
Someone I know saw it at Sundance last year and he enjoyed it.

I’ve heard that despite some of the drama cliches of the trailer, the death scene/s (I’m assuming Euro’s death) is quite violent, and the trailer isn’t really representative of how dark the film gets. I suppose if you get past the Americans playing Norwegians, it might be entertaining despite the supposed inaccuracies. I’m more interested in whether this has an audience outside of those with prior knowledge?

Hopefully it's better than the book...

Is it true Mayhem haven't allowed them use any of their music? How's that going to work?
Saw the trailer and the American accents threw me way off. Better than them attempting Norwegian ones, I suppose...

The book was decent until the last hundred pages or so when it just turned into a rambling repetitive mess.

Yup. Mayhem refused, but from what I know, most of the BM used in the film is incidental background music. Even if the film does show them playing live then they could play any old thing tbh and the vast majority of the audience wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

As for the accents, many Scandinavians speak with something quite similar to a US accent anyway (apparently it's down to the heavy influence of American TV and movies).

Still makes me chuckle that Varg is played by a Jewish actor. :lol:

I don't think any of the bands involved permitted use of their music. I've read a few reviews that said it was laughably bad, but they were from kvlt troo BM warriors so it's probably great.

I watched Åkerlund's movie Polar the other night. I quite enjoyed it. Loads of ultraviolence and T&A. Mads Mikkelsen. Perfectly good way to spend a couple of hours.

I was thinking more about the sensationalist aspect of it, how they seemingly made Absurd killing that kid not that big a deal.

I watched it last weekend. It's alright. There is Mayhem music in it. Also Accept, Dio, Sodom and bizarrely, Cathedral (?!). You forget about the accents after a while, the murders/suicide are fairly gruesome, the performances aren't bad (except for Varg, he's fucking shite), but the script is fairly cringey at times (although probably no stupider than what a bunch of twatty kids would actually come out with) and to be honest, they all come across as a bunch of fucking arseholes (and I imagine they were probably worse in real life). Worth a watch if you've any interest in this part of metal 'history', I suppose. I would guess your average punter will fucking laugh their bollocks off at the stupid cunts...

Just transferring Lords Of Chaos so I will watch it tonight. The book was far too long.

See, that's what I don't like hearing about it. It isn't meant to be a comedy story. There are many potential themes to explore in a story like that. If anyone walks away with the impression that they are a bunch of stupid cunts, the film is an abject failure.

Well, they kind of are/were a bunch of stupid cunts, but I agree that there certainly are many different themes (not even necessarily political) that could have been explored rather than the pretty generic story they did tell (or insert the source material into). It would definitely be interesting if it weren’t shopped to studios with far more commercial interests, and ended up in more ‘arthouse’ hands.

Enjoyed L.O.C. - I wonder when they will release the porn parody.

I mentioned this in the Film Thread, but despite the performances of the guys playing Euronymous and Dead (yeah, one of them is a Culkin but I forget which), the film was a 1 Fist wankfest.

This was the final straw, no pun intended...

PS: The 'Inner Circle' were dicks alone for slagging off Death Metal. How the fuck was Death Metal 'trendy'? It never got any mainstream recognition.

The film has already bombed.

It didn't help that it became available on Youtube and a few other sites in all its HD glory for a twenty four hour period a day or two before its official release date.

I liked it, personally.
Quite factual, although obviously includes some supposition and guesswork, as well as some deliberate Varg baiting.
