I haven't seen Antichrist yet but I'm a big fan of his early films like Europa and Elements of Crime. Riget was also a blast. "Där borta Sverige hugget i granit. Här Danmark utskitet i lera." (Roughly "Over there Sweden cut in stone. Here Denmark crapped out in mud.") I guess you have to be Swede or Dane to really grasp what a up yours that sentence really is in a Danish film.
I couldn't stand Dancer in the dark though and I'm having a hard time with some his later films. I keep hearing rumours that they are having a hard time financing is upcoming film. Lets hope they sort it out soon because I would like to see The Erotic Man. I guess Antichrist didn't do as much money as everybody hoped...

I got Element of Crime as gift from one person who's girlfriend works at Criterion. He handed me bag on dvd's when I was in USA. Peeping Tom, Element of Crime, and more. Back then, didn't know most of these movies of the directors or stories behind them. Just filed them into "to be watched" shelves filled with movies yet to be seen. One day I though, well, lets check out this Element of Crime. And I was captured by the unique style of film. Very good one.
Peeping Tom, was already earlier notice to be masterpiece. And saying that, now, when the bag of dvds was handed to me already several years ago, I have couple I have not yet watched.
My movie purchasing is all about opportunity & chance. But my movie watching is all about the mood. I may buy DVD I think I'd like. But then watch it 2-3 years later.
Especially piles of "shock" asia violent action have grown big enough I have not bothered to buy anymore. Should watch some one day..

same here.
I download lots of stuff i can't buy easily and then if it is brilliant I buy it as soon I have a chance.
Play.com gives good stuff for cheap, to not mention supermarkets where you often find umbeliavable stuff for nothing.
I also buy/dl stuff and then wait for the right moment. I choose movies for directors, so if good I try to see all artist's flicks in one go.

It's my movie politics too

By the way, I want to suggest your the Alberto De Martino exorcist style movie with the same name of the last work of Von trier, Antichrist (L'anticristo).

The movie can look trash to someone but the plot and some scene are very extreme and enjoyable from filth people!

It has a direct inspiration from Fellini's "Le notti di Cabiria", when the whores goes toa  similar sanctuary to pray in order to be spared a life on the street.
Even more powerful.

I wrote a track on the "Hysterical" side of alleged exorcised people... but we go off topic.

Has anyone here seen Martyrs by Pascal Laugier? I don't think it's been mentioned before. Not the greatest French horror film but enjoyable. I had an issue with the way some of the effects were done but the overall premise is interesting.

It was in cinema in Lahti maybe.. 1 week? I had heard about it being "brutal", but that's all. I didn't know anything about it, so it was good experience. A lot of the film has to do with the surprise. If you know what's it's about, it's somewhere between nice & merely yawn worthy violence fetishism in modern style. As a kid, I would have probably liked things like Saw type "ultra violence". Nowadays often it seems like waste of time, unless has good story or interesting idea behind it. Martyrs has potential and idea and perhaps even nice ending. But something left me slightly cold. Like the idea, that am I watching some sort of Marilyn Manson music video? Just enough of some goth/scar/chains/hook suspension.... 
Just bring the trashy whores in t-shirts being cut open :P

martyrs is one of the best French flicks of the latest generation.

but as many of these falls in the "horror" category, which is fine by me, but I'd love more twisted masterpieces like the Belgian Calvaire who add something to cinema in general

Yeah, I had no idea what it was about when my friend showed it to me so the surprise element really kept me watching. Unfortunately I watched it on a poorly burned DVD-r so the poor quality detracted from it. Sometimes with those poor rips everything just looks that much more fake.

Calvaire was fantastic. The dancing bit in the bar...I had to rewind that a couple of times.

Martyrs was ok, but for French horror, Inside (À l'intérieur) was much better. Béatrice Dalle, something about that gap tooth grin that makes me swoon. Sheitan was fantastic as well. Vincent Cassel makes a very believable psychopath.
