Lars Von Trier Fears He Can't Direct Films While Sober

Posted: December 2nd, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Lars Von Trier Fears He CanSubmit Comment
In a new interview, director Lars Von Trier (Melancholia, Dogville, Antichrist, Nymphomaniac) revealed that he's been sober for over ninety days and attends Alcoholics Anonymous meetings every day.

But now that he's no longer taking drugs or getting drunk, he feels it may be time to quit directing films. "I can't recommend anyone to do the same (quit abusing drugs and alcohol)," he explained. "It is very dangerous and stupid in every way. No creative expression of artistic value has ever been carried out by former alcoholics and drug addicts."

Von Trier is currently planning a few new projects. Only time will tell whether he'll attempt to direct them sober or whether he'll really quit the business.

Oddly enough, people either have to be drunk to see Lars' films, or they're driven to drink afterwards. Probably helps to be a little wasted while dealing with Shia as well.

Never seen any of von Triars' works and never will.

I knew it! No wonder most of his films are crap. He was drunk all the time!

His films are terrible aside from Breaking the Waves and Dancer in the Dark.

He may actually make better films being sober.

In case you didn't know, most actors and directors are drug addicts, or at least take them regularly. Tarantino and PTA are the ones that jump to my head first. Most are addicted to opiates, but keep it on the DL. Von Trier just had the balls to come out with it. But yea, once you get off those f*ckers, you literally lose all creativity and passion you once had for awhile.

Oh no. How sad.
Lars Von Trier is way overrated as a director. I mean, come on - Have you guys actually seen for example Melancholia, Antichrist, Nymphomaniac, Breaking The Waves and/or Dogville?
If not - Don't.

I personally thought that 'Dog Ville' was an inciteful film, cleverly filmed without backdrops or excessive use of props, which laid bare the story and subsequent character changes to good effect.

Oh & Mink....go f*ck yourself you useless 'First Post'-ing prick. You have never ever said anything good about ANY film, your just a trolling hater and should stick to amusing yourself with your thoughts rather than annoy genuine film fans with your pathetically annoying diatribe.

yeah, in short....hold your breathe for 20 mins PLEASE, the world would be a better place without you, seriously, a much better place.
