Lars Von Triers’ oddball and often surreal combo of melodrama and psychological horror (punctuated with brief moments of hardcore sex and violence) screens for one week. Gore-hounds will likely be bored waiting for the bloodshed, which arrives mostly at the end. Art house audiences will be entranced and then shocked (as were critics at Cannes).
