Lars Von Trier Might Not Get To Remaking 'Five Obstructions,' But He Will Say Some More Crap About Nazis

September 7, 2011


Bad news if you were looking forward to Lars Von Trier remaking his Five Obstructions with Martin Scorsese: speaking in Berlin on Saturday, Von Trier told reporters, "Marty is busy and so am I, and I don't know if it will happen." So maybe don't look for that happening any time soon. That's really all I have on that subject, so let's get on with all the new shit about Nazis Von Trier added to his previous poorly-received comments:

"Some German journalists interviewed me, and I told them the French are the real Nazis, and they really liked that," he said, most likely alluding to France's policy of expelling Gypsies.

Nevertheless, he qualified his Cannes Nazi remarks with the following:

"There was a point to this whole thing. I think history shows that we are all Nazis somewhere, and there are a lot of things that can be suddenly set free, and the mechanics behind this setting-free is something we really should really investigate, and the way we do not investigate it is to make it a taboo to talk about it."

So the French are the most Nazis, but also the rest of us are Nazis, somewhere. That's where we stand right now with who is and isn't a Nazi. Everyone is a Nazi. Thanks, Lars. Now you get back to that nymphomania movie.
