Two hours is a long time to point out how foolish and sexist teenage boys can be over and over again.

Lords of Chaos provokes both awe and repulsion, but not necessarily admiration for a musical form and subculture unwaveringly devoted to literalism, no matter how extreme.

Euronymous shaped the Norwegian Black Metal scene. You'd think that'd make him cool, but Åkerlund wisely doesn't buy it.

Films don't often leave me speechless but after the final credits rolled, I was so stunned and shocked that I felt like kicking a baby and running to a back alley to throw up.

Director Jonas Åkerlund handles this cruel and sad material with sensitivity. He lets you laugh at Euronymous' pretensions and his Mean Girls-style cruelties, and makes you recoil from the destruction and desecration the band promoted.

Intriguing, well-acted and impressively crafted story.
