    Charlotte Gainsbourg of "Melancholia" Talks Lars von Trier and Her Latest Album

    Despite what Kirsten Dunst's Cannes Best Actress coup for "Melancholia" would lead you to believe, Lars von Trier's latest drama is essentially a two-handed affair. The film is split into two sections, the first titled 'Justine' (Dunst's character); the second '...

    Lars Von Trier Will No Longer Speak To Press Or Do Interviews; Faces Charges Over Cannes Comments

    It wasn't that long ago that troublemaking director Lars Von Trier was poking fun at his Person Non Grata status bestowed upon him after his bungled comments in Cannes this spring. With a U.K. poster for "Melancholia" bearing an image of the director with a hilarious and fake official seal from Cann...

    With Rights To 'Nymphomaniac' Selling Like Crazy, Does Lars Von Trier's Non-Apology Really Matter?

    Oh, Lars Von Trier. The director, who seriously needs to be put in the hands of a good publicist, continues to shoot off this mouth and stack the deck against himself. While he's not exactly Mel Gibson, watching the helmer lately is akin to seeing a sub-Andrew Dice Clay comedian bomb terribly somewhere in the Catskills. His comments, both at Cannes and in the latest issue of GQ, aren't so much offensive (though we can understand how someone might be offended) as they are a series of poorly selected words. Before we get to the latest statement that has ruffled feathers, let's rewind a bit to the Croisette -- here's what he said at the time in ...

    Lars Von Trier Can't Stop Talking About Nazis; Isn't Sure 'The Five Obstructions' Will Happen

    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.

    Stellan Skarsgard May Reunite With Lars Von Trier For 'Nymphomaniac'

    Film Described As "Messy" And Dialogue-Heavy With "A Lot Of Different Diversions And Strange Ideas"If anyone understands the implacable Lars von Trier, it would be Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgard. Topped only by Udo Kier in terms of the number of collaborations with the filmmaker, Skarsgard's partnership with von Trier began back in 1994 with the television series"The Kingdom," which led to the feature run of "Breaking The Waves," "Dancer In The Dark," "Dogville" and "Melancholia." The Scandinavian pair's fruitful partnership may yield yet another picture, as Skarsgard has revealed that the controversial von Trier has offered him the lead for...

    Beef Watch: Nicolas Winding Refn 'Repulsed' By Lars Von Trier! Von Trier Says 'Fuck Him'! Porno!

    Another day, another right turn to the ridiculously stupid fall-out from Lars Von Trier's "nazi" statements. Good old humorless reporters at Cannes loved raking noted provocateur Lars Von Trier over the coals for his joking "pro-Nazi" stance before the organization dubbed him persona non grata. The ...

    Cannes Organizers Sink To Lars Von Triers' Level, Ban Director From Festival With Immediate Effect

    Wow, Lars-Von-Trier-Is-A-Dick-At-A-Press-Conference-Gate just keeps running and running, doesn't it? The troublemaking director managed to totally overshadow the quality, or otherwise (the film's attracted the most divisive reaction of a festival that's already seen little consensus on its films) of "Melancholia" by behaving in his usual provocative manner at the film's press conference yesterday. The headline-happy helmer told assembled reporters that "Ok. I’m a Nazi... For a long time I thought I was a Jew and I was happy to be a Jew... I found out I was actually a Nazi. Which also gave me some pleasure. My family were German. What can I s...
