Lars von Triers's new film "Melancholia" will have its work cut out for it to be
as transgressive as his last one, "Antichrist" (though the director might have
outdone himself in his boorishness promoting the film ).
But this story of a miserable well-to-do family joining the rest of us 99%-ers
in a world-ending collision with another planet should live up to its title.
You can get an early glimpse of it this Sunday (November 6) at 10 am at the Coolidge Corner
Theatre as part of the Talk Cinema series.
Plus get a chance to jabber about it to your heart's content in a
post-screening discussion hosted by yours truly.
