I’m totally grossed out by the existence of the movie Antichrist. I definitely don’t want to see it and I don’t even want to read about it, yet I keep on doing so, and now, to add insult to inanity, I’m writing about it. Gah! But if I were going to read about it some more (which I have and will), I would read this review for its delightful description of Lars von Trier as a “perpetual misanthropic teen” and for its well-placed Simpsons references, which I know Baji will appreciate and which are not excerpted below.
Jason had told me that the violence “wasn’t that bad.” By which I guess he meant, “it is worse than anything else you’ve ever seen in your life or, indeed, can even imagine seeing.” […] [T]he violence in “Antichrist” isn’t that bad, if your favourite movie is “Ilsa She-Torturer of Auschwitz” and you are also a devoted fan of “Mouth-Foaming Baby-Raping Cannibal Maniacs Part Four.” Otherwise, it is fucking unbelievably horrific.
Anyway, in case you were for some reason not aware that you should not see this movie (or read about it), then I believe that bringing it to your attention (and having you read about it) should convince you.
