Raises intriguing questions, but most audiences will have the same response to von Trier's weird commune: Grow up already.

It's one thing to know in your own ego that you're an intrepid cinematic genius. It's quite another thing to be so cocky that you leave flubbed shots in your movie and call it art.

Caustic, brutally funny, and more passionate than perhaps anything [Von Trier's] ever done.
