Once upon a time, FADER made a few film issues, the last of which was graced by the beautiful visage of Charlotte Gainsbourg, then about to appear as the girlfriend of our daydreams in The Science of Sleep. Three years later, she has moved on from quirky Gondry heroine to highly disturbed horror queen in Antichrist, directed by former Dogme 95er Lars Von Trier. The plot is described by AP as "a psychotic woman torturing her husband and mutilating herself during a trip to the woods intended as a healing sojourn." She recently won Best Actress at Cannes for her role opposite Willem Dafoe, which is great because we plan never to watch this movie unless someone we really want to hook up with makes us (even then probably not), so our compliments of her acting would've sounded bullshit. Congrats on doing whatever you did in this, Charlotte. Here's to Dafoe being the antichrist!
