AntichristLars von Trier’s Antichrist screened this week at the Rialto in Dunedin, as part of the Film Festival.  I was sitting upstairs in the theatre, and during the final (somewhat challenging) scenes, I heard a woman’s shoes racing down the wooden first-floor aisle (presumably with a woman inside them), in a desperate attempt to get out of there. This was followed by an interjection by some dag who called out, “You run, girl, run!”

The crowd laughed nervously, and the tension was broken… just a little.
