Within the first 30 minutes, was telling myself to turn this off. Kept watching for some stupid reason. Wish I had listened to myself. Awful, pointless movie .

This may well be about depression,and the planet Melancholia an all too obvious reference, but my sense is that Melancholia is real, and the problem for most people in the film is that they can't be moved from their self-centered lives to see doom ahead.

I agree. Thanks for standing up for LVT! After what he did to Bjork in Dancer in the Dark, he's on my "Ick, but watch through your fingers..." list, along with Woodie Allen. This is one of his good ones, with an important message for all of us.
