    Thinking that I would soon have to trade in my DVR and thus lose all my recorded movies I decided to watch one that I had recorded more than three years ago but hadn't seen: Melancholia by the Danish writer-director Lars von Trier. As I survey von Trier's oeuvre , I see that I haven't seen much of it, but I believe I did see Europa , and perhaps even in the theatre.
