Antichrist, a film by Lars von Trier

At a time when mainstream cinema seems to be getting more palatable and boring, it’s fantastic that an artist is still making films that challenge and confuse. Writer and director Lars von Trier is an excellent filmmaker. The cinematography throughout this movie is phenomenal, in particular the first scene and selected close-ups. It’s also a tight script, where the tension does not abate for a moment. I’ve seen a few arthouse movies that just weren’t good enough to make it mainstream. Lars von Trier has the skills but chooses to confront, and for that reason his films will be discussed for decades, instead of months.
