In "Frozen Flows in von Trier’s Oeuvre", Torben Grodal argues that his theory of mental flow and its aesthetic impact may be used to explain Trier’s oeuvre. Grodal first briefly sketches how art films in general – Trier’s films in particular – are characterised by a block of that mental flow from perception to action that is typical of mainstream films by means of stylistic and narrative devices. He then argues that Trier’s childhood traumas and Jewish background made such frozen forms especially attractive. Grodal further analyses Trier’s oeuvre chronologically and shows how the films become increasingly narrative on the way. He analyses how Trier uses elements from mainstream cinema framed by art film techniques, for instance metafictional devices, optical distortions, handheld cameras, and experiments with lighting filters. Grodal also explains why Trier often uses symbols of gigantic social systems like the third Reich, Europe, or USA to portray individuals that have become victims of destiny, and how dealing with and portraying normal interpersonal relations is a project that controls much of Trier’s work.
