    'Melancholia' Goes VOD On October 7th, One Month Before It Hits Theaters On November 11th

    Don't act so surprised. We pretty much figured this might happen when Magnolia picked up the film at the beginning of the year and as is usual for the indie label, one of the biggest arthouse films of the year will be available in your living room first before you can see it on the big screen. That'...

    With Lars Von Trier going all Mel Gibson (kind of but not really, but his big mouth is his own worst enemy) at Cannes in May, you'll be forgiven for forgetting that he was there to present his latest effort, the epic tale of sadness and apocalypse "Melancholia." The film was picked up by Magnolia lo...

    Beef Watch: Nicolas Winding Refn 'Repulsed' By Lars Von Trier! Von Trier Says 'Fuck Him'! Porno!

    Another day, another right turn to the ridiculously stupid fall-out from Lars Von Trier's "nazi" statements. Good old humorless reporters at Cannes loved raking noted provocateur Lars Von Trier over the coals for his joking "pro-Nazi" stance before the organization dubbed him persona non grata. The ...

    Cannes Organizers Sink To Lars Von Triers' Level, Ban Director From Festival With Immediate Effect

    Wow, Lars-Von-Trier-Is-A-Dick-At-A-Press-Conference-Gate just keeps running and running, doesn't it? The troublemaking director managed to totally overshadow the quality, or otherwise (the film's attracted the most divisive reaction of a festival that's already seen little consensus on its films) of "Melancholia" by behaving in his usual provocative manner at the film's press conference yesterday. The headline-happy helmer told assembled reporters that "Ok. I’m a Nazi... For a long time I thought I was a Jew and I was happy to be a Jew... I found out I was actually a Nazi. Which also gave me some pleasure. My family were German. What can I s...

    Cannes Review: Lars Von Trier Confronts Depression Head On In The Grim 'Melancholia'

    Two years after Lars Von Trier caused a major stir at Cannes with his contentious "Antichrist," the enfant terrible returns to the Croisette in a much more subdued mood with "Melancholia." Despite the premise, which sounds tailor-made for Von Trier to provoke and prod his audience, the film is easil...

    Will Lars Von Trier's Next Project 'The Nymphomaniac' Actually Be A Porn Film?

    As we've already discussed this morning, Lars von Trier is something of a provocateur, a trickster. So, when he told the Cannes press conference that followed the first screening of his latest picture, the apocalyptic "Melancholia," that "My next film, and Kirsten [Dunst] demanded it, will be porn. ...
