Leland: The worst part is knowing that there is goodness in people. Mostly it stays deep down and buried. Maybe we don't have God because we're scared of the bad stuff. Maybe we're really scared of the good stuff. Because if there's no God, well, that means it's inside of us and we could be good all the time if we wanted. So when we do bad things, it'd be because we want to or because we have to. Or maybe we just need the bad stuff to remind us what the good stuff is in the first place.

From the Main Menu select "Upgrades." From the Upgrades menu, when your cursor (which will look like a wrench) is on "Commentaries" move to the left. You should see crossed wrenches appear on the bottom lefthand corner of the Upgrades title sign. Press enter/select to watch "Mechanical Mistakes - Rodney Loses His Head." This isn't even a film, it is just a short snippet of quite literally a mechanical mistake where Rodney...loses his head. It is only a few seconds long and...not at all impressive. But it's there if you want to find it.
Narrator: How much of our past lives, the thousands of moments we experience, helps to make us who we are? If you took all of these remembrances, these memories, away, what would be left? How much is our personality, our identity, determined by the experiences we have, and how much is already there - pure "us?"

Lars von Trier (Dancer in the Dark, Dogville) now enters the world of documentary filmmaking alongside his idol, Danish filmmaker Jørgen Leth.
