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.
