Dancer in the Dark

Dancer in the Dark ★★★★★

I will never forgive von Trier for the physical and psychological damage he inflicted upon Bjork during filming, and my god, does Bjork's angelic aura shine majestically. Yet, I could never, ever deny the absolute masterful experience in moralistic humanism encompassed with such divine ingenuity and heartbreak through both Bjork's celestial innocence and von Trier's bitingly dark class commentary. There are very few cinematic experiences that could ever come close to this film's astounding final act ⁠— and truly its experience as a whole.
