Default Antichrist!

the new film from controversial film maker lars von trier has turned cannes critics/reporters into seething outrage. half of them are claiming it the most depraved and offensive film ever- it features a women cutting off her clit and william defoe dropping a boulder on his knob!- half the audience claiming it is a deep artistic masterpiece. von trier was attacked at the press conference some idiot writer who demanded he explain himself and why he made the film to which he responded "Im the worlds most important director.. I dont make films for the audience .. so I dont have to explain my art"


the man has the right idea and what ive seen of his work- mainly breaking the waves, he is a totally uncomprimising art house director, totally refreashing for a reletively big name to have this approach, i full encourage it 100%. and antichrist looks awesome. very striking visually and Charlotte Gainsbourg won the acting award at cannes, im hoping this film is gonna be awesome.

you do realize that this happens to millions of women as a type of female circumcision? Depending on the culture, its either a clitorectomy or a labiectomy

I haven't seen dancer in the dark since I deeply despise that ***** Bjork, but I've seen Idioterne by Trier and that was a truly great film.

I'd knock him on his ass for such unabashed arrogance too. Tell him if he didn't get real humble real quick he wouldn't be makin any more films/art.

It looks interesting, I might see it because of Defoe and to see if it's as shocking as it's billed to be.

I saw most of Dancer In The Dark (I don't know anyone who's actually sat through the whole thing) and it was semi-interesting but very uncomfortable to watch. I could see how Trier could call himself the most important director in the world considering how much some of the more pretentious critics suck his dick. I definitely don't agree with it, but I can see where the megalomania is coming from. *sigh* if only people could stop giving acclaim to movies solely for being different and quirky and would start judging them based more on how good they are...

I heard it was getting dogged at Cannes. Like people were outraged because all the controversial stuff they said was not redeemed enuff to be included. I'm gunna see it cuz Willem Dafoe always makes interesting choices.

I'm gunna see it cuz the damn thing is called AntiChrist. I've always been fascinated by the theme of good vs. evil. Especially used as a plot device. The pure unadulterated forces that may govern and emcompass our entire existence. That always has me compelled. Count me in, even though it very well be a pretentious piece of trash.
