Wondering why times are missing?

Melancholia

Lars von Trier (Breaking the Waves, Dogville, Antichrist) goes sci-fi(ish) with this end-of-the-world opus for the Prozac generation. Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man) is a manic depressive bride navigating a terrible wedding reception while a previously undiscovered planet plots a collision course for Earth. The lensing in moody and the acting is commendable. (Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Alexander Skarsgard round out the tight cast.) Mostly, though, it's a lot of sitting around staring at the sky and looking mopey. 130 minutes
