My intended point was that the potential for extreme cruelty, or the opposite, lies within every human being

I guess I missed that fucking retarded point. I thought he was just speaking for him but now I reckon he was speaking for all of us. We're all nazis... I mean POTENTIAL nazis.

There is no potential inside of me that could make me throw children in microwave ovens or throw stones in people's face because I ''can''. Anyone who tries to impose that potential on me is probably trying to justify something in his mind... Anyone who makes the claim ''You don't understand! Everyone has the potential to do it'' well how the fuck do you know that?

In fact, history has proven time after time after time that there is a fringe of crazy people who sometimes are joined in craziness by otherwise less crazy people but in all cases there were others who stood up against atrocities. It would appear these people didn't have the ''potential for extreme cruelty''

I think the potential for cruelty is in everyone, but you're right that it's not so black and white that everyone is capable of murder.

Kirsten Dunst's reaction during the infamous remarks:


This strikes me as potentially a very useful gif.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

I like it when Hollywood actresses make ugly faces.  I mean I don't buy tabloids showcasing actresses in ugly moments, I'm just saying it's nice to see an unplanned and naturally imperfect reaction from someone usually so purposely perfected.

Can someone put that next to an animated gif of Mike Meyers when Kanye said "George Bush doesn't care about black people"?

Pas I love you man, but in this thread you've been the most extreme out of anyone. I find this comment kind of ironic. weren't you the one talking about nukes?

I definitely have been the most extreme out of anyone at defending basic safety rights of women against the invasion of radical islam (sharia)  :ponder: I did talk about nukes: about being afraid Israel could be nuked!

Anyway, ask the coptic christians of egypt how it's like living with radical islamists as a minority (what most palestine-lovers wish israeli jews would do). Coptics are being slaughtered while the world praise the glorious arab spring.

I'm no "palestine lover" but I do wish the Jews would've found a better place to settle like a nice empty south pacific island or something instead of the godforsaken middle-east, and I'm pretty sure they could afford to relocate any time.

Lars Von Trier Can’t Stop Talking About Nazis; Isn’t Sure ‘The Five Obstructions’ Will Happen
Source: Playlist

Before Lars Von Trier left Cannes this spring, banned from ever attending again due to his unfortunate comments during the “Melancholia” press conference, the director made waves for a much more positive reason. It was announced that he was teaming with Martin Scorsese to do another version of “The Five Obstructions” with reports indicating it would shoot in early 2012.

The 2003 original involved Von Trier challenging his mentor, filmmaker Jørgen Leth, to remake his 1967 picture “The Perfect Human,” a favorite of the younger director, five times, with different conditions, or “obstructions” each time: in Cuba, with no shot lasting more than 12 frames’ in “the worst place in the world” but without showing that place; in any way he chooses (as a punishment); as a cartoon; and in something of a twist, a version already made by Von Trier himself, but with narration from Leth. While there was no word what film Von Trier was going to pick out of Scorsese’s extensive catalog the pairing alone caused cinephiles worldwide to go wild. However, in the wake of Von Trier’s Nazi comments many speculated that Scorsese would balk at working with him and word around the project grew quiet. Well, Von Trier is now casting doubt on the film, noting that Scorsese is still involved but both their busy calendars could keep them from tackling “The Five Obstructions.”

“Marty is busy and so am I, and I don’t know if it will happen –I sincerely hope it will,” Trier said at a Q&A during a retrospective of his films at Kino Babylon in Berlin (via THR). Bummer. But we’ll keep our fingers crossed because we’d love to see Scorsese mix it up with Von Trier—it’s a creative exercise that we think Marty would thrive on. But while Von Trier wants for that to play out, he’s prepping his arthouse porno thingy “The Nymphomaniac” and seems to be getting off on the research.

“Nymphomaniac –I’m writing, and I’m having such a great time,” he said. “I’m talking to all the ladies I knew when I was young, who are now 50 and 60, and if you take a woman of 50 or 60 who has been sexually active, they will talk for hours. And this is fantastic, it’s a pleasure and I smile all the way, and that’s why I want to extend the research time. You have no idea how dirty the female mind is!” Details still remain scant on the project, other than he’s approach Stellan Skarsgard and Willem Dafoe for roles and that it will center on “the erotic life of a woman from the age of zero to the age of 50.”

But being in Berlin didn’t stop Lars from once again making some Nazi comments. “Some German journalists interviewed me, and I told them the French are the real Nazis, and they really liked that,” he said. Sigh. But wait there’s more. “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.”

Von Trier needs to hire some handlers or something because he’s just continually digging his own grave and mostly sounds like some pretentious college kid who thinks their post-modern, ironic cynicism allows them to get away with outlandish and/or infantile comments. We love you Lars, but enough.

Right back atcha, playlist.

Also, old man Scorsese wanting nothing to do with Von Trier by saying he has other things scheduled is like when Barry Lyndon beats up Bullingdon and then old man oldmate wants nothing to do with him and keeps saying he has other plans..

Stellan Skarsgard is Lady Lyndon and Willem Defoe is Barry's mother. The playlist is who the narrator refers to when he says "a legend arose about Barry's cruelty to his son".. they're the gossiping she-dogs of the time.

Lars Von Trier probably wants to dress like Barry Lyndon.
