The history of filmmaking demonstrates that the form and content of films need not be restricted to prevailing patterns founded on the ubiquitous Hollywood style. It also demonstrates that there are perfectly viable, interesting and challenging ways of communicating stories and ideas using alternative cinematic means, which are often provocative and revealing. In his study of American cinema of the late 1970s and early 1980s, Robert Philip Kölker, considering the films of a group of filmmakers which included Penn, Altman, and Scorsese, identified them as filmmakers who were, refusing the classical American approach to film. Scorsese has been called 'the only director in Hollywood whose devotion to cinema justifies everyone's notions of popular art'. Breaking the Waves marked the return of Danish film director Lars von Trier to the cinema screen after a period of making The Kingdom, a hospitaldrama series for television.
