Lars Von Trier, acclaimed filmmaker (and director responsible for making Bjork cry) tends to make films that are so incredible that you only want to sit through them once. Sorry film buffs, his work is amazing, but it’s so gad-nammed depressing. I own a copy of his 2003 film Dogville, starring Nicole Kidman, and I’ve suceessfulyl watched it once. I’ve started it 10 times, but I keep on digging my fingernails into my palms and shouting, so I usually end up watching something a little easier on the senses, like A Clockwork Orange or Apocalypse Now.
In the meantime, check out Dogville’s credits, with music by David Bowie set to some uplifting pictures of early 1900s America. USA! USA!
