a great documentary on a great director
9 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

Excellent, funny and revealing documentary about Lars Von Trier, who is far from chilly under interview. Plenty of rare footage, fascinating comments from various colleagues and actors (especially from Von Trier's producer, as well as from Katrin Cartlidge and Ernst-Hugo Jaregard), and generous clips from many related films make this recommended viewing for both Von Trier fans and those who are just curious.
