Artsy, documentary, experimental, pretentious....These are the few adjectives that came to mind as I finished watching this film. I kind of forced myself to finish it because of Lars Von Trier's involvement. But in the end I was not entertained by it. For example, the phrase 'the perfect human', and other similar terms, were used over and over again in the most meaningless fashion. This film is only for hardcore art-house film fans and film students only. If you are not one, don't waste your time.
