Movie of the day: "Dancer in the Dark"

Bjork is amazing. Why she didn't win best actress is beyond me, and why every casting agent in town isn't clamoring for her is also unbelievable. She is not only powerful in this role as a woman going blind, who will go to the ultimate length to care for and protect her son, she is a tour de force.

This is a gut wrenching film that grabs you about a third of the way in and refuses to let you go.

Some scenes were shot with an array of 100 video cameras.

Written and directed by Lars von Trier, cinematography by Robby Muller.
