Lars Von Trier's Melancholia, a meditation on depression and the end of the world, stars Kirsten Dunst as an emotionally troubled newlywed named Justine, whose sister Claire (Charlotte Gainsbourg) throws her a lavish wedding party. While her lack of emotional stability begins to take a toll on Justine's new marriage as well as the party -- and old wounds are exposed -- Claire's wealthy husband John (Kiefer Sutherland) also knows a great deal about a planet that is on a possible collision course with Earth, further muddying the waters. The second half of the movie focuses on Claire, who ends up taking her sister in after the marriage collapses, and also begins to fear that John is hiding apocalyptically bad news. John Hurt and Charlotte Rampling co-star. Melancholia screened at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.~Perry Seibert
Minus a star because the CC bill arrived before the product. Not a good look, BB. I purchased this from BB because no one else, C******field included, had it in stock. It's the same price everywhere. I wish I had splashed a little more cash for a little more power, but at the price point I have no complaints about this reciever. It was a notable improvement over the older S*** reciever it replaced. If your budget permits only an entry-level purchase, Denon is the way to go.
This movie is fantastic. It takes the whole concept of the end of the world, and puts it in the backseat to focus on character and thematic analysis. Allegory is strong with this flick. Worth the watch. Give it a go if you like the "end of the world" sub-genre.
