IFC Films has purchased the American distribution rights to Lars Von Trier`s polarizing film Antichrist. IndieWIRE.com reports that IFC will release the same controversial cut of the film that recently screened at the Cannes Film Festival. In the movie, Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg play a couple who retreat to a wooded cabin to overcome the grief of losing their only child. No Von Trier film has ever grossed more than $6 million in the United States, but his avant-garde movies (Dogville, Breaking the Waves) are notable for their explicit realism. Read More

The friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish reunites with her loved ones, and everyone learns a few things about the true meaning of family along the way.
While doing a blocking run-through on Wild at Heart (1990) (for the scene in which Dafoe's character threatens to rape Laura Dern's character), Dafoe playfully sang his lines. Director David Lynch loved this, and wanted Dafoe to actually sing his lines in the scene, when they shot it. The idea did not actually go through, however.
To date he has shot 18 films in Europe. 
I always like to mix it up. It`s like anything. If you`re eating pasta for a week, eventually, you crave something else. A balanced diet of different roles and different stories and movies - I think it`s the way to stay healthy artistically and career wise. It does a funny thing because you`re not refining one way of seeing you. That`s one way to have a career. You can make a persona, corner a market, and make yourself almost a thing. You can use that and that can be interesting iconographical but I still am that actor who likes to bend myself to the material rather than find material to support some idea of who I am or some persona that I`ve made, or some mask that I`ve made. - On his career.
One of the pleasures of being an actor is quite simply taking a walk in someone else`s shoes. And when I look at the roles I`ve played, I`m kind of amazed at all the wonderful adventures I`ve had and the different things I`ve learned.
