Lars Von Trier Apologizes For Nazi Comments For The 438th Time Again!

| Filed under: Film FlickersOops!PerezTVEvents

Last we heard from Melancholia director Lars von Trier, he had dug himself into a PRET-TY deep hole with further Nazi comments.

As a reminder, Lars made some awful Nazi/Hitler comments (above), which enraged folks at Cannes, and got him kicked out of the film festival. He attempted to apologize, but only made things worse for himself.

Now, he's giving the whole apology thing another go, and this time he's referring to his Nazi comments as "unintelligent…and needlessly hurtful."

Okay Lars, this is a step in the right direction! We like what we're hearing so far!

After being condemned for his comments, Lars had the following to say:

"In my opinion, freedom of speech, in all its shapes, is part of basic human rights. However, my comments during the festival's press conference were unintelligent, ambiguous and needlessly hurtful."

"My intended point was that the potential for extreme cruelty, or the opposite, lies within every human being, whatever nationality, ethnicity, rank or religion. If we only explain historical disasters with the cruelty of individuals we destroy the possibility of understanding the human mechanisms, which in turn are necessary in order to avoid any future crimes against humanity."

All right, Lars. As far as apologies are concerned, this is MUCH BETTER than your previous ones.

We're thinking you should quit while you're ahead. You know if you keep talking about this, the hole-digging will begin again.

What do U think about Lars' latest apology? Adequate, or at least adequate enough?

    enuf already! WTF is he talkin' about?

    Perez, I think this is the only apology that you've understood. This is a deeply intelligent person who understands people, the way they think and is also imaginative. He spends a lot of time thinking and understanding the human mind. If his joke was over your head, that's unfortunate for you.



  3. 3

    I don't think he should have apologized at all.



  4. 4

    Right on, Auflauf. It's a sad statement about society that so many misunderstood what he was getting at in the first place (even if, admittedly, he could have expressed it more clearly). Much easier for people to villainize someone for bringing to light truths they don't want to acknowledge and/or are incapable of understanding.

    He was just JOKING . . . this sort of thing is what makes them Hate on jews

    I understood his first remarks, in context. I understood his first apology. I understand this apology. To pretend that he is not understood and use it that way is an extremely nasty and scary thing in and of itself.

    He never should of apologized in the first place. Agree with a few of the above people. The "monsters" that the Nazi's became were from a perfect mix of lies, fear, and human nature. Read "Ordinary Men" Great book.
