The Five Obstructions

Of the many provocations Lars von Trier has delivered over the years, "The Five Obstructions" might be his most satisfying. The 2003 documentary might not be his most well known title, but if you're a fan of the director, you'll want to catch up with it quick.

The film dives into the creative process of filmmaking with a unique twist, as it follows Lars von Trier's opportunity to work with idol Jørgen Leth on a most unusual experiment: Leth will remake his celebrated 1967 film "The Perfect Human" five times, each time with a different challenge set forth by von Trier that will force Leth to approach it differently and find a whole new set of creative solutions to re-think how he will tell his story. It's a neat concept that's pretty entertaining all around and now we've got a way for you to check it out at home, with copies of the film on DVD for some lucky readers.

To win, email us with your name, address and tell us what movie you'd like to see Lars von Trier remake. Good luck!

"The Five Obstructions" hits DVD on April 22nd via Kino Lorber.

Update: Contest is closed, winners will be contacted by email.
