Fascinating for a while but, in the end, just sleep-inducing.

Says everything it wants to say early on, but then repeats it all endlessly.

Salt Lake Tribune

Von Trier aims to hold a mirror up to America's mistreatment of its own people -- but he ends up revealing more about his own abhorrence for the people watching his movies.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It just turns out as an intellectualized meal of hatred and violence and half-baked ideas.

You get the feeling that von Trier, up on his soapbox, couldn't find it in his heart to make some necessary cuts. He should have thrown his ego to the dogs.

It's a tough sit through tough questions.

...an experience that's both grueling and, in its way, glorious.

Lars von Trier is probably a genius. This doesn't stop him from being a jerk.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

This examination of selfishness, xenophobia and the human ability to rationalize acts of horror may have audience members squirming not with outrage but recognition...

Can be extreme though (von Trier's) observations on culture are astute.

Exasperating and nearly three-hour blend of stagecraft and sermonizing.

You can loathe Dogville because it represents the basest ideas of human greed and cruelty, but you can't deny that it makes those ideas feel frighteningly real.

This unique cinematic experience is a parable of greed and revenge that could take place anywhere.

Singular and unforgettable -- the work of a brilliant crackpot.

Kidman, in a performance as emotionally stark as any she's ever given, makes Grace's journey achingly real, even though everything around her is deliberately artificial.

Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

The daring, artistic brilliance of Dogville far outshines any negative interpretation we may have of the work. It's to be praised for inspiring varying interpretations and generating debate.

You just have to see it to believe it. Frankly, I have never seen anything like it, which is not to say that it's good or bad, but it is different and even original.

You don't so much enjoy watching it as you simply appreciate the genius that went into its creation.

What could have been limiting, especially considering the film's daunting length, turns out to be a daring concept.
