Avoid Lars von Trier, his characters are identical in both this and melancholia. I wanted to like these movies, but after seeing both, I just cannot enjoy them. Slow motion sequences for beginnings, both having ladies pleasuring themselves in the woods, both with sex scenes galore, both with men vs women. So repetitive and dull. This isn't art, this is the horror of misguided cinema. If you do choose to watch them, I vote melancholia as the better of the two.

I don't enjoy being sad, but the thing I like most about Von Trier's films are how emotional they make me feel. They are depressing but beautiful. It's hard to explain. Although, I wish I never watched this one- it's good, but I wish I could erase it from my mind. A lot of the time towards the end I was screaming, and not because it's scary. If you watch it you'll understand, and maybe even more if you're a woman.

Wholly distressing and disturbing. Wholly excellent in execution. Some great films will come from seeing Antichrist. I suspect it ultimately will be a bad result for cinema.
