I saw Vivre sa vie - one of my very favorite films - after having seen Dogville and described it to my friend who hadn't seen it as, among other things, the narrative/stylistic blueprint for Dogville.  I'm glad I'm not the only one who made the connection.

If this turns out to be one of the cases where you get a couple hundred "I noticed it too"-replies, then I figure I'll just chime in early and not be one of the slow guys.

I noticed it too.

I'd like to remind everybody that you can vote ANY film from 2004 as the BEST FILM for the XIXAX AWARDS.

Couldn't think of a good thread to put this in.. so I chose this one.. DOGVILLE.. at random.

Thanks.

Yes, ANY film.  Regardless if it was an animated one, or one about superheroes.  

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

How was this overlooked at the Oscars??

If nothing else, how the fuck did they miss Kidman's performance in it? Best performance of the year.

Is the direction Oscar only about camera-movements? How about directing actors? Von Trier did something amazing in this film.

I certainly wasn't expecting it to be nominated for any Oscars just because the Academy hates unique and different movies. If it was up to me, it would've been up for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, etc...

The Academy didn't shun Dogville because it hates unique films. It shunned it because it wasn't very good.
Well, I've got news for you pal, you ain't leadin' but two things: Jack and shit . . . and Jack just left town.
