Ratings & Reviews

  1. Isaac Ionescu's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    The mesmerizing tale of two rich white brainless mansion kids affably bowing before each other and playing with toy trucks the size of film budgets.

  2. subtonal's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

  3. Oliver Page's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    Fascinating, ultimately flawed survey of the component parts of the artistic impulse in action.

  4. Dave Wesley's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    Wonderful. Fascinating. I love that this film exists. Both directors are amazing.

  5. Hiram Molina's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

  6. Esteban Chaires's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    A great film about the passion of filmmaking.

  7. smndvdcl's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    An uncompromising cinematic experiment that influenced the future of the language of film.

  8. Egoisms's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    People unnerved by the Bombay film oughtta read Peter Singer's seminal Famine, Affluence, and Morality and his book The Life You Can Save. The vast geographical distances which separate rich from poor are ethically irrelevant. If it's perverse to eat so richly in front of the global poor, it's perverse to eat so anywhere without simultaneously trying to make such disparities a thing of the past.

  9. lina maj's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    (3.5) Enjoyed Lars von Trier the most - the wicked puppeteer and the mastermind of games.

  10. averpues's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

  11. Andrew Miller's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    My favorite Von Trier, though of course its not only his. A vein of tenderness below the snarky gamesmanship.

  12. Mar J's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

  13. antibody's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

  14. msmichel's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    Von Trier, ever the agent provocateur, cast his designs on a filmmaker he truly admired with this incredible experimentation made in collaboration with Jorgen Leth. He challenged Leth to remake his classic short 'The Perfect Human' five times abiding by obstructions Von Trier would hand out. However the brilliance of Leth's filmmaking provides the only true obstruction of Von Trier's designs. One of the decade's best

  15. EdieEmm's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    Lars Von Trier is the abusive relationship you keep finding yourself going back to. Here, he gets to embody that role, justify it, atone for it, strut arrogantly in it. Leth, meanwhile, is the foil: willingly abused, fed, nourished, mirroring the audience, coming out stronger (more justification). And the coup de grace: well, the roles are interchangeable! And so his game continues... Clever as always.

  16. Ezra Winton's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    Interesting but so ethically problematic in its bourgeoisie justifications...

  17. A-H-H-H's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    Okay. This movie is funny. The description could have used some humour.

  18. Bekriah Mawasi's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    Lars, my favorite 3ars! Best visible teacher-student confrontation I've seen on a screen.

  19. MarcusArcus's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

  20. Leandro Querido's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    Duelo de directores, duelo de humanos. Una gran película con un dejo a Fake de Orson Welles y algo de reality actual. Meritorio el rescate que hace Lars von Trier del cortometraje de Jorgen Leth. Nota al pie: todo editor debería ver la parte de Obstrucción Cuba. Un trabajo magnífico.

  21. Morse's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    Muy interesante, es un film para reflexionar, y jugar con los pensamientos y las miradas de las ideas que tenemos cada uno de nosotros.

  22. El Meyer's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    Ein Film über Menschlichkeit vs Perfektionismus. Danke.

  23. Soy La Autoridad's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    Lars pone en tono a quien sea. No podrás insensibilizarte con algo sacado de "ojo". Esta no es la excepción.

  24. Bandeira's rating of the film The Five Obstructions

    Multitude of dialogues that only art can wire up.
