Melancholia Reviews

The journey von Trier has taken to this one immaculate moment has been bold to say the least, but at long last, he has revealed his full ability, and the result is his masterwork.

Deadspin

It's the little moments that annihilate us, every day, every normal day. Days that don't end, days when the end of the world is a comfort that the sick like Justine cannot afford.

Cinema Sight

A strong central performance from Kirsten Dunst, this is one of the best Lars von Trier films yet made.

Gordon and the Whale

Melancholia is not about the end of the world, but the end of a feeling: happiness.

You would think that material like this would make for a fascinating film, but unfortunately that doesn't end up being the case.

An extraordinarily ambitious exercise in nihilism.

Cinemania

Much more compelling than the narratively confused Tree of Life, and a welcome return to form for the mad Dane.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

While existence hangs in the balance in Melancholia, von Trier's fatalistic embrace of impending doom is starkly beautiful and strangely reassuring.

A lot of people will hate Melancholia for all the reasons it's not like other sci-fi films or traditional dramatic films - and others such as myself will love it for its difference.

While I appreciated what it was trying to do, I wasn't wild about it.

Times-Picayune

This is not a feel-good movie. This is the frigid, hard-to-embrace cinematic opposite of a feel-good movie, in fact -- all wrapped in one long, dark metaphor for depression.

It's impossible not to be moved in a profound way by the small events that take place within the larger one.

Movie Talk

A strange mix of apocalyptic sci-fi and darkly comic social drama, the film is glacially slow in tempo but filled with stunning, gorgeously shot images. It will annoy as many viewers as it charms.

It's an enormous pity Trier didn't find/commission an overarching score that supported his vision.

Melancholia takes great pleasure in distressing its audience with ugly, harrowing imagery and behavior, but, more often that not, Von Trier's film is an exhibition of life's beauty and the shame it would be to watch it burn.

Pitched as a beautiful movie about the end of the world, Melancholia succeeds.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Von Trier finds a way to give his characters a moment of grace, of the sort we're not used to seeing in his films. That feels like artistic growth, even if he had to destroy the world to get there.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

An overpowering large-screen experience for those willing to enter von Trier's 'magic cave,' where emotional 'reality' trumps the laws of physics.
