Shit, that reminds mesmv1172 said:Melancholia
The movie is about rich people who are so rich they no longer feel the need to talk to each other and as all feel alienated/disgruntled/not satisfied with pretty much anything, and with the focus on the illusion of something deeper doesn't even come to the conclusion that these people are all just causing their own issues via their own self interest, its just life is hard when you've got everything you could want combined with no principles and terribly out of whack priorities.
Any other deeper meaning/artistry/etc is a smoke-screen to make it seem more complex than it is. Pretty sure that it has the high-minded positive reviews because the smoke screen confused people, they knew they didn't get it, and so made stuff up to seem like they actually got it. It is the worst movie I have ever watched. I will never watch another movie by Lars von Trier nor trust the movie advice of anyone who liked that overly long pointless piece of crap.
Nymphomaniac, another Lars Von Trier film
At one point in the movie, the protagonist says something like"No man is incorruptible", and the movie ends with the (asexual virgin)dude who picked her up from the street and nursed her throughout the movie trying to rape her, right after a scene where she said he was her only real friend
It makes no fucking sense, i was liking the movie until that point, but it completely ruined the movie
