Antichrist by Lars Von Trier

Finally saw Antichrist by renowned Danish director, Lars Von Trier at IFC on Saturday. All I can say is WHOA. Just to give you a brief summary- it's about a grieving couple played by Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg who are mourning the death of their son caused by their own reckless actions. To cope with their loss, they go to their remote cabin in the forest called "Eden" where they confront their fears. The movie is quite intense and lived up to its controversial reputation. As per my movie buff homie Mike, Von Trier made this movie while he was under deep depression (it was highly evident). The cinematography is excellent but this movie is not for everyone. If you think you might be interested in watching this flick, peep the trailer below first to see what you're in for. Definitely watch at your own risk. Nonetheless, Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg gave an awesome performance as I would think it would take a lot to play their sexually explicit character. Beware of the first few minutes in the beginning of the movie and the last 30 minutes, you'll be cringing in your seat!
