Watch: “Lars Von Trier – The Deconstructionist”

The ever-divisive Lars Von Trier is re-examined by Lewis Bond in this thorough video essay, which examines the way the Danish provocateur breaks down rules about the forms of cinema and then recombines them. Comes with lots of context and an amusing press conference clip of Willem Dafoe explaining on-set improv in Antichristwhere he didn’t even know if he’d be naked or not before starting a scene.
