watching the first 30 minutes was painfully slow and depressing. thank god for the hotness of alexander skarsgard!
only a great film like this can garnish reviews from two opposite sides of the spectrum, which makes it a brilliant film.. its obviously only appealing to a specific type of mind. its not for everyone.. which makes me conclude that in mankind .. there are retards and thinkers.
Very sad and tragic. Not bad but I would wait for tv.
Not for everyone... it's not an action movie and it's slow but it's really sad and beautiful at the same time. I love it.
A bit cheesy.
HATED this BORING film - a true waste of time!!
Worst movie of the year!!!
not worth the gas or the cab ride there
worst movie of all time!
a bit disappointing but overall worth seeing.
One of the years best films. People that hate on this film don't understand good film making. Enough said.
One the best depictions of depression I've seen, actual and metaphorical.
Watch it. Not an enjoyable viewing experience but it will creep up on you. Haunt you till you realize it actually had something to say. How many movies can do that nowadays? Or ever?
Not even Kirsten Dunst being naked could save this movie!
Stunning; great direction, great acting.
Sounded good in the magazine but it was slow and interesting in a sense, but I wouldn't call it a good movie. The way the sisters change regarding the approaching planet and how the wedding played out were aspects that made it watchable.
Best part of the movie was the end - not the ending - but the fact that it was over! Sad...
dark & depressing. I had hope for this aswell but left feeling dissatisfied
The best movie of the year.
Beautifully Shot and very well acted. It moved along too slowly for my liking.
I was not overly exited with this movie. The plot could be better developed.
Not very good at all, despite a strong performance by Durnst.
One of the most depressing and darkest movies I have ever seen. Kristen Dunst gives a spectacular performances, diggs deep into how depression can take over ones self. She deserves an Oscar for her role in this movie. I recommend it to everyone just to see once.
This movie was terrific, the opening scenes were magnificent. The acting superb ! I had no idea what was going to happen - that suspense is rarely seen these days, always so apparent ... this movie is great
the movie made me physically ill....dumb
still not sure if I liked it or not
Dunst gives a performance of a lifetime.
Fascinating surrealism, but it dragged on and on and was terribly depressing. Few people showed up for this free screening, and many, many people walked out as the movie progressed. No clapping at the end, just comments from people that they wasted their time, etc.
Not good - went to a screening of it and only about 30 ppl showed up (must have known what it was like beforehand!)
You need to be in the right mood to enjoy movie
not sure I liked this movie but I was facinated at times
Was fortunate enough to catch this at TIFF earlier this year. Beautiful but slow. Sometimes uncomfortable (as most von Trier films can be) but overall, pretty amazing.
