during my amphetamine days it became a running joke among my friends that no one should mention Trier to me, I would just take the opposite viewpoint and argue about it for hours... he is so just so much fun to talk about and you can argue from any standpoint you want and still be right about it... he is a living paradox which he is aware of it. to quote his wife;

Quote
Lars Trier's greatest achievement is Lars von Trier

the dude added "von" to his name when he was a kid to piss off his film teachers... that says it all, really. he is just creating this myth about himself. regarding what Pete said in the other thread, that we can't end the argument with "his work can't be misogynistic because he's a FEMINIST", I would say that it's the exact opposite. trier as a person seems to be a misogynistic idiot (I don't defend him as a human anymore, saying that he is a good person trying to be bad), but most of his films are feminist imo. I guess that's what makes him fascinating to people, it isn't black and white, his films contradicts themselves all the time which evokes debates. that's why he is a important filmmaker. he provokes in a way that makes people talk about issues that's important. that's the way you should do it.
