    The Legacy That Lars Built

    Jack and Lars and one and the same, both are ambitious neurotics who are searching for perfection and this story is a retrospective of their chosen careers. It's easy to take 'The House That Jack Built' at face value and shrug it off as a self indulgent, narcissistic, masturbatory work from Von Trier... and to a certain extent it is that but it's not without meaning.

    'The Depression Trilogy' was Von Trier at his most…

    Human Nature and Living With Depression

    There are two very important films in Lars Von Trier's filmography, the first being 'Breaking the Waves' which saw Von Trier utilize the handheld camera which would go on to be a defining factor of his work. 'Breaking the Waves' also saw Von Trier shift from fantastical, surrealist works (The Europe Trilogy) to films that were much more grounded and realistic (The Golden Heart Trilogy).

    'Breaking the Waves' and the films that proceeded it…

    No God Or Kings. Only Man.

    It's so insane to think that the witch trials actually happened... how on earth is it even possible to achieve such levels of blind idiocy and ruthless evil? 8 Million people were killed over the course of three centuries (according to this film) we really do have it easy now. The closest thing we have to being accused of being a witch is being cancelled... at least they don't burn you at the stake…

    Only Five More Left... I Made It Further Than Shima Iwashita

    There were no English subtitles and I couldn't find a plot synopsis anywhere so I had no idea what the fuck was going on... then again, 'Yakuza Ladies 8' was written by Nakajima so I doubt it would make any sense even if it had subtitles. 'Yakuza Ladies 8' was decent enough and managed to escape being the worst in the franchise... nothing will surpass 'Yakuza Ladies Decision' as…

    Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll

    In many ways 'Almost Transparent Blue' feels ahead of it's time. There is little to no narrative and it shares the same carefree, adolescent sprit as 'Kids'. Unlike 'Kids', 'Almost Transparent Blue' has a very dreamy feel to it and could take place over the course of one day or one month. In this film time has no meaning, the only thing that matters is having a good time and vibing to American rock music.

    Man's Best Friend

    Calling 'Antarctica' the saddest film I have ever seen would be accurate but wouldn't do the film justice, calling 'Antarctica' the saddest thing that I have ever experienced in my entire life would. I cried 15 times while watching 'Antarctica'... there have been family deaths that didn't hit me nearly as hard as this film did. I love animals and love dogs more than anything in the entire world, if I see a human die then I…
