    Lars von Trier's Alternative to Interviews for 'Nymphomaniac'? The Progressive Release of Chapter Teasers

    At the 2011 edition of Cannes, Lars von Trier caused quite a stir when he implied that he could understand how someone -- someone like himself -- could become a Nazi. As part of the publicity for his new film "Nymphomaniac," von Trier has released a new tape-over-his-mouth press photo (above) that ...

    Lars Von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac' Will Use Digital Technology To Put A-List Heads On Porn Double Bodies

    So we'd heard some interesting rumors of late regarding Lars Von Trier's "Nymphomaniac" -- rumors of heavy visual effects elements, seemingly borne out by the producer saying that the film wouldn't be ready until the very end of the year due to some extensive post-production elements. And now, the t...

    The first poster for Lars von Trier's hotly anticipated sexual epic "Nymphomaniac" has made its way onto the web two weeks ahead of Cannes, where his latest won't be screening.

    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 ...
