Melancholia (2011) Rated R

The strained relationship between two sisters is further challenged when they discover that another planet is on course to collide with Earth. Starring Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Alexander Skarsgard, John Hurt, Stellan Skarsgard, Kiefer Sutherland.

This film is visually stunning, which comes as no surprise, considering it is directed by the extremely talented and avant-garde Lars von Trier. His unusual take on depression lost me, though; I couldn’t understand where he was going or what message he was trying to convey.  However, I found Dunst’s performance as the sister with depression quite fascinating. What makes this film outstanding is von Trier’s stunning style of filmmaking, but even that doesn’t make it worth a watch. This film is a pass for me.
