Melancholia | Opening Sequence

Posted: January 25th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Cinema

Images from the majestic opening sequence to Lars von Trier’s Melancholia, the rich texture of Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde prelude, a sweeping backdrop to the slow, ambling march towards apocalypse.

It is all lovely terror, lush CGI, studio-lit nature as artifice, slow and heavy symbolism.
