I saw it some years ago, it's great. It sits up there with the best when it comes to horror films. There are many dvd editions out there, both regions, you just have to look.

Dogville Confessions.

if anyone has the chance to see this documentary,  see it right away. Not only it's brilliantly shot and edited , but it gives you a decent insight to what working with Lars Trier might be, without gloryfing him. There is a bit, where Ben Gazara (probably the most pissed-off actor in the set) is in the confession booth and  he mimmicks a traditional Catholic confession and then says something like "Blessed me father , for I have sinned. I haven't had a confession since 5 years  but I promise this is the last time I'll work with an insane director".
context, context, context.

Anybody know if/when Epidemic and Zentropa will be on dvd?
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Man, this sounds great! Is it an extra on the DVD? I didn't have a chance to watch anything but the movie when I rented it, and the menus were all in a different language, so I couldn't tell what anything was. I need to learn a new language or to. But anyway, this is a making-of doc that I MUST see. What's the interaction with Nicole like?

for a while i thought Zentropa is a horror. It had such dark atmosphere and so suggestive. With von Trier's films i have love/hate relationship - i love them because they are so good, but i hate them because they are so depressing.

is the element of crime criterion dvd very bare bones aside from the transfer? I love this movie and was thinking about getting it, but I already have a worn out vhs copy that suits me fine if the dvd release is just the movie with a great transfer.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Do you know how he write? Maybe from an article or something.

Does he write in danish and get translated or does he write in english?

He never travels so I guess his english isn't the best.


I'm not very Von Tried literate...
