Director: Lars Von Trier;
FiC Rating: 4.5;
Why FiC Recommends:
1. The plot of Element of Crime runs around a cop obsessively pursuing a serial killings suspect. But the screenplay is so bizarre that it’s difficult to follow what’s happening. Neo-noir done well.
2. This is the debut movie of Lars Von Trier (LVT) and also the 1st chapter of the ‘Europa’ trilogy.
3. If you haven’t explored LVT’s filmography yet, this is the best film to start with.
