manderlay: even so-so lars von trier is pretty good

I loved Dogville so much that I both feared and kinda looked forward to the second installment in Lars von Trier's "U.S.A." trilogy, Manderlay -- I didn't want him to diminish the first film's power but I wanted to see what he would come up with next. Now, I know, and while I didn't love it, I'm still pretty impressed by it.
