    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.

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 ...

    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...

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 ...
