The Kingdom concludes with one of the most wild cliffhanger endings outside the final 'Twin Peaks'. The plots intersect and the evil emerges. Von Trier's excursion into television resulted in one of the most satisfying limited run series ever. Though the follow up season would not live up to the caliber set here one still misses the residents and patients of Kingdom Hospital. Kudos to the script writers.
The best episode of season 1! Extremely funny, extremely disturbing, extremely brilliant. I didn't think it was possible for my respect of Von Trier as a genius and an artist to get higher than it already was but this show proved me wrong! Absolute perfection.
Fourth episode brings the series to a close on an open-ended note of insanity, as surreal imagery, hysterical comedy & straight-faced supernatural hokum combine in one of the filmmaker's most entertaining & unique provocations. On a final note, the show's pre-title sequence (the bleaching pond prologue) is perhaps the most hypnotic & mesmerising thing Trier has ever directed & as close as he got to besting Tarkovsky.
