THREE-HANKY THURSDAY - DANCER IN THE DARK


This is what happens when you watch Dancer in the Dark.


Lars von Trier gives it right to you. You don't have to take it. He's a master manipulator, which is kind of to say he's a master filmmaker. Dancer in the Dark is an incredible film with an incredible performance by Bjork, and its concluding scene is incredibly moving. You don't know gut-wrenching cinema until you know Dancer in the Dark.
