Melancholia (2011)

Rated R for maybe 3 dishes of sweary time.

We finish the Month Of Bev with the Next 100 Project’s 92nd entry. This movie delves very deep into depression and suicidal thoughts, but when a movie is done so brilliantly, you can’t let  sadness get you down. Lars Von Trier is a unique artist (Dogma stickler or not) and his film really has to go down as a landmark work.

For The Record: Bev’s right that it’s “chaos reigns” in Antichrist, not “pandemonium reigns”. Also, Sunshine was released in 2007, not 2002.
