Movie Review by Jesse
December 14th, 2006

Björk is amazing!

When I first heard of this movie, it was in 2001 upon its DVD release. I was sketchy about watching it for two reasons. I was only 11 years old and I wouldn't have appreciated it to its full extent and it seemed to be boring. Now, 5 years later, I have gathered my negative opinions about this film and Björk and thrown them away. I watched this with an open mind and was utterly shocked at how visually stunning and brilliant this movie was. It's the 2nd best film of 2000. It's very underrated and should not even be compared to other films that year like Gladiator and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. This film surpasses most films in its genre. The performance by Björk is not only Oscar-worthy, but is probably one of the most in-character performances I have ever seen. She was absolutely phenomenal. Catherine Deneuve has always been one of my favourite foreign actresses and her supporting role made the film that much better. Director Lars von Trier always knows how to make a movie. Ever since I saw Dogville, I have been watching his movies and loving them. I will remember this movie as one of the best ever. I am disappointed in myself for not watching this until now and I suggest this film to everyone and anyone. One hundred percent masterpiece.
