I had really no desire to see Melancholia the new film by Lars von Trier because the guy is such an ass and every time he opens his mouth he inserts his foot into it.  But when Kirsten Dunst won best actress at Cannes I was intrigued, and then when other smart folks whose opinions I value also mentioned the film, I decided to suck it up and try and see it which I was able to do last month when I was traveling in Berlin.
