    Whoa nelly Shia Leboof or whatever his name is will have unsimulated sex in this, that's a big leap for a hollywood dick sucker.

      I happened to get my first viewing of Antichrist on The Sundance Channel last night. Very solid film in terms of acting and story. The imagery was very artful if perhaps a little too preening and high concept. I'm not sure if I should have been confused by the film or not. In one respect, the story is a very simple fable, yet it seems as if the film--that is the images that make up the film--was telling a different story. Visually there were some beautiful moments, some harrowing moments, some grotesque moments. I admire anyone who can depict nudity and coitus in a way that is ugly and unappealing rather than erotic. I'm sure it's easy to do, but it is so rarely done (intentionally) that it gave me pause. I really like how the film builds a very typical sense of foreboding and expectation and then jumps the rails entirely about two thirds of the way in. I was expecting a typically atypical supernatural story where it would seem that the story is building toward some inevitable disclosure of supernatural horror. What I got was....well....what I got, which was perfect.

          Surprisingly Shia Lebeouf is incredibly passionate about arthouse and extreme cinema. He's friends with Marilyn Manson and I read how they spent a night watching Jodorowsky films and Man Bites Dog etc. He went on to direct a Born Villain music video that was very explicit and a homage to exploitation cinema.

          Think he's trying to move away from Hollywood crap and go with his passions so good on him.

            Fuck that, I'll comment. She looks like an alien, who stretched human skin over her frame.

            Sorry man, but yuck.

              Therein lies the beauty for me, when the "normal looks" breaks with the "Hollywood scheme".

                I guess that's the point I was trying to make.

                Give me natural beauty over glossed up, plastic fake Hollywood any day.

                      Been a fan of Von Trier after seeing Antichrist and then started to check out his other films. Should be a fun ride!

                      I don't think the main girl is ugly at all but I've always had a thing for those who don't fit into the "superhot" category. She's not smoking hot but think she's very attractive.

                              agree. Beautiful woman. I like those girls more than the polished models.

                              Dont know what to expect exactly.. child abuse, penetration.. it will definitley 'provoke' certain groups of people

                                Sounds interesting. I've only seen Anti-Christ, been meaning to watch it a second time but haven't as of yet.

                                This does sound rather saaaweet though.
