    What Haunts Us

    ★★★

    A really sad story of a community who left a predator to run free in their midst for too long and consequences of those decisions. It's pretty bland visually but the story is really interesting and very, very sad.

    ★★★★

    This movie rules SO HARD.

    From the opening shot you know that this is the work of a master filmmaker. Plus it has something to say, says it smartly and with attitude.

    ★★★★

    I’ve liked, though not always enjoyed. Lars von Trier’s offerings over the past few years but for some reason, likely the combination of length and expectation, Melancholia escaped me. With his new film due for festival runs this winter, the time seemed ripe to catch up with his 2011 offering. Why did I wait so long?

    Undeniably beautiful, Melancholia is also my favourite of von Trier’s works. It’s his exploration of a woman suffering through depression on her wedding day…

    ★★★★

    I have a few issues with it - namely the motivation behind one of the central moments in the 3rd act and a too-long action sequence - but otherwise, it's a total lovefest.

    At one point, I was so joyously happy, I even got a little teary-eyed.
