    Why on earth does my country think we need another version of In Order of Disappearance ??
    First, it’s a new film, not something 20 years old. Even then, how many good films like this need to be remade? This is a waste of resources. Stellan is stellar and the film is pitch perfect as is. Are people just too lazy to read subtitles? American film and tv are so lame, just about everything I watch has subtitles. American absurdity, waste and greed at its best. So prevalent at this abysmal time in our history.?
