Backstory: Serial trickster Lars von Trier’s deliberately provocative and hugely upsetting latest, with Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg the dysfunctional grieving couple who retreat to the woods and into self-mutilating depression.
Sickest Scene: Willem Dafoe’s poor balls are cruched by Gainsbourg, who then proceeds to masturbate her now-unconscious hunsband until he ejaculates blood. Won’t find that trick in the Good Lovers Guide.
If It Was Family Friendly: The kid would have to be not-dead, for starters, and the trip to the woods would have to be a journey of adventure and discovery. Like Bridge To Terabithia, only with more sinister deer.
