I get it: study astrophysics, crack elaborate capers. In this ambitious thriller by Eugeniusz Korin, a stone-faced police officer with a scientific bent must locate a string of psychopaths and serial killers whose mysterious disappearances appear to be connected. Alexander Wolin, aka the Vulture, is no ordinary cop: he listens to classical music during stakeouts and uses a giant blackboard in his apartment to scrawl inexplicable formulas that somehow relate to his investigation. The action moves at a frenzied pace (while simultaneously taking forever), the storytelling is linear but discombobulating, and the climax falls flat. For good measure, there’s a pointless love story and a dying boy in need of a heart transplant. In Polish with subtitles.
