Von Trier draws us inexorably into the web of these characters. He loses us in a dream of his own devising. That's filmmaking. Now if he'd only learn to shut up at press conferences. show more
Its true subject is melancholia as a spiritual state, a destroyer of happiness that emerges from its hiding place behind the sun, just like the menacing planet, then holds the heroine, Justine, in its unyielding grip and gives Ms. Dunst the unlikely occasion for a dazzling performance. show more
Melancholia is a remarkable mood piece with visuals to die for (excuse the pun), and a performance from Dunst that runs the color spectrum of emotions. show more
Fantastic movie. Involving, intriguing, unique. There aren\'t enough words for this wonderful flick. The well known actors are a plus.
Don\'t waste your time watching this movie. I wasted over an hour of my life on this waste of film. The movie makes no sense, and doesn\'t hold a solid ************** all over, and it\'s hard to make sense of what is actually happening. Disappointed :/
My 2nd favorite picture of 2011. And I\'m feeling guilty. It really should be my first. Kirsten Dunst deserved an Oscar nod. Rosie O\'Donnell does not. Bravo!
