I was too afraid to watch this directors last movie, Antichrist, for a number of reasons. This one looks bearable. It looks like it’s an uncomfortable character drama set in the shadow of an upcoming apocalypse.
The cast is simultaneously bad and fantastic. I don’t know who invited Kiefer Sutherland, ugh. And Kirsten Dunst isn’t my favorite either… although she’s in a number of good movies. I should probably give in and start liking her. On the other hand they also cast Charlotte Gainsbourg, Charlotte Rampling (who made Never Let me Go wonderfully intense), Alexander Skarsgard and his dad, and also John Hurt.
