This review is from: Dogville [DVD]  (DVD)
Dogville is a masterpiece by Lars Von Trier. His minimalist set brings out his characters and allows us to focus on their development. Nicole Kidman delivers a very convincing performance as the sweet Grace who encounters the dark heart of humanity in the friendly town of Dogville.
The movie runs approximately three hours long and is slow moving so you need to have patience to enjoy it. Bitter at times, Dogville will make you cringe and cry simultaneously. It ends in an overwhelming conversation delivered with near perfect script writing.
Lars Von Trier deals with the mass effect of humans in a group. We are all perfectly capable of acting unjustly but justifying our actions using the majority as an excuse.
