I recently saw the film, Melancholia, by Lars von Trier. It is currently showing at the New York Film Festival and you can read a synopsis and get tickets here. It will be widely released in the United States on November 11.
I really can’t say enough about this film. It might have just featured the most beautiful opening I have ever seen. The colors, the lighting, the shadow, the wedding. It had an otherworldly sadness and beauty to it all, which, I believe, is exactly what the director was trying to capture. I am still thinking about the movie, but must warn you, if you are looking for something uplifting and fun, this is probably not the film for you.
All of these photos and more information can be found on the Melancholia website.
