    In the film Dogville written and directed by Lars von Trier, there is no outdoor or indoor movie set in the traditional sense that they film on. Instead the director chose to use a large empty stage, set up like a large blueprint of the town of Dogville with each house individually named and outlined. The entirety of the movie is shot on this stage and it is never left once, much like a theatrical play but with no audience. There is also no musical score, and the only sound added to the film are

    pulled of in such a way that the final scene is filled with such raw power and emotion that it will leave you numb, cold and completely and utterly useless. This film uses the viewer like nothing you have ever seen. All of the cynics should take heed of Von Trier's style and commitment to pursuing human truth. If you want something different then you must see this film as it will challenge you to hold back your emotions and maybe even use them. It is a work of genius. Nothing short of a masterpiece. If

    them there are a few avenues they can explore. One of the most powerful is cinema. There are a number of great films that explore this subject in detail, and shed light on a perspective most Americans may not be familiar with. Two such films are Lars Von Trier’s portrait of everyday American life called Dogville, and the other is Francis Ford Coppola’s war epic Apocalypse Now.

    Lars von Trier is undoubtedly a polarizing filmmaker. His repertoire invokes a range of emotions from earnest avoidance to curious infatuation. He’s been pointed out as a purveyor of misogyny as he famously and deliberately places many of his females in rather unkind situations to say the least (i.e. the brain-searing climax in Antichrist). And his penchant to depict the uncomfortable and sometimes unfathomable has been interpreted as obscene and sensationalist for its own sake. And yet his work

    The performance of Shakespeare’s Othello by the Actors From The London Stage was not my first experience with theatre, but it was definitely a new one.

On my way to McCullough Theater, I envisioned Othello sharing many similarities with the production
