Grotesque Anatomy

  Another Public Service Announcement:
It's really for the best if you ignore the people who didn't like Dogville, which is easily one of the best movies I've ever seen.

I do, however, wish I knew how people can watch a movie in which disturbing behavior occurs and, because they find the film hits too close to home on some level, deduce that that reprehensible behavior is being endorsed--particularly in an oeuvre like von Trier's, in which characters who treat women horribly are inevitably punished for that treatment. (You want to see a movie in which gratuitous misogyny is immorally played for thrills? Rent just about any slasher/horror flick.)
