Lars von Trier's "Trilogy of Depression" contains extensive homages to the works of Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky. This film features a scene with Willem Dafoe standing quietly in the rain, surrounded by lush scenery, a clear reference to the opening scene of Solaris (1971). See more »
I'm going call it a continuity 'goof' even though it doesn't 'break the spell' of this movie (as if anything could!). When we first see the articulate, autophagic fox face to face it is wearing a collar with a bell hanging from it. See more »
Oak trees grow to be hundreds of years old. They only have to produce one single tree every hundred years in order to propagate. May sound banal to you but it was a big thing for me to realize that when I was up here with Nic. The acorns fell on the roof vent. They kept falling and falling. And die and die. And I understood that everything that used to be beautiful about Eden was perhaps hideous. Now I could hear what I couldn't hear before. The cry of all the things that are to die.

I loved this movie, not because of the gore and violence, but because it's... well I don't know how to say it, but it moved me in a lot more ways than the usual movie, this movie makes Tarantino look like a mainstream instructor, this is as much an art piece as it is a movie, it'll make you feel things that you never thought a movie would ever make you feel.
I for one are tired of all the mainstream "good guy's life is good, bad guy ruins it, good guy takes revenge" predictable movies, sadly it seems to be what 99% of the American population prefere, we seem to go to the movies to get a good feeling of justice will always prevail and good conquers bad and so on.
I'm pretty sure that the movie will be received pretty well outside of the states and Australia, probably because our country is excellent at keeping anything that doesn't paint the world pink with flowers all over it, far away from our narrow minded and fragile minds.
