Unorthodox in certain ways
16 February 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the longest featurette on the double-DVD of Dogville, with a running time of 53 minutes. It consists of footage from behind the scenes, interviews and the "confessions"(they had set up a booth where anyone working on the film could go and unload if they needed to; they are also on the disc, apparently in full). We get a lot of insight into how Von Trier worked on the movie(although if you are not aware that he has a depression and takes medication to cope with it, there are things in this that will bewilder you; well, I guess that is widely enough known, and this was never meant to be an introduction to him), and we see discussions, improvisation and see how it was on set. This goes back and forth between a fly on the wall perspective and a more direct documentary approach. Most of the time, it is shot well. The editing is great, and they make a couple of interesting decisions in that regard, and this is at times stylized, without the focus being lost, or this feeling downright flashy. They talk English, Danish and a tad Swedish in this, but it is all subbed(reasonably well) for anyone who doesn't speak all three. There is disturbing content(in what we witness in this, the reality) as well as infrequent mild, moderate and strong language in this. I recommend this to anyone who liked the subject itself(save this until after watching the picture itself, it contains spoilers for it). 7/10
