“Chaos… reigns,” quoth that other talking movie fox in Antichrist, and he was pretty close to the mark. With graphic violence, mutilation and — scariest of all — a terrifying atmosphere of dread, Lars von Trier’s latest was both an unforgettable descent into art horror and a seriously controversial work. (Is there any other kind for the Danish director?) The film stars Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg as a grieving couple who retreat to the woods after the death of their son, where they soon find themselves at the mercy of an evil force… which may even be the woman herself.
