New MELANCHOLIA Domestic Theatrical Trailer!
Lars Von Trier and Fantastic Fest have a rich history together, and it's only right that his new film, MELANCHOLIA, play there. I can't wait to see it. The cinematography looks amazing, and this is certainly not a film out of his Dogme '95 aesthetic, if the trailer is any indication. The new U.S. trailer came out today, and it looks gorgeous:
Will this be the film that gets Von Trier serious mainstream box office? Doubtful. But he can keep doing what he's doing, and I'll be happy. Nordling, out.

I'm tired of paying to see movies at the theater and having to sit through 30 min of commercials before the film. So I'll just download this for free at some point..looks interesting.

And it was "Antichrist," of course. Now I'm just flat out scared of the man and everything he produces. I do randomly shout "chaos reigns!" at inappropriate times, though, like in church and at the dinner table. actually, I don't go to church and I don't eat dinner at the table. I really only yell "chaos reigns" when I hit someone with a turtle shell in mario kart. =(

It's taking forever to come out since I first saw the redband trailer for it.

I like the other trailer - the one where Dunst gets her norms out... That trailer made me feel all warm and tingly in the trouser area...

I dont know if he means to question the notion of love in the most nihilistic sense (as in it doesnt exist) or if we should realize true love only after we've questioned it to that extent.

..brings back a vivid dream I had once. hmmm
Sept. 2, 2011, 8:41 p.m. CST
liked it, but not as much as antichrist personally. some smart ideas on surface and underneath typical of von trier but just found it a less compelling watch overall. also personally, i was a little disappointed with the destructive moments which were a little too understated and surreal for the dramatic impact i was hoping for. the idea of the ending was better then the execution IMO. just saying.

might be thinking of another movie with a similar title, because I believe Von Trier's "Melancholia" didn't even begin filming until September of 2010. couldn't have been released years ago, anywhere.

Really looking forward to this, times like this make me glad we have a little art house theatre in my town because I'm sure our main cinema is too chickenshit to carry a Lars Von Trier film. Anyone who avoids this because Von Trier babbled about understanding Hitler needs to have their vag checked for sand. He obviously had an innocuous point buried in there somewhere that probably would have taken him 10 full minutes to get to if uninterrupted, if he meant the he understands why he killed the Jews I'm pretty sure he'd be smart enough not to express it at a fucking press conference. When Werner Hertzog was on the Colbert Report, he sounded stark raving mad, to the point where Colbert said he wanted to party with him. If you watch some of their interviews it will become very clear that they are frequently high and extremely unsuccessful at conveying their ideas in English.

I liked the parts with the monkeys. Andy Serkis blah blah brilliant blah. I didn't cry at my fathers funeral but that goddamned monkey got me twice. You WILL believe James Franco is a brilliant scientist. Bravo, maestro.

Ohhh Artsey Fartsy, Ohhh lots of undertones and hidden meanings...Blah blah, Arthouse = Shithouse imo.

Don't worry, I am sure Michael Bay is cooking up something you will love!
Sept. 3, 2011, 9:21 a.m. CST
I'm with you, there's nothing I hate more than a film with depth that actually makes me see a different perspective or think about something. I mean hell, if I wanted to think I'd read a book amirite? In the interest of us bonding further, I would like to know if you own any clothing with images of Dale Earnhardt on it?

I know she has a pretty neck. BTW they've re-dubbed the bit where electricity comes out of her fingers. Eric Northman now says "Noooooo!"

types of movies: esoteric, intentionally polarizing arthouse cinema, and meaningless explosions sprinkled with corny, low-brow humor. Maybe some filmmaker, someday, will create a movie that is . . . hold on, because I know this is going to sound crazy . . . a movie that is both intelligent, well-scripted, well-acted, AND earnestly entertaining where you can leave the theater happy instead of depressed. I know, I know, pipe dreams. In reality, you either like the style of movies like Funny Games, or you like G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Gosh, though, imagine if there were any movies somewhere in the middle of that spectrum! Too bad.

I feel sad for you that you don't feel you have that in your life. Recently, I thought Source Code fit that bill.

Oops, sorry, wrong talkback.

I thought I was being over-the-top, but apparently was being a little too dry. My point being: whenever someone calls out a pretentious movie for pretending to have more meaning and import than it truly has, some talkbackers' reaction is "Well, have fun with your Bayformers 'splosions!" Fallacy of dilemma. If someone hurts their feelings by laughing at some boring, soaked-in-hopelessness (for hopelessness' sake, of course) movie, the reaction is to assume -- against all logic -- that they must love LCD Michael Bay shit. As if movies that are well-made AND enjoyable (like L.A. Confidential, Gladiator, Jaws, LOTR, The Departed, Eastern Promises, imo) simply can't exist.

Unnecessary exclamation point! Unnecessary exclamation point! Unnecessary exclamation point! Unnecessary exclamation point! Unnecessary exclamation point! Unnecessary exclamation point! Unnecessary exclamation point! Unnecessary exclamation point! Unnecessary exclamation point! Unnecessary exclamation point! Unnecessary exclamation point! Unnecessary exclamation point! Unnecessary exclamation point! Unnecessary exclamation point! Fuck Von Trier. If you've seen any of his movies, and you want to see this one, be my guest. There's no talking sense to the senseless.

Seriously, what's the other one?!?! I must know!!
Sept. 3, 2011, 8:05 p.m. CST
Like his stuff or hate it, the dude's an artist. Hes not interested in broad commercial success, so he has no incentive to make his movies according to a template. Again, im not commenting on the quality of his product, but I think one has to acknowledge it as legitimate artistic expression. I say good for him.
Sept. 4, 2011, 4:24 a.m. CST
The other one is called ANOTHER EARTH.
Sept. 4, 2011, 3:40 p.m. CST
I don't really care for Trier. He tries real hard to become the next Polansky or Lynch, but ends up as the Michael Bay of psychological thrillers ("Shocking" setpieces stringed by Freud 101 fluff). Still, I'm sure his followers blew their wads when they saw Tarkovski's name appear at the end credits of Antichrist (Which wasn't surprising at all, since some of the nature shots seemingly where digitally tweaked to ape some of Solaris' images, and the soundtrack sounded almost as if it was lifted from that movie).

Doppelganger again! (Voyage to the Far Side of the Sun)
Sept. 4, 2011, 10:36 p.m. CST
I gotta see this. And yeah I pay no attention to what he says in public, between the fact that he loves provoking people (just go see, o I dunno, ANY of his films) and that he was punch drunk and speaking in a language not his own I'm going to give him a pass. <p> <p> This thing looks absolutely gorgeous, and I haven't seen anything by him that at least didn't leave me still thinking when I left the theater, outraged or no.
Sept. 5, 2011, 9:14 a.m. CST
Not really, I actually don't know. I just hate his films. They are pretentious bullshit. But if they have titties, I might watch.

As a certified sci-fi dreamer the idea of another world smashing into us is kind of delicious. As this looks unpredictable that alone may be reason to see it. 99% of film (all art, actually) is unoriginal poop. So that even an interesting failure is a win. But I hope this is nice and strange.
