I haven't seen a lot of the "unfold on the screen" movies but Bekmambetov's entry certainly feels like the one to beat.
I'm afraid of the future.
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…
