Why Don't you Just Die
At the request of his spoilt, entitled girlfriend, young thug Matvey arrives at her father Andrei’s apartment with the intention of killing him. Unfortunately Andrei turns out to be a corrupt police detective and isn’t going down without a fight. The situation soon escalates into a full-scale battle involving power drills, handcuffs and shotguns as the pair battle it out in the claustrophobic space of the tiny apartment. Kirill Sokolov’s directorial debut is a splatterpunk action comedy drenched in gleefully dark Russian humour with with ironic asides, shock reversals and tricky non-linear plot swerves.
