Danish director Lars von Trier is often referred to as “polarizing,” but if there’s one thing the man behind works like The Kingdom, Dogville, Antichrist (pictured), and Nymphomanic knows, it’s how to freak the hell out of an audience. So why not focus on a serial killer next?
Melancholia and Antichrist director Lars Von Trier has a taste for the unsettling and bizarre, and it's apparently a taste he developed at an early age. When Von Trier was just 11 years old, he made his very own stop-motion animated film, and it's pretty weird.
When you finally get to see the graphic sexual content of cinematic auteur Lars von Trier's upcoming film Nymphomaniac, you need to know that's not really Shia La Boeuf graphically fucking Charlotte Gainsbourg. It's half of him, thanks to some completely insane VFX.
As a completely depraved thought experiment, the Icelandic comedy troupe Mid-Island forced Disney's cantankerous, pants-less mallard to conform to the gritty, hyper-spartan "Dogme 95" style pioneered by Danish directors like Lars von Trier.

Watch the new trailer for Lars von Trier's beautifully shot apocalypse movie, Melancholia, which takes place at the world's fanciest wedding, on the eve of the apocalypse.
Watch as Kirsten Dunst embraces the reality that the end of the world is nigh — by calling the Earth evil and refusing to grieve for our planet! It's disaster porn, Lars von Trier style!
Watch Kirsten Dunst experience the end of the world, Lars Von Trier style, in Melancholia. Possibly NSFW, due to naked Dunst.
Danish director Lars Von Trier, best known for the brutal Dogville and slasher movie Antichrist, is turning his baleful gaze to science fiction. But fear not: the scenery won't consist of outlines and labels, and no genitals will be harmed.
