The Searchers

15 yrs 118 minutes 1993 4.5

This classic Swedish cult film shook Sweden when it premiered in 1993 and once again raised the debate about censorship in Swedish films after several violent scenes were censored. The film depicts Jocke, Gurra, Andy, and Ray, who in seek an identity in Stockholm's underground, filled with drugs, racism, crime and death. As the film celebrates its 25 years anniversary in 2018, Jacob Lundström writes in DN that "looking back, The Searchers are more noteworthy than most of the Swedish films from the 90's." He continues: "Daniel Fridell and Peter Cartrier's debut film is no forgotten masterpiece, but it's a colorful collapse of the system that makes the Swedish film of today appear provocatively well-behaved in comparison.”
