    Just calling this movie "Antichrist" was enough to make me pay for a ticket when it was released in cinema. Although, after watching it for the third time now (one with director's commentary) I still don't fully get which part of the movie has anything to do with the antichrist (*), but what I do know is that I absolutely love it.

    Director Lars Von Trier, who went through a deep depression while making this film, managed to get the attention at Cannes Film Festival with this very explicit and shocking piece of art. Of course, critics were mixed. Some hated it, some loved it.
    If you are willing to dig deeper into the movie, trying to understand the meaning of it, you will see there is much more behind it than violence and grotesque porn. You shouldn't watch this while eating though.

    Also Charlotte Gainsbourg, ooh I love her, gives us a brillant (and very brave) performance, winning the Best Actress award at Cannes. Totally deserved.

    The visual aspect of "Antichrist" is just jaw-dropping and very asthetic. Especially the slooooow-motion stuff, shot with a 1,000 fps camera, is awesome (and perfect for WTM).

    (*) I do have a theory about it. I think the movie itself impersonates the antichrist. If you get what I mean.
