Last we heard from Melancholia director Lars von Trier, he had made an extensive apology for his awful Nazi comments (above) from the Cannes Film Festival.
Now, Lars is not only accepting Cannes' decision to kick him out of the festival, but he's sort of thanking them for it, because of the title they've given him:
"I must say, `persona non grata' is a wonderful word. It has a sweetness to it that I can't deny. I'm not at all happy about what happened, but the word is something like an order you get."
And here's Lars
failing trying to justify his Hitler comments:
"Of course, I don't sympathize with what Hitler had done. The only thing I said was that I, after seeing Bruno Ganz in the bunker, could kind of see a little human being sitting there. And I thought, that was very good, because I think that there's a little bit of a Nazi in all of us, and there's a little bit of a human being in Hitler, and I think to think otherwise is dangerous."
A little bit of a Nazi in all of us???
Seriously Lars, it's time for you to stop talking. We were SORT OF inclined to give you a little leeway because it seemed like you weren't serious, but you just keep digging yourself into a deeper and deeper hole. Too deep for us!
What do U think of Lars von Trier's newest comments?
