BEST MOVIES OF 2011: 10. MELANCHOLIA
Lars Von Trier's mind-bender is an emotional roller coaster. As the newly discovered planet Melancholia hurtles towards Earth, we see the end of the world through two sets of eyes - two sisters played by Kirsten Dunst and Chartlotte Gainsbourg. Between the first over saturated act, featuring a surrealist fantasy of a dysfunctional wedding, to the second act's bleak impending doom - this movie made me feel things no others did this year. MELANCHOLIA is not for everybody, but it ends so strong, I can't see how most viewers won't be moved.
