Within the first 30 minutes, was telling myself to turn this off. Kept watching for some stupid reason. Wish I had listened to myself. Awful, pointless movie .

One of the worst films I've ever attempted to watch.

This may well be about depression,and the planet Melancholia an all too obvious reference, but my sense is that Melancholia is real, and the problem for most people in the film is that they can't be moved from their self-centered lives to see doom ahead. The reference is to climate change, a ...Read more

This movie was so long that when I watched it in theaters it had an intermission. So keep that in mind. It is very depressing and very beautiful.

That's interesting. The film has a duration of 2h16m which really isn't that long.

This is a gorgeous and powerful film featuring superb performances by its two female leads, as well as two of the best sci-fi special effects scenes I know of. (The night scene lit by both Melancholia and the Moon, and the final scene.) But it's not for everyone. If you don't have a strong ...Read more

I agree. Thanks for standing up for LVT! After what he did to Bjork in Dancer in the Dark, he's on my "Ick, but watch through your fingers..." list, along with Woodie Allen. This is one of his good ones, with an important message for all of us.

Kirsten Dunst received due accolades for her portrayal of crippling depression, but less discussed is the film's utter devotion to the sublime. Von Trier's trademark composited shots overwhelm and dazzle the senses. The film luxuriates in the grandeur of the universe and natural world with ...Read more

These were the longest two hours I've spent in a great while. The only redeeming value was the glimpse of Kirsten's powerful thighs. The movie was 136 minutes. It was 135 too long.
