[Quick compare] Bernini with Von Trier


The Antichrist (2009) – Lars Von Trier

Having watched Antichrist last night and thought it was excellent (and not at all like an “art house fart” as one critic commented. True, the black and white image saturated by the non-diegetic operatic soundtrack does have a slight taste of art house cliché about it, but, as Deleaze says, every artist approaches the canvass already virtually filled with cliché and has to break with it on their own terms.), I would give a quick post to a certian juxtraposotion that sprang to mind during the viewing.
