1.3 The Haircut

The Story

Getting a haircut is an intimate experience and it’s challenging to find someone you can trust. This story is about Bernardo, an old Italian barber who forced me into an existential crisis during a haircut.

Paul's Pick

Trapped is about a remote town in Iceland where a police detective desperately tries to solve a murder as a powerful storm descends and threatens to cut them off from the mainland. Produced in Iceland and currently showing on Netflix, Trapped is another entry into my obsession with European crime dramas. These shows take their time, often with shots of solitary characters brooding about what is going on. Trapped has an inventive take on the genre and will chill you to the bone, and not just because there’s a lot of snow.
