As much as I like how von Trier shot this film, does it have to take this far to prove his (or Grace's) points?
Le Fort des fous is filled with moments of ingenuity in the first two parts, some of them are among my favorite images (scenes) of the year.
As for the final segment, at first I also feel frustrated at what Mari takes us. After some thoughts, I prefer to see it as a formal exercise of unfiltered honesty instead of treating it like DVD extra features. The dichotomy of opposite styles complement with each other. It does not necessarily need to be seen separately.
