4.0 out of 5 stars a challenge 11 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
If it hadn't been for the vociferous praise from a friend, wild horses couldn't have dragged me to watch Lars Von Trier's latest controversy. Not only did it seem to be thoroughly unpleasant but having recently been joined by our second son the timing couldn't have been any worse for a film which follows the tortured path of a couple grieving after the death of their toddler. It doesn't matter who you are though, or what your familial setup might be, Antichrist is always going to be an uncomfortable and uncompromising watch. Deeply troubling, controversial in the truest sense of the word and as admirable as it is repulsive, I'm still not entirely sure how I feel but after a week or two I am at least ready to get something out there.

It is an uncompromising start, Von Trier seems keen to set out his stall early. The first few minutes of the film, shot in beautiful slow motion black-and-white, show Willem Defoe as 'He' and Charlotte Gainsbourg as 'She' making love, including a close-up shot of a thrusting, erect penis so that you can accuse him of pornography and the simultaneous, slow, almost balletic sequence events that leads to the couple's son falling from their apartment window onto the snowy street below. We are then into Grief, the name of this first section, which has hospitalised and medicated her and left him, who is a therapist, with the cold detachment of a professional, searching for the best way to help her through her grief. At first we feel huge sympathy for Gainsbourg, crippled by her grief, lashing out for some kind of purchase on her emotions, whilst at the same time being repelled by Defoe's clinical and arrogant treatment of his partner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very thought provoking. 1 Nov 2013
Format:DVD
This isn't so much as a review but how it made me feel. It was like car crash tv for me, it repulsed me but It also fascinated me to the point I had to watch it. I could tell it was beautifully shot and the brooding darkness only added to the atmosphere. I have always thought Willem Defoe has the most amazing facial expressions in any film he makes and what a fabulous actress too. Almost having the total opposite of Defoe's facial manipulation she made it all that more chilling. As a woman I believe i am totally broadminded but I was quite shocked as to how graphic the sex scenes were but I thought it was necessary to add to the sombreness of the film. If a film plays on my mind afterwards then I consider it to have been worth the watch. I really don't know what anyone would get out of this film as a night in and a DVD for entertainment but if you like diverse films that make you think about it's topic then I would recommend that you watch this.

3.0 out of 5 stars If You Go Down To The Woods Today..... 3 Nov 2013
By Keith M TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
...you might just find this rather unconvincing, hyperbolic, mystical take on (predominantly) female grief and guilt directed by 'enfant terrible', Dane Lars von Trier in 2009. Now, don't get me wrong, von Trier is, for me, one of the most innovative (and often brilliant) film-makers at work currently, and has repeatedly 'gone where other artists fear to tread' (subject-wise). Even with Antichrist, there are the seeds of a disturbing, and potentially powerful, film - two parents grieving the loss of a child via an 'accident', growing increasingly distant, and with the mother becoming increasingly disturbed and obsessed with the notion that she may have somehow contributed to their predicament. However, to then layer on top (for me, what is) some mumbo-jumbo around (OK, factual) female persecution (Gynocide) over the centuries and then to conjure up talking foxes and a final 30 minutes that should not be watched whilst eating your dinner (really Lars!) - sadly, I'm left with the impression of 'shock for shock's sake', rather than something a little more subtle, with the film's (potentially) important message thereby falling through the cracks.

That is not to say that there aren't moments of power (and, indeed, beauty) in Antichrist. In fact, the film's Prologue is stunning - shot (by Anthony Dod Mantle) in slo-mo black-and-white as Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg's (anonymous) couple, with the exquisite sound of Handel's music floating in the background, make love as (unbeknownst to them) their infant son wanders towards an open window.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'TENSE STUFF' 9 Aug 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
The film does somehow transmit long periods of tention without really going anywhere.
After the tragic loss of their young son, the couples marriage is at breaking point, they decide to try and mend their marriage and come to terms with the loss of their young son by travelling to their cabin which is situated in the middle of a forest and is remote as it gets.
'William Defoe' try's to help his partner (Charlotte Gainsboroug) through her grief, but tention mounts, the getaway begins to turn into a nightmare.
With some pretty graphic violence along with explicit sex- scenes the film does hold your attention.
worth watching if but ----once.
