Wildly inventive supernatural soap opera.
I am becoming fascinated with Lars von Trier. After seeing ‘Zentropa’, ‘Breaking the Waves’ and ‘The Idiots’, each movie different from the last, and each a minor masterpiece. Now I’ve watched another piece in the puzzle of his career, the fantastic (in all meanings of the word!) mini-series ‘The Kingdom’, and I’m once again hugely impressed! I can’t think of any contemporary American or British director with his range or inventiveness.
‘The Kingdom’ concerns a large and sophisticated Danish hospital which is being haunted by ghosts. The doctors who work there are an eccentric bunch at the best of times, and things get progressively weirder. ‘The Kingdom’ successfully juggles humour, mystery, horror, soap opera and surrealism in a way not seen since ‘Twin Peaks’. I found it to be compulsive viewing and can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel, which sadly is nowhere to be found in Australia.
‘The Kingdom’ I’m sure will one day be regarded as a television classic. It’s THAT good. I loved it, and hopefully you will too. Hats off to von Trier!
Atmospheric Arthouse “Almost Dogme” Series About A Haunted Hospital
Lars von Trier’s weird, crazy TV show about a haunted hospital with an amazing atmosphere and a great cast. Shows that you don’t need a lot of money as long as you’ve got great actors, good writing and the perfect location. Shot entirely on an ordinary video camera, this is “no budget” Arthouse cinema. The second part of the series is just as good, and I only wish we would have gotten the originally planned third part as well, but the untimely death of the lead actor sadly prevented this from ever happening. Still, let’s enjoy what we got. 9 stars out of 10.
