this past weekend i went to my local independent theater and finally got to see the much anticipated film, Melancholia by Lars von Trier. from previews, critics reviews, and sundance accolades, I knew this would be a goody. especially since i have a (proudly proclaiming) love for movies with Kirsten Dunst -- this girl is always portraying characters with angst and attitude. interview with the vampire, the virgin suicides, crazy/beautiful, eternal sunshine, marie antoinette...even in bring it on! all with a recurring theme of damsel in distress in a very melancholic way.
