Cool interview. Thanks, Ono.

All filmmakers say they hate their movies. You know they hate them because they see all they could have done but didn't, but you know they love them because they birthed them.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Somebody should post the pictures that went with the article, as it is very cool seeing both guys in the same room. I'd do it, but I don't have the magazine -- just browsed through it at a newstand.

Those were my thoughts exactly.  I have access to a scanner, so tomorrow, if no one else has done it yet, I'll try to scan the articles in.  Hehe, I probably should've attempted that before transcribing the bloody thing.

GREAT interview! Thanks very very much Onomono!

Wanna know what sucks though? I have never seen a Lars Von Trier film, I feel so left out right now.

Go see Dancer in the Dark.  Right now.  It's one of the most beautiful films ever made.  It's very depressing, though, so just be warned.  And check out Breaking the Waves, too, though it is a lesser work than Dancer, IMO.  That's not an insult to that film, though.  Dancer is just so good, that it dwarfs most other films.

Breaking the Waves is a lesser work to only about 3 films in the history of cinema.

1. Zentropa
2. Dancer in the Dark
3. The Idiots

anyway, the point is ebeaman should watch Breaking the Waves first, as Dancer can be a difficult film for an LVT virgin.
