    Professor Burrell English 242 October 12th, 2017 Analysis of Lars von Trier’s “Dogville” Lars Von Trier's film “Dogville” is an interesting European spin on how America is viewed.

    As Dogville begins, it is clear that the film is unlike any other. The initial scene opens to a bird’s eye view of a mining town in the 1930’s. Right away, the film demonstrates a break from the idea of realism, and displays the minimalistic and expressionistic approach that mirrors the viewing of a live play. The town itself is very small, and each building or home in Dogville is displayed by a chalk outline, with the descriptor of each building inside. Inside each dwelling is housed only essential

    process I was able to look at the refugees and emigrants in order to better understand what it mean to be human and what other people think about it.

    we would still see a compatible trait that these two films have. Lars von Trier has created some of the craziest and darkest films of time. Dogville and Antichrist are defiantly on Lars von Trier’s crazy train. The definition of losing someone or something is definitely an imprint that Lars von Trier makes perfectly clear.

Unfortunately, “Dogville” is mostly a film for entertainment and the distancing effect
