Stars: Nicole Kidman, Paul Bettany
 

They say: Grace (Kidman) is on the run in Depression-era Colorado. The town of Dogville agrees to hide her if she helps out – but soon she’s in hot water…
 

We say: A love it/hate it offering from love him/hate him director Lars Von Trier. All the action occurs on a spartan stage with chalk outlines instead of buildings. Odd yet enthralling, with Kidman giving her best-ever performance.
 

Best bit: The brutal, blood-caked climax.
