Lars Von Trier is NOT Sorry For His Nazi Comments

Posted: September 21st, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Lars Von Trier is NOT Sorry For His Nazi CommentsSubmit Comment
During the Cannes Film Festival, director Lars von Trier called himself a Nazi and said that he sympathizes with Hitler. Those comments got him banned from the festival and likely hurt his "Melancholia" film, despite the fact that Von Trier later apologized.

Now in an interview with GQ magazine, Von Trier took his apology back, sort of. He said: "I'm not sorry. I'm sorry that I didn't make it clear that it was a joke. But I can't be sorry for what I said. I don't think there is a right or wrong thing to say. I think that anything can be said. The same with film - anything can be done in a film. If it can be thought in the human mind, then it could be said and it could be seen on a film.

Of course you get troubles for it afterwards, that's for sure, but that doesn't make it wrong. To say I'm sorry for what I said is to say I'm sorry for what kind of a person I am. I am not sorry for what I said. I'm not sorry that I made a joke, but I'm sorry that I didn't make it clear that it was a joke. But I can't be sorry for what I said — it's against my nature.
"

Nice picture, Alex.

von Trier really needs to fade away to obscurity where he belongs.

Noone gives a sh*t about that director, and I'm tired of people who try hard to get others' attention, even when it means they have to force themselves to be provocative. Like that dumb ass...

For a film site people dont seem to have an attention span for movies. Melancholia boring... It is obviously going to be a film that studies depression and human realtionships not the most exciting topic for most. Either dont watch it and wait for the expendables 2 or you usualy like these type of films but don't like von tries pace. However to say he's sh*t and to retire ect is just bullsh*t.

I usually do not comment on sh*t like this.

And that is what it is, sh*t. They say any publicity is good publicity. So ways this is too, in others ways, it gives the wrong preception. To be clear what Hitler actually did: After World War I, the world's powers were carving up and tearing up Germany and draining it of any chance of it easily rebuilding itself. Hitler influenced people to regroup and organize. They rebuilt out of decay and ruin. Because of this success, I believe people's faith in him went to his head. People relied on him more than they should of. That beyond what he accomplised, he had serious deep seeded mental issues. Absolute power corrupts, absolutely. He used his power to elimiate the inner demons within himself. People that are driven by hate, can't ever be satisfied by peace.

This Von Trier might be trying to say he has really deep seeded mental issues. Which is why he should never be given any rise in status to promote his ideas. Either that or he is just talking out of his ass, which wouldn't surprize me one bit.

Now God Damn It!!! Stop reporting this! This is not movie news! Far too f*cking serious of a topic to give primitive screwheads and nutjobs on this site "ammo" to bitch and moan and not say anything constructive.

Within the context I don't see anything wrong with what he said. He didn't advocate genocide, and he didn't choose to be born into a German family who were Nazi sympathizers. I say good for him for not breaking and giving into the pressure of political correctness over this sensationalist bullsh*t.

I thought it was funny. Cracking jokes to a hypersensitive audience doesn't make a person a Nazi. Enslaving jews in the 1940's is what makes a person a Nazi.

I believe it was best said in The Dark Knight:

Alfred Pennyworth: You crossed the line first, sir. You squeezed them, you hammered them to the point of desperation. And in their desperation they turned to a man they didn't fully understand.

Hitler turned Germany's defeat to direction of a goal. The Nazi political party was first started out working within the system, but diluted into becoming an image of a horrific monster. Bring upon the worst extremes what pure evil lies inside human beings. It's not a horror movie. I know of horror movies and am a fan. But this is a pure "sickness". Like that The Human Centipede 2. What entaintment value is that?

@porn - no but I have a pair of underwear that says 'Slippery when wet' with an arrow pointing to my balls.

So... this guy is no longer sorry for his previous sorry that he wasn't really sorry for because he was joking and he didn't explain that, and for that he's sorry, but not for what he said sorry?

Just clearing that up.
