WTF Director Lars von Trier

melancholiaDuring the last couple months, I’ve watched two movies by Director Lars von Trier and didn’t realize he’d directed them both until now. I had to look into this director after watching Antichrist. I finished watching this movie feeling sick to my stomach. Here’s what it’s about.

Having such a physical reaction to a movie, how could I not seek out more information about the person who made it. Turns out he also directed Melancholia, a film I watched back in December. After viewing it, I had stared into space for several minutes, my brain full of questions. Here’s what this one is about.

I love movies that leave you a bit angry, traumatized and/or confused! Lars von Trier has quite a talent for doing this to viewers. People either love him or hate him, and this lady loves him. Check him out and let me know your thoughts. If you like his movies, recommend something else to me. Or, confess your hatred for his movies.

  1. I, for one, Wendy, love to watch movies which make you think. I loved Melancholia and so it appears I might also enjoy Antichrist, which I have not seen. Thank you for the heads up.
