Cannes Film Festival Scandal Around Antichrist

Seems that this year's Cannes Film Festival entry by past "Golden Palm" winner Lars van Trier has created the first real scandal this year. The press screening was accompanied by laughther, hisses and booing at the end - there are even reports that at least one reporter fainted during paticularily graphic scenes. Not many reviews seem to be out yet, but what is out is pretty devastating - "appaling" is a mild adjective, and there are predictions that this movie could end van Trier's career - pretty unlikely given that the careers of past generators of Cannes Film Festival scandals seem to be doing just fine.

Update: Variety review now available!
