(The Idiots)

Review, by David Sterritt

Official Site

Lars von Trier spins out a fable: a group of young people organize themselves as The Idiots. They devotedly explore the concept of idiocy, attracting Karen to their game. It ceases to be a game at initiation, where she is tested among her family for complete idiocy.
