A REAL insight...
3 January 2002 | by (Stanmore, NSW) – See all my reviews

This is a quality documentary, providing a truly personal insight, aiding a real understanding of the work, and the man behind the work. I think the documentary itself emulates the work of von Trier, which was quite fitting. Well worth seeing. 7/10
