"I didn't think it was obscene - I just thought it was total nonsense" - Mark Kermode, BBC Radio 5 Live

Lars von Trier's breakthrough Dogme film. It is about people pretending to be disabled, but in Mark Kermode's view it backfires so badly that Lars put in 10 minutes of hardcore pornography just to pep things up. This annoyed Mark so much that he started shouting abuse in French at the screen during the premiere in Cannes in 1998. He was swiftly ejected, but at least he had a story for Radio 1.
