Keeping up with the trend of the Apocalypse, Lars Von Trier premiered his latest mind scramble, Melancholia, at Cannes this year. The film is typical Von Trier, with its paced and dry psychological unraveling, complete internal disrobing of the characters, and high strung tension. But it also excels with its breathtaking cinematography, cosmic soundtrack, and remarkable performances by Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg. This movie will make you avoid looking at the moon for a while.
