Essential Killing (2010)

Jerzy Skolimowski directs Vincent Gallo, Emmanuelle Seigner and Klaudia Kaca in this arthouse actioner where a Taliban terrorist escapes redaction from the US forces in the Russian wastelands.

Surprisingly spectacular action for a lower budget film as Gallo silently fights his way through the freezing cold barefoot. There is minimal dialogue and plot… this way the actor preserves some sympathy as he endures in an unforgiving environment. Not a pleasant watch and quite repetitive.
