    ★★★

    An OK thriller with an unexpected final twist. Really cemented by a very compelling performance from Luke Prael in the lead role.

    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.
