Charlie Countryman—formerly the more long-winded The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman—is Fredrik Bond’s rapidly paced first feature film that, for all its stylistic glut, avoids undercutting expert performances from Shia LaBeouf, Evan Rachel Wood, and Mads Mikkelsen.

LaBeouf plays the title character, an American traveler who becomes dangerously lured into a web of Eastern Euro violence while tracking down an enigmatic crush (Evan Rachel Wood), the daughter of a man who died next to him on a flight to Romania. Charlie Countryman opens in theaters Friday, November 15th, but get a taste of the film with these 6 GIFs.

But she, of course, has a man from her past who is a hardened Romanian thug.

And he’s not so fond of this new American in his ex-wife’s life. So he kicks his ass…

For several years, sustainability has been an urgent and vigorous topic of study, debate, and organizing, as more and more filmmakers find it difficult, if not impossible, to make a living solely on the basis of their creative work.
