"The Five Obstructions"
2004
Directed by Lars von Trier/Jorgen Leth

Notorious director Lars von Trier (Dogville, Breaking the Waves) dons the devil's mask and puts one of his idols, Danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth, to the test in this ingenious pseudo-documentary. Calling himself the Obstructor, von Trier challenges Leth to remake his 1967 short, The Perfect Human, five times and sets bizarre, arbitrary constraints to limit Leth's creativity, including shooting in locales around the world, using animation, shooting one film with no shot longer than 12 frames, and more. A brilliant examination of the nature of cinema, art and the creation process. "Watching The Five Obstructions is at once like witnessing two chess masters playing dominoes and like spying on a series of therapy sessions" (A.O. Scott, The New York Times).  90 minutes.
 

Guest Comments

From:  "Noe Coward"

The film is about a director who remakes another directors film. The remaking of this piece is made all the more difficult by the insertion of..five obstructions. This film is a documentary which chronicles the difficulties encountered when trying to create a film to the specifications of the demanding director.

"Abraham's Valley"
1993
Directed by Manoel de Oliveira

A young woman who possesses hypnotically powerful beauty enters into a loveless marriage with a wealthy doctor. Her vows do not prevent her from passionate explorations with others, but ultimately she cannot find spiritual nourishment in this world. "Subtle, elegant, enigmatic, this movie by the veteran Oliveira exercises a powerful grip...echoes the satiric irony of late Bunuel and the secretive minimalism of Bresson" (Wally Hammond, Time Out Film Guide). Also known as Abraham Valley and In the Valley of Abraham. Portuguese with English subtitles.  187 minutes.
