Intrigueing, disturbing..., 29 November 2005
Author: adeline7g from Australia

If you've seen Dogville, and were intrigued by it, then you can't miss this documentary. If anything, I felt even more disturbed after watching Dogville Confessions than watching the movie itself.

Dogville Confessions isn't your ordinary "making of" documentary. Rather, it focuses less on the technicalities of filming and more on the interactions between the director, the script and the actors, during their gruelling period of filming in an old warehouse in the frozen part of Sweden.

A "confession box" is placed on the set, with a video camera. It's available 24 hours a day, and strangely, the actors do end up in the box relating their experiences from time to time.

We discover that director Lars Von Trier doesn't get along with actors so well. And it really comes out in Confessions when we get to see first-hand how ineffectively he interacts with the actors, in particular with Nicole Kidman, Lauren Bacall, Paul Bettany and Stellan Skarsgard.

We see tempers flare on set. There are tears, arguments, confusion. But this is no soap opera - it's a weird disjointedness that seems to affect everyone involved in the filming. It's like Dogville temporarily overtook these people's lives for the duration of filming.
