Von Trier's huge, beastly experiment in form. Shot on studio stage sets in homage to the BBC dramas of the 60s and 70s, 'Dogville' tells the slowly disintegrating story of Grace (Kidman) - an impoverished woman who stumbles into a small, isolated, turn of the century pioneer town to ask if the locals will take her in. Of course they're wary at first but Grace proves a tonic to all as she helps blind Jack McKay (Gazzara) around the house and baby-sits and cleans for the locals. A remarkable and unique achievement - well worth the challenge of sitting through.
