Director: Lars von Trier
Stars: Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland
Indie Cred: Independently financed, because, hey, what Hollywood studio is gonna give Lars von Trier money?
Why it's worth your while: Arguably the best film of 2011, von Trier's masterpiece depicts an end of the world scenario through a fractured family's eyes. Most importantly, von Trier doesn't skimp out on the apocalyptic end. The visual effects are powerful, realistic and haunting. You've never seen anything like it.
