I love Lars von Trier because he provokes. I don't like all of his films but all of them have involved a participation of emotions. I come away from them with strong feelings... I might have loved the film or I may have even hated it. A filmmaker that can provide this sort of assurance is one I get excited about. I usually have to watch his films at least twice before I can discuss them and that's why it's taken so long to review Antichrist. It is his darkest story to date. While they engage in a moment of passion, a couple's infant child falls to his death from a window. Using chapters the film takes us through the emotions with the characters. From grief, pain and despair we delve deep into the emotional distress of these people and it's a dark and depressing place. Explicit, disturbing and upsetting... Antichrist is not a film you enjoy but one you can experience. I think it's one of von Trier's best and most challenging. Its a psychological horror film and is promised to confront you with its themes and graphic imagery... but.... you most definitely have to be in the mood for something heavy. I am almost finished watching his classic 8 hour horror epic "Riget" so stay tuned for that review.
