Fight Club for idiots: Rebellious group, enig- and charismatic leader, a plan that goes too far. I love Trier as much as the next guy (maybe even more), but the movie fails at arguing why idiocy is worthwhile. An example: Suddenly the leader decides on having group sex. Now, I love pornography as much as the next guy (maybe even more), but what purpose is served? The Idiots feels like a bi-product of a failed social experiment, which in some ways, it is. And there's no reason for it being Dogma.

Whatever "truth" is being searched for here does not exist, and attempting to search for a truth in a medium built on lies and manipulation is futile. Perhaps that's intentional, but that does not make this overly-edited mess any more enjoyable. It buries any positive aspects beneath annoying characters, terrible camerawork, and tedious attempts to provoke. Dogme 95 is a joke, and not a very funny one at that.

This movie invesitgates the nature of avant-garde movements and groups of people like hippies or bohemes who ciriticize the norms of society and performatively offer alternatives. But they're bound to failure, because by nature they're subversive and ephemeral and if they institutionalize themselves they'd end up becoming the things they ciriticize. By the way Karen as a character is a Trierian ascetic and prophetic guy, who tries to extract meaning from suffering like all characters of Trier.

Pretty idiotic, which was the point I guess. Von Trier can do better though.
