Looking at this guy's review history is hilarious.

What I would say to this critique basically comes down to, "if you don't like violence, why would you go see Rambo, let alone write a review for it."

A oppressive piece of work is one that weighs on the mind afterword. I feel like that quality shows how skillfully Lars con Trier pulled it off.

I really wanted this film to be a dark comedy, but it just wasn't. Both the hero and antagonist were extremely unlikable and I had a hard time caring just what happened to them.

And from the technical side, I am now an opponent of hand-held filming. Put the thing on a tripod, folks, my eyes hurt from trying to watch this thing.

As for Mr. Nusair's review, I found it to be spot on in nearly every aspect. The opening three scenes in extreme slow-motion told a stirring story... but... it's only downhill from there.

Well, the oppressive part is right. Seems like that was the goal with all the tight shots and slow movement. So....mission accomplished!

I did not love the first hour, but the second hour is a disaster? Only for the impatient, and that's the point - we wait and wait for tomorrow and in the end perish.
