Movie Review: 'The Five Obstructions'

Danish directors Lars von Trier and Jorgen Leth team up on The Five Obstructions, a 90-minute rumination on the nature of cinema and creativity. Von Trier challenged Leth, his mentor, to remake Leth's 1967 film The Perfect Human five different ways. Los Angeles Times film critic Kenneth Turan has a review.
