Lars Von Trier's stunning debut film is the story of Fisher, an exiled ex-cop who returns to his old beat to catch a serial killer with a taste for young girls. Influenced equally by Hitchcock and science fiction, Von Trier boldly reinvents expressionist style for his own cinematic vision of a post-apocalyptic world. Shot in shades of sepia, with occasional, startling flashes of bright blue, "The Element of Crime" combines dark mystery and operatic sweep to yield a pure celluloid nightmare. First part of Von Trier's "E-Trilogy", followed by "Epidemic" (1987) and "Europa" (1991).
