Default DVD Review : Antichrist

I recently watched the movie, A Serious Man by the Coen brothers, and was subjected to a vicious depiction of the way that a Jewish God can smite his followers. The reason I bring this film up is because shortly after watching it, I decided to watch Lars Von Trier's newest film, Antichrist, in which I was assaulted with a depiction of Satan. Two polar opposites that somehow felt very similar (except I never saw a penis spurting blood in A Serious Man, but we'll get to that in a minute.)

Antichrist is at times a marvellous film, and at others an assault on the senses that is more akin to Two Girls One Cup. It is a movie built to challenge our very level of acceptance of what we will allow to be called art. It is vicious in a way that no film I can recollect can even come close to (it reminds me of the film, Cannibal Holocaust, a film in which the director butchered living animals and filmed every horrible second.) Yet, I would not shy away from recommending this movie for others to see, but you can sure as hell bet I won't be watching it again!

It starts with a lengthy slow motion scene of Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg making love on a snowy night while their son climbs out a window and falls to his death. Pretty dramatic and awful stuff - and that's just the beginning! From there we discover that Dafoe is a Psychologist who thinks that he can treat his own wife better then the doctors. So he begins to analyse her to help with their grief. Through this he discovers that she is terrified of a cabin in the woods that they own and that she used to frequent with their son while working on her thesis. They decide to travel to the cabin to help cure her of her fears - an odd decision considering they are dealing with grief, but I'm no psychology major.

It is on the trip to the cabin that we first discover the awful nature of this film. Things begin to happen, whether they are visions or reality is left for you to wonder, that seem to mock the grief that the couple is experiencing. I don't want to give away anything about the plot of this film, so all I will say is that you are going to be questioning what the hell is happening (are they going crazy) at this cabin. At a certain point, the true evil of this film rears its ugly head, and when it does, things go from disturbing to, "Holy Fuck I Can't Watch This Shit Anymore!"

There are scenes in this film that, once seen, cannot be UNseen. It is a film that is only for the most steadfast stomachs - but it is a film that I think is worth seeing. It is the most horrific film I've seen in years - Freddy and Jason have got NOTHING on this film. By the end, you will be left questioning the motives of the director. As I pondered the conclusion, I decided that the point of it all was that:
'Man is the only 100% unnatural creature. Woman is 50/50, thus effected by nature's will.'

If you see this film, let me know what you think. But, if you DO decide to see it, don't say I didn't warn you!!

I just want to see fake bouncing tits, not the surgical scars that put them there.

Oh I forgot to mention that I finally finished it and I just have to say holy shit that was so incredibly offensive. I didn't masturbate for like a week or two after that movie because of the shit I saw. And that is no easy feat. On one end thank you for showing it to me and at the same time your a dick for telling me about it. Overall though it was very artistic

Watched it right after I heard about it on the Podcast. The only way I can describe it is "The best movie I've ever hated." Von Triere has a FUCKED UP mind.
