Dogville is not a cry of rage against America but against all mankind.

Nothing short of breathtaking and mind-provoking. A brilliant tale of intellectual awakening!

At least this is something that I have achieved this week that makes me happy and contented, especially my new phone just took a dip in a pool of vodka yesterday night.

!!!: Can anyone get me the premiere tix for Cold Mountain on Wednesday 10/02/04

Modes of payment negotiable. I really am very desperate. VERY desperate.
I didn't really notice the Biblical allegory, but I thought of it more a comment on the nature of human beings/America...

Though the dog being called Moses could also mean something hor...
it was set in america, but americans dislike this movie because they are oversensitive.
notice Grace came to Dogville : Jesus came to Jerusalem
She gave them help, love and care : Just like Jesus
She was exploited accused and abused even though everyone know she's innocent: Jesus went through the same
And this is the turn of the story --> Grace, just like Jesus as depicted in the Bible, accepted all accusations. HOWEVER, she decided that mankind are just NOT worth all her pain and suffering when she finally realised that her work is not going to make any differences.

Human beings will never be satisfied as they become more and more greedy.
Solution: The old testament. wipe out the bad people i.e. dogville
Yeah I could figure out the allegory once someone told me that it was there. But when I watched it the notion didn't come to me... I only saw it as an allegory to the inherent evil-ness of human beings... :)
