After a period of reflection I've decided that I liked this film. It is definitely not easy-viewing, with a crawling pace that simultaneously drives you insane with boredom and suspense. A tricky, indescribable phenomenon. Kirsten's portrayal of severe depression was powerful and everyone around her delivered exceptional performances. Melancholia is such a beautiful film from start to finish and is rounded out by a haunting score. It is an all out experience that shouldn't be missed.
