  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Epidemic

    Un style hors du commun pour un film "mesmerisant" de haut niveau... www.cinefiches.com

  2. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Epidemic

    The Europa trilogy: Europa > Epidemic, The Element of Crime

  3. Kerem Sadi Ekiz's rating of the film Epidemic

    I cannot help myself to love his movies even with not so great ones like Epidemic. Acting at the end is impressive.

  4. Mauro Pagano's rating of the film Epidemic

  5. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Epidemic

    On one level, a self-aware meta-narrative about screenwriting & the artificial nature of cinema. On another, a film about the decline of post-war Europe, where references to the black death evoke everything from World War II, to Capitalism, to the outbreak of AIDS. Finally, a film about Trier's own perspective as a latent idealist proliferating the kind of bleak nihilism he's supposedly fighting against. Brilliant.

  6. jpmurphy1's rating of the film Epidemic

    Already contains many of the elements Lars Von Trier will continue to explore in later films but lacks some of the later films coherence and finish. An indicator of what was to come and certainly worth a watch for this alone.

  9. EdieEmm's rating of the film Epidemic

    Well there goes my "Remember that time Lars Von Trier had a sense of humour?" joke... Actually, legitimately, funny (and not even at the expense of humanity) and only a little bit facetious. The black and white cinematography is pretty damn magnificent. And the closing song is hilarious. Who'd've guessed?

  10. cansu.arslan.13@hotmail.com's rating of the film Epidemic

    Lars Von Trier herzaman ki gibi insanı tüm film belli bir gerginlikte tutup, sonunda o gerginliği katlayarak ortaya mükemmel bir iş çıkarmış.

  11. andraberila's rating of the film Epidemic

    Very intense. A must see from my opinion, but prepare to become paranoid after seeing the movie.

  12. msmichel's rating of the film Epidemic

    Von Trier's b&w hybrid of thriller, horror film and behind the scenes picture is hardly successful as any of the above. Was the sole entry in his filmography I hadn't seen and probably my least favourite. Takes a long time in getting to where its going with only the final reel really having any memorable moments. Feels very much like a first feature which it certainly isn't (the masterful 'Element of Crime' was).

  13. CornelioDiaz's rating of the film Epidemic

    Historia delirante de los alcances de la ficción (ademas de ejemplo de cómo contar algo con bajo presupuesto).

  14. etblikk's rating of the film Epidemic

    Fantastisk underholdene meta tull!

  15. Harry Rossi's rating of the film Epidemic

    Probably the only Von Trier film I didn't really like. I mean it was ok, but the story felt too amateurish, focused more on trying to be clever than anything else. Which is a shame cause the b&w cinematography was astounding and it was really fun to see Von Trier act, playing himself. A lot of people here are mentioning this but it wasn't nearly as good as The Element Crime was, which is strange. Glad I saw it.

  16. Pál's rating of the film Epidemic

    This structure laid bare Trier's directorial method of putting in whatever comes into his mind: the film in the film was as kitch as you can get, and the ending was also a cheap-but-forceful gore fest. I really liked the closing song with funny lyrics and Tannhäuser melodies in synth pop. But the greatest part was how Lars and Niels acted out sublimating a shitty situation into their work.

  17. Carambotti's rating of the film Epidemic

  18. Jugend21's rating of the film Epidemic

    The use of the tannhauser overture is great, and Niles vorsel is a surprisingly good actor

  19. bambleice's rating of the film Epidemic

    Need to watch again. Liked but didn't love this though I do love how self indulgent Von Trier is.

  21. A-N-T-O-I-N-E's rating of the film Epidemic

  22. Michael Convery's rating of the film Epidemic

    It's strange that Trier's first film was a near-masterpiece while his second film felt like an above-average student film by some college kids who are obsessed with meta-fiction and had just seen Clerks.

  23. sfcugura's rating of the film Epidemic

  24. Francisco R.'s rating of the film Epidemic

    The ideas are less sophisticated than his incredibly ambitious debut, which is not a bad thing at all since I really liked this combination of the buddy comedy and horror. There is an enjoyable film-student feel to it with the usual cleverness, humor and strange stylistic choices. The performances by Von Trier and Vorsel playing themselves are compelling and definitely worth mentioning.
