the five obstructions

, Thursday, December 16

I guess I am on a Lars von Trier kick. 'The Five Obstructions' is one of my favorite documentaries. It is extremely powerful and done so well.

Lars von Trier asks Danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth to remake his 1967 film 'The Perfect Human'. He challenges Leth to make 5 new versions of the movie under increasingly difficult constraints. The results are fascinating, powerful and strange. It is a full length movie, but worth the watch. It takes you through the hurdles and excitement of the creative process from beginning to end.

I am embedding it here, but you can also see it on
hulu or rent it on netflix.
