A Beautiful Movie About the End of the World

After reading the reviews, I decided not to see Lars von Trier's 2009 film, Antichrist; even though I admit to loving the darkness of Dogville and Dancer in the Dark, the prospect of watching a horror film that coheres around scenes of genital mutilation struck me as, well, not my cup of tea.

So I'm pleased to read that his new film takes him to a happier place (relatively speaking).  Melancholia will debut at Cannes in May.
