Baby Face vs. Breaking the Waves



on 11/15/2011

OK, yeah. Speaking of melodramatic endings... The women in these movies couldn't be any more different. One makes the ultimate sacrifice for the love of a man, while another sacrifices a bunch of men to get ahead. Baby Face is definitely more entertaining than Breaking the Waves. Or, Breaking the Waves is masochistically entertaining. I get some weird enjoyment from Lars von Trier's provocations, but I'm not sure if that's positive. I like Barbara Stanwyck more than Emily Watson, so there's that.
