This film is all about symbolism and social commentary, and I can appreciate that. However, I draw the line when that commentary is presented through a completely ridiculous, and at times, quite stupid script. It's the worst kind of dumb - the one that thinks and acts like it isn't. It makes the movie rapidly go from poignant and interesting to pretentious, cheesy, and laughable. Now, some people will argue, "You just don't get the point!" No, I got the point - I just didn't like the way it was delivered to me. Fortunately, those scenes don't occupy the entire movie, and there are still a few other aspects of the movie to enjoy (*cough* Allison Pill topless *cough*). The actors are particularly good, and I also liked the constant use of irony (pacifists with guns, etc.). One of the things I primarily enjoyed was the underlying Western style (sometimes used with a sense of parody), which worked especially well during the movie's big shoot-out finale (despite specific elements from it which went against various ideas the movie had been consistent with up until that point). Overall, I really liked what the movie was trying to do... but didn't really like the way it did it.
Well, at any rate, here are the extras that were apparently supposed to be on the disc: Audio Commentary (with director Vinterberg and cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle), a 25-minute "Letters to 'Dear Wendy'" featurette, a 17-minute interview between Vinterberg and von Trier, 5 deleted scenes, the script's original ending, and a bunch of previews.
The only extras on the DVD I received are 2 Trailers, one for DEAR WENDY and one for MANDERLAY (another movie by Lars von Trier).
