Dancer in the Dark” is not like any other movie at the multiplex this week, or this year. It is not a “well made film,” is not in “good taste,” is not “plausible” or, for many people, “entertaining.” But it smashes down the walls of habit that surround so many movies. It returns to the wellsprings. It is a bold, reckless gesture. And since Björk has announced that she will never make another movie, it is a good thing she sings.
