Director Lars Von Trier’s 2004 film about a woman on the run from mobsters boasts a remarkable cast including Nicole Kidman, Lauren Bacall, Udo Kier, Ben Gazzara and James Caan. Von Trier mounts the film in a rigidly formalist style (the movie is presented in nine chapters) and the minimalist staging recalls the tradition of self-reflexive plays from Our Town to The Threepenny Opera. Critically acclaimed, the three hour film took a box office drubbing, due in no small part to having opened in only nine theaters.
