Obviously not close to "Dogville" (Kidman is out of the picture, and the novelty of the Brechtian approach is now long-gone), but still a complex, difficult film that is unafraid to pose questions about democracy.

Not a classic from von Trier, but not terrible either. Although not living up to the previous dogville, it has a certain charm. You certainly feel von Trier is trying to get a message across, but quite what that is, I'm not sure I know. It is thought provoking, and a lot easier to watch (in terms of turn-your-head-away violence) than some of his offerings, but doesn't pack the punch that I've come to expect.

von trier's shit-stirring goes a bit too far in this one, to the point where he really seems to lose sight of any thesis in exchange for "look how provocative i am!" on the plus side, bryce dallas howard is pretty good, if not as good as nicole kidman playing the same character

L. v Trier can make films in any genre, he is a master of concsious manipulation of styles, genres and reflexivity, here he says that in each historical reality we have a "setting", a "fiction" but fiction is never innocent, it tries to institutionalize itself like the black people and Grace, who beneath their morality always veil the will to power inscribed in their existences, but maybe this happens precisely because of our metaphyscial conditioning, maybe "fiction" is the solution.

A misstep coming down from "Dogville" but still potent and sprightly funny. Bryce Howard is no Nicole.

at one hand I kept feeling that whereas dogville was an amazing venture into a original way of story-telling with a subtle but extremely well-executed script, manderlay lacked the originality (for obvious reasons) and played in a different league with too obvious points being held high and not the same standards in terms of acting and overall quality to it. on the other hand I couldnt help but smiling at the brilliance of von trier while the ending credits were rolling.

Like a retread of Dogville only it's far less effective and rarely transcends its simple provocation. The racial emphasis seems somewhat misguided, perhaps even misinformed, but there are a few memorable scenes that make it worth viewing, especially for Von Trier fans.

Thankfully Ron Howard's daughter was cast in the lead. We wouldn't want a professional actress or one who looked good or anything. Why would we want that?

Contains some really provocative and nauseating moments, but the whole thing is so unbelievably similar to Dogville that I can't but help but compare the two and, well, this is no Dogville. It's an interesting idea, but the delivery is limp and exhausting. Now I'm not so bummed that he's never finished this trilogy.

Manderlay is one of the most dynamic films about race and change ever created.
xacviant
85T8
Widely damned, MANDERLAY is nearly as good as DOGVILLE--a bit less sprightly as cinema, but with a more challenging subject: the racial divide in American society. Von Trier satirizes white guilt, as the well-meaning Grace does not quite find her idealism rewarded. Bryce Dallas Howard, taking over the character, is right for this story; earnest, sympathetic, but just a bit overbearing. The rest of the cast is strong, and Von Trier's work--especially the powerful ending--is just as good as ever.
