In Praise of Von Trier-ian Excess, Or: Someday, You Will Ache Like I Ache


A lot of people point to Antichrist as supposedly irrefutable evidence of von Trier’s misogyny; I wish I could just go with the flow there and agree with most people, but the thing is, I can’t. In terms of Feelings, I find almost too much meaning in this film, and sort of identify with this woman who outright feels so much, and displays those feelings—no matter how ugly, weird and dangerous—in increasingly intense ways.


Relevant to my interests! One of my 2012 movies I watched that I need to talk about is Breaking the Waves, actually.
