Nymphomaniac was also pretty good, especially part 2. But yeah, also rather disturbing.

What about Michael Haneke? Funny Games (1997), Caché and The White Ribbon are all terrific movies.

I've seen Antichrist also, definitely a "different" kind of a movie. Are all of Trier's films like that in terms of graphic content?

Oh yeah, totally forgot about him. Not a huge fan of The White Ribbon, though. Haven't seen Amour yet

And I didn't know that he made an English-language remake of Funny Games

Dancer in the Dark is very good.
But yeah, disturbing.

One of the weirdest European films is IMO the French-Austrian The Piano Teacher (La Pianiste) by the aforementioned Michael Haneke.
