    When I was kid I saw Lars von Trier's movie Europa and was immediately enthralled by its tragic beauty.Many years have passed since then and now I have to say-Manderlay is probably the worst movie I've ever seen.

    Lars von Trier is back, so to speak--he's never visited the States, which makes his snide anti-American allegories even more infuriating to someā€¦.But the story holds up well enough to deliver a pointed critique of establishing self-rule at gunpoint.

    If you hated "Dogville" because of the overage of narration or the length of time it took to finally get to a point, you'll be pleased to know that von Trier has lessened both those elements. With that said, it still has some of the same flaws.
  3. Nothing von Trier presents here, whether real or imagined, is fresh or new.
