Loved it - thought provoking. If you don't like thinking then best avoided.
It`s a wonderful film. If you`re not willing to watch it then of course your not going to like it, but that`s like eating salt when you wanted sugar.
It is awful
It`s not a hollywood film so don`t expect a hollywood film. Aside from that, it`s genius! A real thought provoker.
LVT has made a brilliant movie and he had a great cast that were game enough to give him what he wants. The world needs moviemakers that hold a mirror to the world especially in these awful times that we seem to forget so easily. More of this, please.
It is a wonderful movie about human`s behavior not in US , but all over the world. On my opinion Trier is not sadist or ill-minded at all. His realism about human societies is a little more ahead from calm Europans.
Lars Von Tier is a simple minded idiot
Lars Von Tier`s Dogville is a rare work of cinema. It wasn`t intended to be beautiful, but somehow it managed to be. The acting as great, the sets- well...if it isn`t what you`d expect you`d be surprised...the first movie in a long time that lets the imagination take over...
Dogville is a masterpiece. It will stick with you and make you think. A beautiful take on the ruthlessness of human nature and violence.
I usually rate films for their after affect. It has bee a long time since a film has left such a lasting impression on me. It was a good five minutes before I could lift my jaw and close my mouth at the end of it. In one word, "BRILLIANT!"
For Lars Von Tier fans only (brilliant, not as good as Breaking the Waves, but excellent) - all others, beware...
