    One of my all time favorites and quite controversial, should be interesting to see a consensus with this one…
    Feel free to rank them. 

    It says only ten options so I couldn´t fit “the five obstructions” and “the boss of it all”, though I have a feeling nobody will think those are the best. And for those who´ve seen “nymphmaniac” you can add your vote in the comments, same for both former(s).

    I personally have a really hard time ranking these, as I love them all, even his weakest. Except for the first few, I think they shift around every time I go back to some of them….So this one is approximate, not that well thought:

    1. Breaking the waves
    2. Dancer in the dark
    3. Manderlay
    4. Dogville
    5. Europa
    6. Antichrist
    7. Melancholia
    8. The idiots
    9. The element of crime
    10. Epidemic
    11. The boss of it all

    Love the five obstructions, but given that its a documentary I didn´t put it among the others, but honorable mention. Haven´t seen nymphmaniac.

    For me, it’s ‘Melancholia’. That movie really struck a nerve with me, and it was my favorite film of 2011. Every single performance is brilliant, especially a never better Kirsten Dunst who should’ve won the Oscar, and she wasn’t even nominated! Visually, as with pretty much all of his films, it’s stunning, and despite it’s subject matter, I’ve seen it all the way through at least 3 times already. I think it’s haunting and beautiful.

    Melancholia (one of my favorites of ’11, along with ToL, Shame, Warrior, Drive, and Take Shelter), Dogville, and Breaking the Waves are his best to me. I appreaciate all his films on some level (usually visually), even Antichrist which I couldn’t stand.

    I took a look and voted for the film which least made me want to kill myself.

    Melancholia was my favorite film of 2011. I haven’t seen Nymphomaniac yet.

    Melancholia is brilliant. Kirsten Dunst should have won the Oscar in 2011 or at least get a nomination.

    Antichrist on the other hand bothers me. I know it has a very deep meaning (which I totally got in my first and only watch) but the way Lars chose to handle it… Just plain awful. It was torture porn at its very worst.

    Never loved a single movie of his. His worst movies are pretty insufferable. Haven’t seen Nymphomaniac, volume 2 or Manderlay. I’ll rank the movies I at least semi-liked.

    1. Melancholia
    2. Breaking the Waves
    3. Dogville
    4. Europa
    5. Nymphomanic Volume 1
    6. Dancer in the Dark

    Dancer in the Dark is, by far, my favorite.  I also love Dogville and Breaking the Waves.

    I really didn’t like Melancholia that much.  I thought it was a bit of a snooze..

    I’ve never particularly liked Von Trier, and The Idiots and Antichrist are still among my least favourite films. Dogville, Manderlay and Melancholia were tedious but interesting. I haven’t seen element of Crime or Epidemic. I don’t think I ‘understood’ Dancer in the Dark and I was simply confused. That really just leaves Breaking the Waves and Europa, and that’s a hard choice, Europa would be my favourite, but I think Breaking the Waves is the best. It says “best” so I went with Waves.

    Breaking the Waves is my favourite of the ones I’ve seen, worthy of comparisons to Dreyer, but I really need to sit down and watch Dancer in the Dark. I think I have it recorded on TV. Dogville was fascinating but I need to see it again. Also like Melancholia despite (or perhaps because of) its absurdities and longueurs. I despise Antichrist though; its opening scene is ridiculous and pure kitsch, after which it got interesting for 20 minutes only to lapse into tedium interspersed with tired shock tactics. And dont get me started on the talking fox.

    Dogville is perfect. The ending credit sequence is embarassing, but that misgiving doesn’t affect my opinion.
