About half an hour too long but no doubt one of the most psychedelic, transgressive experiences in cinema.
Truly, truly shocking and morally despicable; if the Daily Mail were allowed to make a film this is what it would be like.
A brilliant, morally challenging fumble into a small town set in america's great depression. A hugely original piece of cinema, that challenges the way in which a set can be used in the tradition of Brecht. Von Trier's philosophical, contemplative and challenging dialogue helps create an ambiguous mood that cloaks over the town and leaves the film in your mind for days.
