Trailer: The Golden Glove (German: Der Goldene Handschuh) (Dir: Fatih Akin) is an adaptation of Heinz Strunk’s eponymous novel and tells the story of the real-life German serial killer Fritz Honka who murdered four women between 1970 and 1975 and hid the parts of dead bodies in his apartment. The Golden Glove is named after the pub in the red-light district of Hamburg where the defaced alcoholic Honka met his victims. It's been getting mixed reviews from critics (clearly because of it's subject matter) but I caught this theatrically last night and thought it was excellent, although it's far from enjoyable seeing as it's absolutely brutal, disturbing, and just reeks of ugliness and human suffering. This is the film The House That Jack Built wanted to be, but wasn't (for me), and hasn't really been nailed down since Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. It's harsh, mean-spirited, but extremely well-made featuring some amazing production design, strong performances, and despite the inhumanity on display there are some surprising moments of dark comedy that had me (and the rest of the audience) laughing out loud. Not for the faint of heart but highly recommended!
