**** out of ****    "Melancholia" begins with a stunning montage of beautiful images, all somehow connected. They are meant to act as a sort of moving scrapbook for the end of the world; at the end of it all, we see a planet collide with our own, incinerating everything on it, perhaps even the water. Before that, we get extreme slow motion imagery such as a woman clutching her infant child as she walks across what looks like a golf course, another woman observing as a mysterious …

   Due to the stylized similarities within the story and the ethic and pragmatic visual poem, Melancholia feels like The Tree of Life's little brother.

Beautiful Destruction
MELANCHOLIA Written and Directed by Lars von Trier Starring Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Keifer Sutherland and Alexander Skarsgard   Justine: The Earth is evil. We don’t need to grieve for it. Nobody will miss it.   Leave it to one of the world’s most infamously melancholic directors, Lars von Trier, to open a film with Earth as we know it coming to an abrupt demise. Dead birds drop from the sky, roots come out from the ground and people sink into the dirt beneath …
