Wil' Buckaroo Dafoe rocks the house. I've seen all of his work, and this is his best by far. Stay cool buddy!

I love Lars von Trier. His films are brave and challenging. So what if he's tough on his actors? So was Hitchcock--he make Kim Novak cry but VERTIGO is my favorite movie of all time.

Willem Dafoe rocks. Looking forward to seeing ANTICHRIST....

I think Lars von Triers is basically a cranky man, full of hate.

I have seen (and loved) many Foreman plays since "Paint" a loooong time ago & I'm going to see "Idiot Savant" tonight - didn't know who was in it and now am very interested to see Mr. Dafoe in this piece....was under the impression that Foreman was taking a break from stage pieces to make film and not to expect another play so soon. Dare a fan of surrealism say 'gooy goody'.....?
