The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day. Reigns.
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
With all the rapture stuff and Cannes giving Lars Von Trier the boot I figured what better way to spend God’s day than with an image of Von Trier on the set of Anti-Christ, a movie that is about Charlotte Gainsbourg’s evil vagina.
Chaos reigns is awesome a battle cry, Willem Dafoe is one poor, doomed bastard in this movie, a fox eats its own belly, wieners get abused, there’s a pornographic black and white opening that feels like a perfume commercial and Gainsbourg doesn’t like wearing pants in it, so Anti-Christ is kind of awesome.
Now here’s Von Trier, Dafoe and Gainsbourg talking in a room for your viewing pleasure.
Thanks again to Pat Barnett for the pic! Click to embiggen!
If you have a behind the scenes shot you’d like to submit to this column, you can email me at email@example.com.
Tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic is so cool.

Take down those fake Pics, it's an embarrassment.

does anybody else keep getting a "Sorry, we're having problems" message appear every once in a while? (This is for the whole website, not just this talkback)

...agree that both actors look like they're in character even though they're clearly talking to the director between takes. Dafoe has that confident yet thoughtful look of his character, and Charlotte has the weary look of her character. Just saying. One more thing: I enjoyed Charlotte's music album from a year or two ago. She's good.

Nice photo though.

to ever see ANTICHRIST, given what I know about it, but MELANCHOLIA has my interest. And I'm gonna say tomorrow will be a little something from TRUE ROMANCE. Tell me....am I lying?

Don't know what the deal is... it looks fine on my desktop, and fine on my phone, but on my tablet it's like some crappy stripped down version.

And while it was beautifully shot, I was left feeling really drained and down. I had a friend who watched Salo tell me he felt the same way (I haven't, and will not see Salo, so I can't judge) Dafoe and Gainsborough are brilliant no matter what they do. But no matter who you are, parent or not, the beginnig is a rough start to heavy rapids.

You KNOW that!

I was rocked by the horrifying scenario it sucked me into, but could never bear to watch it again. It's a great movie, if you've ever wanted to know what it feels like to choose an orgasm over your kid's life.

RIP Most-Irrelevant Bruce Wayne

that is all i can get out of that movie. it's not even a story as much as a dream that someone who's fucked up in the head might have. or maybe a drug induced fantasy. i don't know. but the director is a weird as fuck. i wouldn't be surprised to find out someday he had a torture chamber in his basement and was eating people.
May 23, 2011, 3 a.m. CST
And I love it. So demented and fucked up.
May 23, 2011, 3:17 a.m. CST
Sometimes you need a brush with the really unpleasant.
May 23, 2011, 3:18 a.m. CST
Female actresses sound like they are fucked up. Would love to see them have really unpleasant horrible sex for 4 hours.

every Von Trier film courts controversy of some kind. the guy revels in it. the whole banned from Cannes thing was more shocking knowing that Cannes didn't expect him to say something controversial. i hated Antichrist. not because of the shocking scenes, just a boring film. Dancer in the Dark and Breaking the waves were amazing films though. the ending to BtW was beautiful.
May 23, 2011, 7 a.m. CST
Is that a hint for "True Romance"?
May 23, 2011, 7:04 a.m. CST
Charlotte's Dad Serge once directed her in movie where she appeared fairly naked. At the time, she was about 15. He also produced her song "Lemon Incest", which is exactly as disturbing as it sounds. She later admitted it was mostly about trying to seem controversial to sell music and movies. Which I'm hoping is true, and we don't have another Polanski/Woody-type situation, but who knows. I kinda wish I didn't know any of that, but no you all must suffer with the knowledge too. Ha! Good actress though, music wasn't bad either. Off-topic: please stop with the faux obits. Not cool man. That deserves a deleted post, if not banning for repeated offenses. Seriously, not cool.
May 23, 2011, 7:36 a.m. CST
I mean that seriously. Way to turn what were seriously fucked up comments into a joke.
May 23, 2011, 8:46 a.m. CST
They each feel like an archetypical image, like something that ought to pop up again and again in folklore around the world. Like the pelican feeding its young with its own heartblood, or the ouroborous, or... or something involving an animal that ISN'T eating itself, though I'm blanking right now...

Now THAT would be cool
May 23, 2011, 8:54 a.m. CST
It's too hard to Google for news on it—I just keep hitting sites that review both movies and video games, and mention Eden in their Antichrist review. I assume it's been cancelled...?
May 23, 2011, 9:24 a.m. CST
that was my guess as well

can't quite remember the line in it - but something about Satan being the creator of the world and evil being dominant? so pretty much from there you know it's all down hill. i don't subscribe to that way of thinking, though there's certainly a LOT of suffering globally. the description of the flick as a fucked up nightmare is probably the simplest. but it's a much different affair than say david lynch where there is usually a 'moral' ending even when things are fucked up. (frank gets his in 'blue velvet'.)

A fucking mess---was my first reaction. Some flat out brilliant performances and images, an unintentionally hilarious image/sound that completely pulls you out of the film, and a last act that seems to be from a completely different film and belittles what came before.
May 23, 2011, 11:45 p.m. CST
"So I'm thinking about making this Nazi joke at some public venue, like, maybe Cannes. What do you guys think?"
May 24, 2011, 12:11 a.m. CST
Dafoe is the bad guy in this movie. Gainesbourg is his victim. He intentionally drove her mad. The movie is still a piece of shit, though.
