Want to see von Trier's Melancholia Early? Here's How.

Posted By on Wed, Oct 12, 2011 at 3:23 PM


Except for maybe Tree of Life, I don't think there has been a more talked about film this year in general, but certainly on this blog. Since it famously bowed to both acclaim and controversy at Cannes earlier in the year, it's been hard to wait for it to make it to US theaters.

But you don't want to wait two or three months to see if Orlando will maybe maybe maybe have a theater that maybe picks it up for two weeks?  You want to freely masturbate to the Kirsten Dunst's nude scene without worrying about being seen?

Well, if you have Brighthouse, Plaststation, Xbox or AppleTV, just watch it on your TV.

Melancholia is a grand visual experience, an exploration of depression, apathy, neuroses and family comparability all in the face of a rogue planet named Melancholia that is on a collision course with Earth. Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg both deserve the praise they've gotten for it, though it must be miserable indeed to be inside of Lars von Trier's head. The film runs a little over 2 hours and is broken up into chapters, much like his other films.

It's available on these platforms:

AT&T, Cablevision, Charter, Comcast, Cox, Insight, RCN, Time Warner, Verizon, VUDU

Also availble for rent from:, iTunes, Xbox, Playstation
