By giving up scenarios and props, the director sought to value the core of each character so that the viewer, stripped of the "superfluous" and "superficial", could only look at what truly matters in his film: the inhumane that "emanates" from humanity itself.
Emotionally earth-shattering and brilliantly executed; Through this wildly inventive experiment, Lars Von Trier solidifies the already-proven notion that great characters propel plot, not the other way around. Holds your attention for the entire three hours. Dogville is a town that you love to hate.
