Well, this is the most head-explodingly film nerdy news I’ve heard in a while. Weirdo Danish director Lars Von Trier is planning on doing another take on The Five Obstructions, and this time the subject of his torture is going to be film legend Martin Scorsese. For those that don’t know, The Five Obstructions was a 2003 film project in which Von Trier challenged filmmaker Jorgen Leth to remake his 1967 short film The Perfect Human five times, each time with a different constrictive rule (or obstruction) in place. Even for a guy who made something like Antichrist, this is a pretty weird idea, but it turned out to be hugely interesting. It used obstructions like the remake must be an animation, or it must contain no shots longer than 12 frames, or it must be made in the most miserable place in the world. It’s hard to explain how things developed without seeing it for yourself, maybe you should just go ahead and watch the original on Netflix to get up to speed.
