Review of "Antichrist," now playing at Cinema 21

Categories:

Antichrist
Director: Lars von Trier
With: Willem Dafoe, Charlotte Gainsbourg

This review is a bit late because I couldn’t set aside the time to watch the film, and because I was dreading it.  The comments I got from other reviewers were not conducive, although my colleague D.K. Holm had a favorable opinion.
This is really two movies.  First, a husband and wife (Dafoe and Gainsbourg), identified only as He and She, are making hot love while their toddler falls from a window to his death.  This sequence is one of the most beautiful I have seen in a film in a while, in radiant black-and-white and accompanied by gorgeous music.
