This article with the ADL's perspective is definitely more ignorant than the joke, to the point of hilarity. It pretty much suggests that the pressures of filmmaking must be causing his life to fall apart in some kind downward spiral that is specifically anti-Semitic in nature.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Meh, that article just says that it's not provocative. I'm okay with that.

Ha, I'll wait for Haneke's movie.

How is this a response to KarlJan's linked review and what is it supposed to mean?  How is Haneke's movie related to Von Trier's movie?
“If I had to hold up the most heavily fortified bank in America,” Bolaño says, “I’d take a gang of poets. The attempt would probably end in disaster, but it would be beautiful.”

LVT's flicks are always polarizing. Didn't Antichrist get the first anti-award from Cannes?

But now it's considered a masterpiece.

Or an affront to all that is decent in cinema.

I really can't tell.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

It's a response because I don't trust the "A" grade. And I think that Haneke has a little more going for him as a provacateur than Von Trier.

Has everyone seen the video of the press conference? http://www.festival-cannes.com/en/mediaPlayer/11391.html

It's so clear that he was just trying to make a very dark and provocative point (of questionable merit) about sympathising with evil, realised he was making a hash of it, then tried to diffuse it with a joke about how he knew his words would be spun ("Okay, fine, yes: I'm a Nazi - that's how you're all going to write it up anyway..."). If you haven't already, it's worth checking out the video for Dunst's hilarious awkward reactions alone. The question that kicks it off comes at 34:30.

While the mics are still running after the the conference has ended you hear Dunst saying "Oh, Lars... That was intense." To which he replies, "Oh, come ooon..." I concur.
"Should I bring my own chains?"
"We always do..."

So, are you more concerned about which will be the better movie and receive a better grade, or what your personal experience will be while watching the movies?  Like with Malick, I find curious the investments you make in other people's receptions and opinions, especially when expressed with surrogate authority.  That's the mindset of studio bigwigs, isn't it?  Relying on response cards.  Are you excited about what people will say about the movie, or what you yourself will think and feel while watching the movie?

I thought it was ajoke and then it was true, he does.

BTW after having seeing it, NOT SO sure it's as big of a ''joke'' we thought it was. I mean the ''Im nazi'' part and so forth was a joke but not the initial part.

Two critics/nerds talk about Cannes for the Film Society of Lincoln Center.  The beginning is all about Melancholia and Tree of Life.

BTW both critics say fuck is 'written' on LVT's hand.
