Critics say Viggo Mortensen’s role as the off-the-grid patriarch in Captain Fantastic is his best role yet, and the Golden Globe® nomination is our evidence! See what critics have said:
“Viggo Mortensen get the role he was born to play.” – Variety
“Viggo Mortensen is a marvel in Captain Fantastic.” – USA Today
“The movie truly belongs to Mortensen; fierce and tender and tremendously flawed, he’s fantastic.” EW.com
Director Matt Ross who won Best Director at Cannes for Captain Fantastic was also instrumental in bringing in composer Alex Somers as well as Sigur Ros‘ Jonsi (both are frequent collaborators) to create the magical sounds suited perfectly for this film. Named among the best soundtracks of the summer by Entertainment Weekly, Captain Fantastic as a whole is a stellar production via our wonderful partners at Bleecker Street Films. Congrats on a well-deserved recognition! You can tune in on Sunday night at NBC to see the Golden Globe® Awards live.
An engineer, mixer, and musician in his own right, who has collaborated with Jónsi Birgisson from Sigur Ros in Jónsi and Alex, in addition to doing extensive studio work, he strikes out on his own for this indie film and results are uniquely compelling. – The Playlist
