What a good chance to talk a little bit about Lars Von Trier’s new film Antichrist, starring Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg. I went to a screening of it a couple of weeks ago and have yet to come up with the words to describe how I feel about the film. Mainly I just make little noises and look confused before having a flashback and cringing.
They have just released a new HD trailer which really emphasises both the beauty and terror in the movie. Check it out…
Based off this trailer, I would see the film again. It primarily focuses on the intrigue and look of the film, which were well done. The problem is it leaves out the relentless and unexplainable brutality that goes along with it.
Yes, this film is beautiful but I don’t believe that an audience needs to be tortured in order to see something pretty. But then again, I’m not one of you sick f*cks out there that like being tortured and watching people be tortured in a film. If that’s your thing, than you’re going to have the time of your life in this film.
Who out there still still wants to see this film after I warn you about the graphic genital mutilation scene?
