Sundance ’09: Another Gem in ‘Bronson’

Update: The film has officially been announced as part of the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. It has been awhile since I saw anything that really blew my mind, and this week we’ve already got three indie films making our front page. Check this one out for size. The film is called Bronson, which was directed by Nicolas Winding Refn. If you head over to BDTV you can chew on the official trailer, which looks insanely violent and incredibly bloody. The film is the evolutionary journey of Mickey Peterson into Britain’s most notorious and dangerous living prisoner CHARLES BRONSON. Originally sentenced to 7 years in prison for burglary, Charles Bronson has been behind bars for 34 years, 30 of which have been spent in solitary confinement. Charlie has forged an outrageous reputation through violence, hostage taking and rooftop protests to become a notorious figure in the British public’s consciousness.
