I really didn't want to have to worry about throwing up in a Von Trier movie.

"Von Trier co-founded the Dogme 95 movement, which among other things decreed that filmmakers should use only natural light and sound, no sets, and hand-held cameras, but has strayed from the manifesto in later films."

At least he stuck to it in Dogville, huh? :-)

Has anyone seen a Von Trier produced film called "The Impediments"?

I don't know, fake donkey goo can be pretty nauseating...

Maybe they killed Donkey Boy.

Maybe that's why Julien Donkey-Boy had no donkeys in it. I always wondered about that.

I think Von Trier has left others with less imagination to wallow in rigid adherence to Dogme, while he has gone on doing whatever he feels like doing, gosh!

Another movie to look forward to this year. I'll probably see it on video though.

Maybe the Donkey was on it's last legs anyway....

But if he doesn't use the donkey footage, then wouldn't killing that donkey be a waste of its life? There's some irony here.

I sort of enjoyed JDB. The guy playing the retarded son is rather convincing, and Werner Herzog is hilarious. The ending is dark and jarring, kind of a Dancer in the Dark effect. If you don't like bizarre, cinema verite family dramas, (or Chloe Sevigny) don't bother with it. But I found it worth my time.

He was putting Peta on. It was two death row inmates in a donkey suit....

That's so wrong. Everybody knows the only people allowed to kill animals are PETA themselves.
