Melancholia review

By Trueno
This movie was just weird overall. It was kind of worth seeing in a way, but many parts were boring and drawn out. It was also unrealistic as the situation in which another planet, out of our solar...

Melancholia: 130 Minutes of Torment

By YoYo Mama
Of the 30 or so people in the theatre for this feast of ashes, half left by the midpoint. Others like myself remained to see if it could possibly get worse. It did. This vile and pointless movie is...

Strangely Beautiful

Somewhere in the middle of so-so & go

Melancholia

By amonroe999
I am still trying to comprehend just what exactly was the purpose of this film. The best I can come up with is how people react differently to a civilization-ending situation. That being said, I am...

Beautiful yet Boring in all its Un-Glory

By ska-triumph
This has got to be one of Von Trier's tamest, and frankly lamest, films in his oevure. It's hard enough to keep the mounting end-of-the-world tension high AFTER the film already wows you with the...
