Review: Kidnapping Mr. Heineken, 2015, dir. Daniel Alfredson


“In 1983, a quintet of would-be criminal masterminds snatched Dutch businessman and Heineken International CEO Freddy Heineken under the cover of dusk and held him for ransom over the span of three weeks. Four years later, investigative journalist and crime reporter Peter R. de Vries went and penned a book about the whole dang affair, tellingly titled The Kidnapping of Alfred Heineken. And now, in 2015, Swedish filmmaker Daniel Alfredson has distilled the pages of De Vries’ tome into a feature, alternately dubbed Kidnapping Mr. Heineken or Kidnapping Freddy Heineken, depending either on whom you ask or what country you happen to be in.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
