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!

Tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic is so cool.

    Still haven't gotten around to see it

    by darksith

    And want to see Melancholia as well

    Hey Quint

    by darth_hideous

    Could you tell Harry to delete those embarrassing posts with fake art (catwoman & spiderman)???

    May the sith rule the talkback

    Agree with Darth Hideous....

    by Fritzlorrerains

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

    Evil vagina....

    by DepressedDonkey

    Aren't they all?

  • May 22, 2011, 9:44 p.m. CST

    I love that he's not even acknowledging

    by darksith

    either of the fake posts

  • May 22, 2011, 9:53 p.m. CST

    By the way...

    by darksith

    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)

  • May 22, 2011, 10:13 p.m. CST

    Anyone else that has seen the movie...

    by HansBubi

    ...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.

    "Von Trier-ier" wishes he was Bergman

    by MooseMalloy

    Nice photo though.

    darthsith -- yes

    by ATARI

    I have gotten that message twice today.

    Willem Defoe once beat Harvey Keitel ...

    Willem Defoe once beat Harvey Keitel ...

    by nico_laos

    ... In the national "I Know You Don't Want to See Me Naked, But Here I Am" contest. It was a close-call, as you would expect.

  • May 22, 2011, 10:45 p.m. CST

    And I meant 'Dafoe.'

    I have no desire

    by kermit_the_fraud

    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 I lying?

    Anti-christ has no redeeming value

    by FrodoFraggins

  • 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.

  • May 23, 2011, 12:21 a.m. CST

    I did see this movie...

    by solitaire

    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!

    much like Dancer in the Dark

    by smackfu

    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.

    antichrist was a fucked up nightmare

    by antonphd

    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

    I've seen this movie twice

    by Sanyi

    And I love it. So demented and fucked up.

  • Sometimes you need a brush with the really unpleasant.

  • Female actresses sound like they are fucked up. Would love to see them have really unpleasant horrible sex for 4 hours.

    courts controversy.

    by wiseguy100

    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.

    Tomorrows BTS

    by 24200124

    Is that a hint for "True Romance"?

    Fun fact

    by solvseus

    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

    Fuck you, Quint. All of my respect for you is gone now.

    by Proman1984

    I mean that seriously. Way to turn what were seriously fucked up comments into a joke.

  • May 23, 2011, 8:46 a.m. CST

    The Three Beggars are such amazing images

    by spacehog

    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...

  • May 23, 2011, 8:53 a.m. CST

    Was hoping it was BTS pic of the fox

    by Fat and Curious

    Now THAT would be cool

  • May 23, 2011, 8:54 a.m. CST

    Oh, and what happened with sequel "Eden" video game?

    by spacehog

    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

    TRUE ROMANCE tomorrow

    by ShiftyEyedDog

    that was my guess as well

  • May 23, 2011, 10:20 a.m. CST

    definitely a troubling flick

    by smudgewhat

    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'.)

    When did Amy Winehouse bed Defoe?

  • May 23, 2011, 9:13 p.m. CST

    I'll have to watch it again before I judge it

    by proevad

    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 24, 2011, 12:11 a.m. CST

    I think Quint is mistaken here

    by mullymt

    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.

  • July 7, 2011, 5:23 p.m. CST

    I know mullymt is mistaken here

    by golden tribw

    so what's the point?
