  • Excerpt: Melancholia is the kind of film that on the surface seems like it’s designed to capitalize on doomsday discussions associated with the end of the Mayan Calendar in 2012; yet, deeper examination proves that only von Trier could have tackled the idea and made it seem as fresh as the beginning of the world.

  • Excerpt: Made by and, largely, about a depressive, Melancholia is perhaps the oddest film about the end of the world, mainly because it is deeply ambivalent about whether or not it would be such a bad thing. Directed by Lars von Trier (The Idiots, Dogville and Antichrist), Melancholia is a pervasive and shattering film that will hit home hard.
