I saw Valhalla Rising the other night. Wow! I've never seen such braining! And the scar tissue was excellent. Only three words of criticism; not enough pus. Let's face it, unhygienic Norsemen with all those wounds need a little pus.
Mads Mikkelsen (as One Eye) is now in my top three Cinematologist Yummy Movie Stars list. The other two are Will Smith and Sigourney Weaver, in any order.
Kriota Willberg writes, draws, needlepoints, and performs about body-oriented sciences. She teaches (or has taught) anatomy, pathology, drawing, and massage in a variety of colleges and studios littered around the country. Her blog, thecinematologist examines medical themes through the lens of Hollywood films. Willberg/Dura Mater dance and film projects include the feature film, "The Bentfootes" and the short "Sunscreen Serenade." Kriota has studied stage combat and worked as a researcher for a Hollywood screenwriter. During a twenty-odd-year career as a massage therapist she has worked on everyone from cancer patients to the New York Giants football team. She works as a massage therapist at the Bendheim Integrative Medicine Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, BUT it would be a mistake to assume her opinions reflect the views of MSKCC.
