Last I checked, Anti-Christ is playable on Netflix.

I saw Antichrist projected at the Toronto Film Fest last summer and thought it was stunning visually. Then I found that the content stuck with me for weeks after. That makes it a winner in my books.

Me n' my gal dressed up as He and She for Halloween. I'd post a picture, but a) it's my first post and b) everyone here seems to have hated the movie.

America being the Great Satan and all, I watched Antichrist over the 4th.  Except for the silly prologue, I kinda liked it. It had elements of the kind of Bergman-esque horror that interests me. I'll probably be mulling it over for a while, even if its ideas are kind of muddled and probably not that interesting outside the context of the film.  Funny that it made Ebert and a couple other critics practically lose their minds when it premiered.

Gotta say though, I averted my eyes during the Big Snip. Wonder if that kinda means I didn't really see the movie at all.

I think you were wise to avert your eyes during the Big Snip, Chris L. It was a win-win: you knew what happened and you didn't have that image seared in your brain.

I still think if the dudes from Old Joy stumbled upon She and He it would have made for a better movie. Maybe they could have all had a hot bath together and no one would have lost their genitals.
See God, Kai

Oddly, the snip bothered me less than his blood fountain...

Both instances of genital mutilation were profoundly disturbing. I guess I don't go to movies to be challenged. I see no redeeming qualities in this story with the exception of some interesting cinematography, a few beautiful shots.

I'm still wondering if that's even physically possible in those circumstances.

NEW DEBATE!
