Will disgust many probably most viewers as it cements Moodysson's reputation as one of today's most daring filmmakers. The degradation inflicted on the characters in Moodyson's A Hole in My Heart is also inflicted on the viewers Manohla Dargis New York Times. It's a mystery what the Swedish filmmaker Lukas Moodysson thought he was up to in A Hole in My Heart, a movie teeming with ugly images and grotesque behavior.
