Excerpt: Antichrist is definitely not a movie for most people. It's a deeply disturbing, at-times graphically violent and emotionally draining experience made with amazing technical quality and seeming disdain for humanity.
Excerpt: I was stunned as I watched Antichrist. The acting set a standard for others, the photography creative and masterful, the PQ and AQ were superior to most BDs. But what was stunning was the story. And when I say stunning, I mean it in the sense of being stunned by a Taser.
Excerpt: I needed some oxygen after watching Antichrist. It is so obscure, intense and completely insane. Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg are in perfect symbiose. Just wow but seriously??? Not for everyone! PQ = 5 AQ = 4.5 Extras = Didn't review Overall = 5
Excerpt: You already know this by now: Antichrist is full of controversy, it has been praised by some and damned by others. If you feel like you might enjoy it or have an inkling of curiosity, then I say dive in. Antichrist is a true film experience, one you might never get again.
Excerpt: The film looks great. Criterion has really outdone themselves in terms of picture and audio quality. The picture detail is outstanding, and while the film contains no action, the viewer is rewarded with stunning shots of scenery.
Excerpt: La película es unas de esas que tienen tantos adeptos como opositores, uno de los motivos es que la película es en sí misma no ocupa de un espectador que la visualice, es pues una representación para y por Von trier; esto significa cuando menos dos cosas 1)él no quiere darnos algo que nos guste,2)...
Excerpt: I will admit to being somewhat biased here as I do think Lars von Trier is one of the finest film directors working today, and this film easily reinforces that opinion. I originally purchased the UK blu ray as I was too impatient for the Criterion release.
This flim will blow your mind if you have a brain!
