Flipside Movie Emporium

The turgid soap opera of a plot reveals little of the human truths [it] presumably wants to uncover.

It is not pleasing to watch, by any conceivable definition of that word.

Selma asks for so little, complains so seldom, and is in such perpetual denial about her problems that I find her virtually indigestible as a character.

They speak English, but the film doesn't feel American.

Dancer in the Dark is that curious thing, a movie that by turns is wincingly awful and heartbreakingly fine.

Screen It!

It may have some powerful and disturbing moments, but it's otherwise too self-absorbed and pretentious in showing the viewer just how quirky and moving a film it thinks it really is.

It hits all the cheap little notes of viewer manipulation that Hollywood hacks rely on to wring tears from the dramatically challenged suckers in the crowd.

The genre of the movie musical is in a sad state. This is a genre that did not need Von Trier's 'help'.

If this movie were ever to open on Broadway, they could hold the opening and closing night parties simultaneously.

it is hard to resist the suspicion that the whole thing is a ruse to satisfy some deep-seated sadistic urge in von Trier's artistic psyche

A numbing, nearly three-hour musical.

One Guy's Opinion

It offers its not-so-profound socio-political commentary in a pointlessly showy style thatsays more about its creator's self-importance than any message he wants to deliver.

Von Trier ... makes a mockery of his actors and his audience.

Falls far short of Breaking the Waves in nearly every way -- in uneven performances, an implausible narrative, its shallow emotional resonance.

A bitter confection chock-full of rusty barbs and a woeful, inexorable slide into doom and worse.
