Kierkegaard will drive anyone a little crazy.

Carl Th Dreyer's 1955 outing Ordet, as adaptation of a play by Kaj Munk, is hid only film that was both a critical and financial success, and it's accolades are well deserved. Full of exquisite long shots -- Dreyer is well on his way to believing that a film could be made in seven or eight scenes (we'll talk more about that next week) -- and challenging questions, but no real answers. While that could be a problem, in this case it's pretty dang intriguing in a good way.
