* LeFilmArtistique: Lars nearly always has a strong Narrative, and he tends to go lighter on the [[{{Surrealism}} more]] [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible esoteric]] stereotypes of this trope, but he gets enough mileage out of the CameraTricks, [[TrueArtIsAngsty maudlin subject matter]] and [[RefugeInAudacity controversy]] associated with the trope for three directors.

* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad: He's criticized the American media for this, saying that political correctness was another way of saying "fear of talking."

* CreatorBreakdown: A rather nasty bout of Depression was the main impetus for his aptly named "Depression Trilogy": ''Film/{{Antichrist}}'', ''Film/{{Melancholia}}'' and ''Film/{{Nymphomaniac}}''. ''Melancholia'' is about a woman with crippling depression, [[WriteWhatYouKnow mirroring the director's]].



* MisanthropeSupreme: Lars may be this. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Alternately]], the misanthropy of his work may just be a stylistic device borne out of RuleOfDrama. [[TakeAThirdOption Or]] he may just be a {{troll}}. It's difficult to be sure.
* MissingEpisode: ''Wasington'' [sic], the third film in The "USA, Land of Opportunity" Trilogy. von Trier's depression forced him to make ''Film/{{Antichrist}}'' instead. Jury's out if he'll ever make it, especially after he stated that ''The House That Jack Built'' might be his last film.

** He has stated (with a ''cynical tone'') that his latest film, ''The House That Jack Built'', will be an allusion to the rise of Creator/DonaldTrump.

* ControlFreak: Every actor he's ever worked with has characterized von Trier as this. Some (StellanSkarsgard, WillemDafoe, Creator/CharlotteGainsbourg) [[TeethClenchedTeamwork seem to tolerate this enough to work with him again]], while others (Music/{{Bjork}}, Creator/NicoleKidman, Creator/JamesCaan) [[WeUsedToBeFriends do not]].

Then there are some (Jean-Marc Barr, Creator/JohnHurt, Udo Kier) who admires him enough to become part of his ProductionPosse, despite this trope.

** The "USA, Land of Opportunity" Trilogy pares things down further, verging on {{Minimalism}} as sets and most props are eliminated. We follows Grace, another Cutie continuously broken throughout a skewed, [[{{Satire}} satirical]] America. As of 2015, only two films of the trilogy have been made, making this perhaps an OrphanedSeries.

Added DiffLines:

** This continues in ''Film/DancerInTheDark'', which deconstructs Hollywood Musicals and the medium of film itself as means of escapism. And ''Film/{{Manderlay}}'', which specifically deconstructs the Main/WhiteMansBurden trope.
