Scandinavia's foremost living auteur and the catalyst of the Dogme95 movement, Lars von Trier is arguably world cinema's most confrontational and polarizing figure. Willfully devastating audiences, Trier has cultivated an insistently transnational cinema, taking inspiration from sources that range from the European avant-garde to American genre films. This volume provides a stimulating overview of Trier's career while focusing on his more recent work, including the controversial Gold Heart Trilogy ( Breaking the Waves, The Idiots, and Dancer in the Dark ), the as-yet unfinished USA Trilogy ( Dogville and Manderlay ), and individual projects such as the comedy The Boss of It All and the incendiary horror psychodrama Antichrist.
