Post Von Trier Banned From Cannes
http://www.deadline.com/2011/05/cannes- ... ore-133260

Even if he's not serious his shtick is just annoying. I can't deny he's a talented filmmaker (with the occasional misstep) but he seems awfully despicable as a human being. Is this what he wants attention for? Because it's not going to do him any favors. Yes it gets press, but he can't honestly think it's going to make people want to see his films. I feel sorry for the cast who had to be sitting there while he spewed this crap.

Too obvious a joke to get worked up over. Kind of funny, actually. He's just taking the piss out of the whole Cannes/journo maelstrom.

I think both lars and mike are pretty funny, but nikki is the real jokester. She sounds so fucking dumb when she tries to get moralistic.

Exactly. If they don't know how to behave, and feel OK offending others, they get their ass kicked, so they'll think next time before opening their rotten mouths.

He has been banned from Cannes. I do find this to be a bit of an overreaction.

Roman Polanski raped a child (great filmmaker, but no point mincing words), and he's not banned from Cannes. In fact, I believe he's been on the jury.

Absurd.

I said the same earlier today.

Was that somehow supposed to be a clever comment?

Then it was simply false.

It's obvious he was trying to make a joke. But he made two big mistakes. He made a wording mistake. Which would be OK if there wasn't for the second, crucial mistake. Never make a holocaust joke. Even if it's a non offensive joke, people will get offended simply because it's a holocaust joke.

After seeing footage of the incident, this ban is even more absurd. Obviously a rambling joke.

No. But I am not not Lars von Trier because I would not have apologized.

Funny thing is that if he would have said that he sympathizes with Stalin, Lenin, Pol Pot, Ceaucescu or Mao, those guys that criticize him would applaud.

Absurd.

To be fair this was an event directly connected to Cannes whereas Polanski's has no connection, so for them to take action here and not there kind of makes sense. Having said that, the fact that they would ban him merely for something that was obviously and blatantly just bad humor is flat out offensive. And the fact that people are talking about this as if he may have been serious is no longer funny but just idiotic. It is astonishingly clear from the language he doesn't mean any of it so anyone who is "offended" is just a real fucking moron. I hate censorship.

Some people don't have a sense of humor.

I think the Cannes Festival responded with a sense of humor.
