Whilst The Purified covers some of the same ground as the earlier Tranceformer, it has its own unique qualities to recommend it. Filmed during the course of a day long meeting between Dogme adherents Lars Von Trier, Soren Kragh-Jacobsen, Thomas Vinterberg, and Kristian Levring, the film isn't afraid of confronting the contradictions and flaws of the Dogme manifesto. Levring has the most insightful comments, and it's clear that Vinterberg was most comfortable with stretching the rules. Vinterberg's Festen scenarist Mogens Rukov is also around with some interesting thoughts.
