I watched Lars von Trier’s Melancholia last night.  I suppose it wasn’t quite what I was expecting, but I still enjoyed it.  I thought this image connected with the film a little bit.  Maybe facially the woman looks somewhat similar to Kirsten Dunst, but more so due to the planetary nature of it.  It is very beautiful.  I love all the detail, it works with the image and doesn’t distract from the woman’s face, but adds that nice astronomical feel.  While it doesn’t quite exude the-end-of-the-world, it does have a certain sadness and hopelessness to it.  I am quite captivated.

        Not to forget Kristen Dunst lying naked under Moon/Melancholia light. Pure genius at it’s very best. Though visually stunning for all, one has to be very deeply immersed into the meaning and flow of the story to grasp an understanding of her possible motivation for doing it.
