“I think it's important that we all try to give something to this medium, instead of just thinking about what is the most efficient way of telling a story or making an audience stay in a cinema.”

    DOGVILLE

    LARS VON TRIER Denmark, 2003

    One part Brechtian experiment, and one part send up of America, Lars von Trier imported English language stars (including Nicole Kidman) and staged a 1930s gangsters’ tale in a studio stripped of all realism but blistered with turmoil. You’ve never seen anything like this!

    BREAKING THE WAVES

    LARS VON TRIER Denmark, 1996

    From controversial director Lars von Trier comes the first entry in his Golden Heart trilogy, which was followed by The Idiots and the Palme d’Or winning Dancer in the Dark. Starring Emily Watson in an uncompromising performance, Breaking the Waves remains one of Von Trier’s finest achievements.

    THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT

    LARS VON TRIER Denmark, 2018

    A virtuosic act of defiance against his detractors, Lars Von Trier’s The House That Jack Built is a brilliant, ultra-violent portrayal of a serial killer. Starring a mesmeric Matt Dillon on terrifying form, this Dantean plunge into the mind of madness is a provocative blend of comedy and horror.

    THE IDIOTS

    LARS VON TRIER Denmark, 1998

    A controversy stormed, the Dogme 95 movement took center stage, and an angry critic got kicked out of the Cannes screening. When the dust settled, Lars von Trier was left with this poignant, boundary-pushing film, which explores the very price of provocation. Presented here in a new restoration!

    EUROPA

    LARS VON TRIER Denmark, 1991

    This early triumph by Lars von Trier, which won no less than three prizes at Cannes, is one of his most bizarre yet accessible works: a feverish retooling of film noir, an unhinged thriller, and a visually mind-blowing odyssey into a nightmare of our past.
