[02] Film. Melancholia by Lars von Trier.

The most beautifully rendered end of the world?

Never mind the plot. The visuals were just hypnotic to watch. The images of both Moon and Melancholia illuminating the palatial garden are mesmerising. There is also an amazing visual atmospheric metamorphose as the telluric planet approaches the earth. The colours of scenes are changing to more desaturated and almost frosted turquoise, which in combination with the setting of the palace creates the atmosfere of a fairy tale - apocalypse.
