Review

  • I have noticed that quite a lot of people seem to dig this stuff. But I have yet to see a single explanation - even argument - as to what is the point of it all.

    I can see something mildly interesting in Von Triers idea with the five obstructions. How restricting rules can spur creativity - as with the dogma rules.

    But the original movie by Jørgen Leth can only be described as ridiculous. So this goes for the remakes too.

    I mean, look at it: "Here is a man. The perfect man. This is his eye. This is his nose. His mouth. How does he eat? This is how he eats."

    Helloooo???!!...

    Being Danish I am ashamed that this can pass as art. Coming from the very country that brought us the story of "The emperor's new clothes".
