A Cannes' insider states " Went to see it tonight, and there are definitely rough spots in the film. However, in the end it's imagery is etched into my brain and it IS uncompromising like few other movies in the world. And not because it is ugly but because of the vast beauty in ugliness when Trier is directing. This film will stand. It will be a favourite topic at media science at the university. And years from now, it will be a classic."
