    Yes! Looks killer. Can't wait. I'm sure there will be a screening close to me.

    Anyone know if Lars Von Trier has visited the United States yet? Despite setting his movies here, I read somewhere that he's never actually been to the U.S.

    One-off screening tonight of the "Director's Cut" in select locations. The version that will be released in December will be an R-rated cut.

    I think that he doesn't like flying.

    Yeah, but the problem is that parents are taking their children to the R-rated version and getting the Unrated Director's Cut instead.

    The R-rated version hasn't opened yet, not for another 2 weeks. It played for one night only so far in a heavily advertised very limited single screening run of the unrated Director's Cut. It's not an issue with parents/children and them viewing the one-night-only unrated version (pretty sure all the unrated screenings were very likely 18+ enforced unlike an R-rated film where a child can see it with an adult), but the issue is that IFC Films didn't get a specific MPAA waiver signed/completed to exhibit the unrated version so close in time to the MPAA certified R-rated cut opening.

    It's all a bit silly, I'm trying to find the article, but I remember reading what was cut and as I remember it was pretty insignificant to be honest, good publicity though!

    I don't know. I loved Dancer in the Dark but after seeing Antichrist, I don't know if I ever need to see another Von Trier movie again as long as I live.

    I know, I was being sarcastic.

    Although the statement the MPAA made does suggest that this is going to confuse parents. Which is laughable to say the least. Bad parenting is bad parenting regardless of what rating the MPAA slaps on this.

    The two versions aren't being shown at the same time, and the one-night screenings are clearly labeled as the Director's Cut. The MPAA is pursuing this because they're a bunch of dicks on a power trip.

    Will wait for the unrated version, presumably it'll be released on disc at some point.

    You and me both, pal. I saw Dancer and was devastated. In that good kind of way. I remember there was a big controversy that year about Best Actress, how Julia Roberts stole it away from Ellen Burstyn (Requiem for a Dream). I thought so too, till I saw Dancer. Then I thought Bjork should have been the winner (she wasn't even nominated, which was a damn shame).

    But man, everything else I've seen from Von Trier has been a chore. Especially Epidemic, which actually has the word "EPIDEMIC" on screen the ENTIRE DURATION OF THE MOVIE!

    I'll still see House, but probably wait for Blu-Ray for the unrated cut. Last night's show near me was sold out.
