Dancer in the Dark

Intellectually and aesthetically, this film is mesmerizing. Physically and emotionally, it's torture. Danish director Lars von Trier dumps his usual Dogma '95 stoicism to create this bizarre, brutal musical fantasy about a factory worker (Icelandic pop star Björk) who suffers the tribulations of Job, but escapes her harsh reality with musical flights of fancy. In the end, its hard to tell if she's another von Trier saint-woman, or just a masochist. Viewers will either love or loathe this one. 140 minutes
