BEYOND FRIGHT Review: KLOWN FOREVER

6-KF-Caught

Very few films caught me off guard as much as 2010’s Danish comedy, KLOWN. The brainchild of stars/co-writers Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam as well as director Mikkel Nørgaard, the feature film took what was so hilarious and fun about the Television show it was based on and continually surprised its viewers with an irreverent sense […]
