10. The Boss of it All (2006)
Trust Lars von Trier to come up with something innovative with every film of his own. This one involved an automated camera. ‘The Boss of it All’ stands out as the only attempt by the prolific director in dabbling with full fledged comedy – a black comedy to be precise – and he proved that he can bring something new to the table even in the used and abused genre of comedy. The plot involves a scheming and secretive owner of a Danish IT firm who almost falls into the grave dug by him when he decides to sell it to potential buyer. The film also works as a situational comedy with the aid of the impeccable coming timing of Danish actor Jens Albinus.
9. Europa (1991)
