Melancholia is easily the best, most disturbing, most engaging, most visually beautiful film I have ever seen. Even though it is over two hours in length I went back and watched the slow motion opening montage just to let the images and their meaning sink in. The first half hour was more than a little aggravating as I waited for the story to make sense. When it finally clicked with me I was completely riveted and know I will watch it again soon. Wow. The highest praise I can ever have for a movie is when I find myself wishing I could watch it for the first time once more. And I do wish I could experience Melancholia again for the first time. Since I can't, you do it for me, okay?
