ReviewSource Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide
Review When the dons of the Dogme 95 movement team up, you just know that mischief is going to be made. And so it proves with Dear Wendy, a provocative pot-shot at US gun culture directed by Thomas Vinterberg (Festen) and written by Lars Von Trier. By turns amusing, unsettling and exciting, it centres on a band of misfits led by Dick (Jamie Bell) who form a firearm fetishists' club called The Dandies. A heady mix of allegory and anarchy, it could be a companion piece to Von Trier's Dogville - only this time, they've splashed some cash on the sets.

Review Thomas Vinterberg's Dear Wendy is a tedious exercise in style, intended as a meditation on guns and violence in America but more of a meditation on itself, the kind of meditation that invites the mind to stray. Mine strayed to the fact that the screenplay is by Vinterberg's Danish mentor Lars von Trier, and the movie, although filmed on three-dimensional sets, feels as artificial and staged as Von Trier's Dogville (2003). Once again, a small group of people inhabit a small space, can all see each other out the window and live in each other's pockets
