After grabbing the Best Actor award at Cannes Film Festival back in 2012 for The Hunt, Mads Mikkelsen returned last year for the 16th-century tale Michael Kohlhaas.

His films, including a plethora now available in a stunningly thorough Criterion set, take on the esoteric sides of America, from bluegrass musicians to the wonders of polka to the taste of Creole cooking. These […]
