Wonder what Kirsten Dunst was thinking when filmmaker Lars von Trier announced he was down with Hitler at the Cannes Film Festival? You're in luck ... thanks to Thought Bubble technology!051911_TV_cannes_still_v2

It's too bad.

When he's on, Von Trier is one of the best filmmakers alive. His new film looks awesome. And he was just kind of kidding in his comments. This isn't actually going to hurt his career, but I hope it doesn't delay the film distribution.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Another passive-aggressive coffeehouse intellectual anti-Semitic (yeah yeah he *thought* he was Jewish)f***tard trying to make a statement ostensibly about Israel but really about how he feels about Jews.

And France? All of a sudden they're bristling at this kind of crap? That's a switch. Gotta look good for the Hollywood crowd eh? I don't buy any of it. His movies are garbage & so is he.

Lars did grow up in a Jewish home( Trier is a Jewish name)but found out he was adopted, and that he had a German background, evidently with Nazi ties.
So on this background it makes sense, because, anyone will try to understand where they came from, and find the good side.
in this case the esthetics's of Speer and Riefenstahl.

Unfortunately these finer points gets lost when people just hear Hitler and react with knee jerk condemnation

I feel bad for Kirsten! That had to be a horribly uncomfortable position to be put in. You can tell she's sitting there wondering if she should just get up and walk away.

@rhbjorn:

Exactly how many people had to die fighting Nazis for it to not be "knee jerk condemnation" when someone says he's a Nazi, say's he admires Adolph Hitler and says maybe he'll do a new movie entitled "The Final Solution"?

I don't think the families of all the people who lost loved ones fighting the Nazis or just being massacred by them in WW2 have to debate "the finer points" as you put it. Why can't they mourn their losses without being needled by this moronic director?

You're rather naive, rhbjorn.

This Nazi director has the right to say whatever he wants in France and the Cannes film festival had every right to ask him to leave and not come back.

If you like what he says so much, you can invite him to live in your house or apartment.

@jason:

"This isn't going to hurt his career"?

This is going to hurt his career big time. You think actresses like Kirsten Dunst whom he disrespected there in that press conference are going to want to word for this Nazi retard after his rant trying to glorify the Nazis and Adolph Hitler?

"I hope it doesn't delay the film distribution"?

Don't worry. I'm sure you'll be able to get a copy of the film at your local White Power Aryan Nation office.

i really truly think he just rambled down a REALLY stupid road and started digging himself deeper and deeper. brilliant director (save for Antichrist, ugh) but verbal diarrhea in this instance.
