i will never forget the first time I saw the movie Dancer in the Dark starring Bjork! I can remember it vividly; I was on a trial date with a Los Angeles DJ and we picked the movie because we both liked Bjork. Little did we know that we'd exit the theater sobbing like we had just witness a live execution.

While naysayers do often dismiss and label the movie as boring, long winded and depressing, in my opinion it is poignant, beautifully filmed and a delight to watch. If you haven't seen the movie then check out the trailer below. If you have no intention of seeing the movie and want to see Bjork at her best then check out the second YouTube clip. Be advised, the scene is a spoiler but the song that Bjork sings at the conclusion of the scene is heart wrenching!
