"Lars von Trier was the wunderkind of European cinema in the 1990s, a guiding light of the Dogma 95 movement, and a film-maker who, more than any of his peers, divided critics and spectators. In keeping with Dogma principles, The Idiots (1998) was shot with a hand-held camera, without ornamental music and on real locations. Set in a commune, the film sparked great controversy for showing a group of young people in search of their 'inner idiots'. Yet it moved many in its patent concern for showing people in primal states and the tragedies that precipitate and result from those states." "As well as being a Dogma film, The Idiots is quintessential von Trier and, in John Rockwell's view, perhaps his most powerful work. It forms a trilogy - the 'Good Woman' trilogy - with Breaking the Waves (1996) and Dancer in the Dark (2000). Rockwell shows how The Idiots relates to the other two films in addition to von Trier's celebrated early work in Danish television and his foray into directing Wagner's Ring cycle at the Bayreuth Festival. The result is a rich and illuminating interpretation of the key work of one of the most fascinating and misunderstood film-makers of recent years."--BOOK JACKET
