Melancholia Triumphant!

My friend in Toronto just saw Melancholia, directed by Lars von Trier, and said it was superb!

I feel justified. I saw it a few months ago, and I was literally blown away by it. It was an incredible cinematic experience. I told many people and tried to get friends to go to it, but nobody would.

As I read reviews about it, I had to wade through a rehash of everything said or imagined about Lars von Treier, but most reviews totally missed it. I found the ending to be the most intense cinematic portrayal of an ancient and primal sense of the Holy that I have ever seen.
