MELANCHOLIA (Lars von Trier, 2011)

There is a sequence early on, where Kirsten Dunst flees her wedding on a golf buggy and pees in the middle of a golf course, staring up at the superplanet that will be obliterating Earth within days. It's hilarious, jarring and entrancing all at once. You have no idea whether von Trier is mocking you or reaching out to you on a core level. Probably both.
