Dogville is the circadian folktale story about a stranger being accepted and aided by the benevolence of a community except…with a twist: It’s actually realistic.

But where the dirty subjection of pragmatism lies, another theme flourishes. Dogville’s finale strikes its audience in the bowels with an excruciatingly awakening twist that sheds aggressive amounts of light relating to the sewage-pail of a world we live in.
