    Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier finds himself at the center of yet another controversy. This time his film Dogville appears to have partly inspired extremist Anders B. Breivik, who is accused of executing a killing spree that left 69 people dead in Norway, reports Hollywood Elsewhere, who quotes some of von Trier's comments in an interview with Nils Thoren of Denmark's Politiken:Breivik's Facebook page listed Dogville as his third favorite film right behind Gladiator and 300, and "even von Trier could easily discern the similarities between the carnage at Utoya and the film's ending," Thoren writes.
