YMMV: Dogville
  • Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: The conversation in the limo at the end of the movie could easily be portrayed as symbolically taking place between the Father and the Son just after the crucifixion. Except that the Father convinces the Son (Grace) that all those wretched sinners aren't worth saving and shouldn't be forgiven.
    • In which case the ending would be a commentary on just how special the real Jesus' forgiveness is supposed to be.
  • Fridge Horror: Grace sparing the dog at first seems like a rather kind gesture, until you realize that the dog is now alone in the middle of nowhere without anybody to care for or feed it, and will probably go the way of the townsfolk fairly soon.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Everyone gets their moment, YMMV if Grace crossed it at the end massacring the entire village
  • True Art Is Angsty
  • The Woobie: Grace
