Dancer in the Dark 2000

From Amazon: Masterpiece or masquerade? Lars von Trier's digicam musical split the critics in two when it debuted at Cannes in 2000. There were those who saw it as a cynical shock-opera from a manipulative charlatan, others wept openly at its scenes of raw emotion and heart-rending intensity. There is, however, no in-between. Dancer in the Dark is that rarest of creatures, a film that dares to push viewers to the limits of their feelings.

Dancer in the Dark Movie Review by Jannika (9/27/2006)

Let me say first that I'm Danish/American. Many non-American directors can make movies that capture the essence of America so well you would never know they weren't born and raised here.
