The movie is not at all what you would think. Art thief/corporate recruiter Roger steals rare works of art to maintain his lavish lifestyle. He sizes up his targets by recruiting them for high level corporate positions, while they are on their interview, he breaks into their homes to rob them blind.
Unfortunately, he doesn’t know everything there is to know about his latest target. I was taken totally by surprise by this Norwegian film at IFFBoston 2012, and selected it as one of my favorite films of last year. Dark, thrilling, and totally unique, Headhunters is intense, and now that it is streaming on Netflix, it is not to be missed.
