Dogville (2003) Lars von Trier High discussions on morality at the end = irritating. The theater form is interesting, but at times feel gimmicky. The explicit portrayal of rape raises so much anger... 1.19 kino
S'en Fout la Mort (1990) Claire Denis There's an overall story line, but little is explicit (like the relationship between Toni and Jocelyn, or Toni and the other guy, or the relationship between Dah and Jocelyn).
