In Order of Disappearance

In Order of Disappearance isn't flashy, but it has a certain novelty factor just by virtue of being Norwegian, and it is interesting to watch how everything plays out.

In Order of Disappearance wasn’t supposed to be very good, but I wanted to see it anyway. I watched it on Netflix, and at first the sound didn’t sync up with the video at all, and it was really confusing. But then we figured out that was the dubbed version, and luckily we were able to change it to “Norwegian audio, English subtitles,” which was a lot better.

It was weird that his wife was so mean to him after their son died. And she left him a blank piece of paper. It was funny, but what was up with that? There was a lot of dark humor, actually, like the part when he’s about to kill himself and then Finn doesn’t even acknowledge it. I like how focused the Count was on everyone doing things politely. It was interesting that he was carrying and handing out the coffee, too. You would normally expect the lackeys to be doing that.

It was kind of interesting seeing everything. Like everything had an extra layer of interest added to it just by virtue of being Norwegian. All the snow was cool. And the Count’s house was crazy. I love that scene where he’s turned around in the chair and you think he’s just looking at the back of the chair, but there’s actually a hole in it, and it’s a face. It was funny when he got interrupted in the bathtub.

It was set up well that that one guy had a reason to betray the Count, since he killed his partner. I liked how losing a son was a theme for the whole thing. You could really feel a sense of loss, especially from Papa.

It was kind of funny that it ended with him just doing his job still. I think he’s going to have to answer for why all those people died at his site. And the snowplow killing the paraglider was a bit much. The blood in the movie in general was raspberry-colored, too, which was weird.
