With Antichrist Lars von Trier has essentially made the world's most eccentrically bleak ASMR-video. All at different times beautiful and revolting, gut-wrenching and utterly preposterous.

Lars von Trier's darkest film by far.
Lars von Trier's experimental horror film Antichrist (2009) is the bleakest and most disturbing art film I have ever watched easily. It is depressing, haunting, and finally horrifying in its ungodly imagery and distressed characters. The film itself is entertaining to the end with tender love, passionate sex, dual mourning, and creepy thrills that will never leave you. Trier's use of violent sexual excursions and brutal sadomasochism will likely turn off all fainthearted viewers, so you are warned. Trier takes on themes of nature, religion, depression, grief, anger, frustration, coping, and acceptance. Even the panic attacks will startle you.
I recommend watching Antichrist alone in the dark at night for optimal scares. Antichrist will leave you changed forevermore.
Notably, Antichrist's credits said Trier had people research misogyny, Satanic mythology, and anxiety. I can absolutely see why. Antichrist features a decent man trying to save his grieving wife. But Trier adds in Satanic visuals and metaphors to unnerve you and build suspense beautifully like a specter floating close behind you throughout your viewing. It's like Lars von Trier wanted to scar and disturb his audience for eternity rather than just make them jump or scream. You will likely not be jumping out of your seat, but instead reaching for something to gouge out your eyes to stop consuming Trier's fearsome direction and shocking visuals.
Lars von Trier's direction is surprisingly gorgeous as he conjures up cinematic bliss with clever silhouettes in homes, grisly decaying animals in forests, and bloody corpses that will astonish you. Antichrist's imagery is stark and bleak, but not without meaning. Everything represents something and the film gives you plenty of time and clues to figure it out for yourself. You are not treated like a child, though you might wish for a hug during some of the more gruesome, ghastly, and gory sections of Antichrist.
Trier keeps you engaged and curious with an intriguing premise of coping with loss, experiencing grief, and then something else entirely. Trier's depraved finale is not one you'll likely ever forget. I know I shall never cease to recall those scenes. The pace is excellent as you are riveted by the dark mystery and emotional weight of the leads' sorrow that you hardly notice 108 minutes go by, honestly. Anders Refn and Asa Mossberg's editing keep the pace moving in addition to Trier's focused direction.
Similarly, Kristian Eidnes Anderson's score is scarce and bleak. The music in Antichrist is sincerely ravishing and crescendos into something darker. Anthony Dod Mantle's cinematography is stunning as he fills Antichrist will breathtaking shots of natural forest surroundings. The inner house shots are framed perfectly around doorways and hallways. You are constantly greeted by shadowy rooms or wide open landscapes of trees. The scene of Willem Dafoe walking through a field of tall grass is genuinely lovely and serene.
Lastly, but surely not least, is Antichrist two leads are mesmerizing testaments to actors committing to a role. Willem Dafoe is sympathetic and endearing as a bereaved father and a clever psychiatrist. Dafoe is an interesting casting since he's often the hero and even played Jesus Christ in The Last Temptation of Christ. For him to portray He in Antichrist is a bold choice to say the least. Antichrist might honestly contain Willem Dafoe strongest acting as he desperately tries to console his grieving wife, while dealing with the gloom of the forest.
Likewise, Charlotte Gainsbourg delivers the performance of a lifetime as She. Gainsbourg portrays a mother who lost a child and a wife unsatisfied with her marriage. This setup leads to a massive twist that Gainsbourg plays with the fervor of a serial killer. I felt scared of her as She all times. It is hard to believe how brave Charlotte Gainsbourg was for bearing so much skin and performing such an emotionally demanding role opposite a legend like Dafoe. I give all due praise to the mighty Charlotte Gainsbourg.
Antichrist is a genius art film executed with perfect technical aspects and gorgeous filmmaking. The direction, cinematography, editing, acting, and music will enchant you into Lars von Trier's nightmare dreamscape of traumatizing visuals.
With images he conceived when battling bouts of depression and written possibly in the catharsis of his cognitive therapy , Lars von Trier provokes dread, nausea and bewilderment in his sinister arthouse horror reinterpreting Eden as a satanic forest and women inherently evil.
As unsettling, explicital and difficult to watch as it can posibly get. Incredibly beautiful photography.
Nature is Satan's Church.
This film was solid.
This started out pretty boring but once they got to the woods, all hell broke loose. It's almost impossible to shock me, but one scene totally got me, I certainly screamed, shock achieved!
i kind of enjoyed this but in the long run, im not so sure this is a winner
Lars Von Trier found a much better camera man to shoot the scenes. Because compared to his earlier movies I found the cinematography good. The acting is also good. The only failure is the story. Can a woman be more masochistic? I found the last 1/2 good but the first hour and a half leading up to it kind of tedious.
