It's weird by misogynist Lars Von Trier certainly meets the criteria! I guess, it takes all types!

It's so weird that a director that writes nearly all of his central roles for women and who's directed not one, but three brilliant performances that went on to win the Cannes prize for Best Actress, is disdained as a misogynist. Ree is right -- he's probably one of the most important writer-directors for women right now.

Justice and Clare talk about Justine's depression and her nightmare, the wedding, the end of the world and Justine's newly gained powers.
Justine also tells her named mother that she is scared.
