WTF? Melancholia Director Lars Von Trier Calls Himself A Nazi At Cannes

lars von trier says he is a nazi

Should have kept your mouth shut, Lars!

During a discussion of his film Melancholia at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday, director Lars Von Trier shocked everyone when he declared himself a Nazi.

Melancholia star Kirsten Dunst tried to stop him, but for some reason he felt the need to dig himself into a massive hole while at the event.

Here are some highlights from Lars' hole-diggery:

"Yes, I am a Nazi!

"Well that doesn't mean I have anything against Jews, except Susanne Bier (Danish filmmaker, In a Better World).

"Well, Israel is a pain in the ass…"

"Okay, I am a Nazi…"

"Nazis tend to do things on a grander scale…"

"Perhaps we can have a Final Solution for journalists…."

Exactly what were you trying to accomplish with this, Lars? Shock value? Doesn't sound like you were joking to us!

What do U think about Lars Von Trier's comments?

    Hello…your surrounded by them.



  2. 2

    If you've seen any of his movies or read previous interviews with him, you'll know that he is notorious for shock-tactics.



  3. 3

    I hear this is a great film.

    How come you wet your panties with this and yet let the zxillion haters on your site, mmm DOUBLE STANDARD, Lars was joking he's known for being kind of a Jerk, and well a few SECs after this he burst in to laughs and said he was just joking, also if you check his movies you'll see a huge number of jewish actors . . . Do your homework perez

    If GaGa said it you either wouldn't post it or would proclaim it epic and profound.

    You've taken his words out of context. Actually, there really wasn't much context to begin with. If you read the whole thing, he was rambling on and on about loving Jews and wishing he was a Jew, and then talking about Hitler and Nazis, and not really making a whole lot of sense. It was just rambling, silly conversation.

    That's his dark sense of humor, that's it. That's how he talks. Period. (God Charlotte Gainsbourg is busted)

    I read the entire transcript of his comments, and he is so totally speaking tongue in cheek and trying to inject black humor in regard to his being tossed about in his quest to determine his once nebulous personal origins.
    It has to be read all together to understand the context of the comments. Any one can take one sentence and try to twist it to mean something else and then use it as an excuse to beat someone up about it.

    I'm sure he did it to get attention. A few hours later he regretted the whole thing.

    YOU have the audacity to criticize someone else for shock tactics? You're a hypocrite, without shock tactics you & Lady Gaga would be destitute…bitch.

    Well for me the only thing shocking about this story is, that you are so shocked!!! WTF? Get over yourself and your feigned sence of moral. "Nazi" is also, as you well know, a degraiding term refering to people who are extremely detailoriented and cruel leaders (remember Bailey's nickname in Grey's Anatomy season one??) Lars Von Trier has had that reputation for many years, which, I assume, is why he was joking about it.

    jesus christ, you seriously managed to just pull out bits and pieces from his whole long rant to make this look even worse, right?
    i bet if your beloved gaga spat this out of her whore mouth you'd be absolutely loving it.

    Ugh, this man is what the Emperor's New Clothes were about. He's so pretentious and narcissistic (I kinda hope that's what he meant instead of calling himself a nazi, but who am I kidding) that I think this statement of his came out of sheer boredom and a need to shock people.
    Well Mr. Von Tier, you're a douchebag and I hope you NEVER have to endure the hell those 6 milion people had to go through before they were slaughtered by Hitler and his men. Shame on you for even using this to get a reaction. Some press IS bad press.



  14. 14

    Joke or no joke it really does not matter…the man is clearly an idiot who just wants attention. In an industry supported by many Jews, who have supported him, this kind of 'joke' is inexcusable and completely inappropriate in every conceiveable sense.



  15. 15

    The only one in the world who can make fun of Hitler is Prince Harry. why?



  16. 16

    Well Perez, you should read about his strange childhood to understand his humor.

    He was trying to be funny but ge got lost in his own maze.

    Shock value? I guess you and your friend, Lady Gaga, can learn him some better tricks for next time. ;)
