Grotesque but with purpose

bpm_255, IMDb
3 May 2010
  • Summary: This movie is violent and very sexually graphic, bordering at times on artistic but hardcore pornography; but it isn't lurid for the sole purpose of scandal. "Gory" appropriately describes some sections of this film but the word by no means encapsulates it.

A gruelling tale of mythical grandeur

Jack` Harding, IMDb
22 December 2009
  • Summary: An eerie yet gorgeous tapestry of lingering close-ups; parallels, cuts and slow-motion photography, Lars Von Trier's Antichrist is a gruelling tale of mythical grandeur: a bizarre yet beautiful film chock full of sadism and shagging, Satanic dogma and similes. Most of which, I don't understand.

DON'T call this pretentious. It's just legitimate ART!

  • Summary: First, let me just say that although I consider Antichrist a 5 star film - I understand that it's not for everyone. It's pretty clear why most people would not enjoy it. First of all, it is entirely a piece of art.

An irritating piece of beautiful camera-work

15 August 2009
  • Summary: Films invariably provoke emotions on the part of the viewer. I have been shocked, awed, amused, saddened and comforted by a feature length before but never have I been so annoyed.

Embedded horror

Chris_Docker, IMDb
23 June 2009
  • Summary: Where does horror reside in the psyche? Lars von Trier has established himself as a maker of serious, avant-garde drama. He came to fame through Breaking the Waves, a controversial story of how far someone would go for love.

Antichrist

theisbj, IMDb
22 May 2009
  • Summary: This movie drained me... Without a doubt the most unpleasant and despairing movie I've ever watched. It's not just the graphic imagery that got to me, but the overall tone of the movie was incredibly dreadful and you could almost feel a presence of some sort of "evil".

Von Trier Masterclass

Claus Reinhold, IMDb
21 May 2009
  • Summary: First I have to make a comment to cynibun from United States who wrote "And if you look at the previous reviewers they are from Denmark, where the director is from. Perhaps you have to be Danish to appreciate the horrific torture pornography, who knows??...

Provoking...

ngo-jacki, IMDb
20 May 2009
  • Summary: Lars Von Trier is a director who's always been going his own ways, and this can definitely be seen in this movie. Antichrist is a movie that doesn't hold anything back when it comes to gore, and the stuff that you see in the film won't leave your mind the next couple of days.

When movies become art

arturo-45, IMDb
18 May 2009
  • Summary: Antichrist is an excellent and not often seen chance to see a magnificent piece of art. The director Lars Von Trier has always attempted to go beyond the limits of what could be shown in a movie without compromising his artistic vision. And in antichrist he succeeds.
