Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The end of the world, von Trier-style, is a middling thing as a film.
Fresh: The most composed and beautiful and conspicuously adult film of [von Trier's] career...
Fresh: It's a planet that can't come soon enough for her, but one that I kept willing away. Not, I'm a little embarrassed to say, to save humanity from Melancholia, but simply to stay in this remarkable movie's presence just a little longer.
Fresh: Melancholia will haunt you for days, maybe weeks.
Ten dollars to rent????!!!!!! I Tunes, are you out of your mind????? I hope this is an error. It looks intriguing, but not enough to shell out ten dollars for.
What A Sad Movie.
"Fresh?" Audacious, beautiful, tactful filmmaking?"
More like glacial, boring, pretentious cr*p with no story or entertainment value whatsover.
I gave it a half hour. And $9.99. Don't make the same mistake.
10 bucks to rent is lame..
