Antichrist (2009)

Quick Synopsis: Couple's child falls to his death while they are preoccupied with sex. They depart to Eden, a cabin deep in the woods for therapy, but Nature turns on them. It doesn't go very well after that. Also, foxes are apparently anarchists.

Nothing like a little genital mutilation to start the year off. Still, even with the disturbing images conjured here, it is one of the more beautifully shot films I have seen in quite some time (especially the Prologue). While equally critical of both feminism and the modern obsession with instant gratification therapy, it is ultimately a bit too abstract and lacking in any true insight.
