Jesus Turns into the Antichrist
I’m sure many of you are familiar with director Lars von Trier. He was a popular director on our list of 99 Movies that Will Kill You, not because his movies aren’t any good, but because his movies are capable of providing the impetus for folks to jump into a ravine. Watch one of his movies, say Dancer in the Dark, and your soul is leaking through your eyelids. Watch a double feature, which might include, say, Breaking the Waves, and you might find yourself with a straight razor in a bathtub full of your own blood.
Lars von Trier’s latest is Antichrist, which stars Willem Dafoe, who ironically once played Jesus in Martin Scorsese’s The Last Temptation of Christ. Antichrist is about a grieving couple who retreats to their cabin ‘Eden’ in the woods, hoping to repair their broken hearts and troubled marriage. But nature takes its course and things go from bad to worse.
It’s not immediately clear from the trailer, but I’m guessing that Dafoe is the Antichrist. And the shot near the end of the trailer where Dafoe is making love to his wife, played by Charlotte Gainsbourg, on a pile of dead bodies suggests as much. I’d say the trailer is moderately NSFW, as you very nearly get a glimpse of Dafoe’s Satanic ass.
