Media Musings Blog Archive You Cannes say that
Hypervenomx turf the critically acclaimed and sometimes provocative Danish director was banned from being 100 metres from the film festival after his anti Semitic and pro Hitler ramblings where he said he understood the Nazi leader.
It didn’t take long for a media frenzy to ensue, especially after the festival declared him persona non grata and considered removing his film Melancholia as a contender for the prestigious Palme d can imagine that such comments from anyone would cause an uproar, but is it because of Von Trier reputation as being a little left of center (or perhaps right in this case?) that the media has gone to town?
His dark and provocative filmmaking has always caused an uproar with audiences, so the media would have loved yet another slip of the tongue from the reliably crazy Lars.
But just because he might be a little crazy doesn necessarily mean he stupid.
Von Trier is no stranger to controversy and, with his comments dominating press coverage from Cannes, is most likely of the opinion that any publicity is good publicity.
In reality, Cannes would have also loved the frenzy because of this same reason.
The Anti Defamation League quickly condemned his remarks, stating that von Trier is clearly with some personal ghosts Trier was always going to issue an apology for his comments because you really just can go around sympathising with Hitler.
He put his rather prolonged slip of the tongue down to « characteristic haste » and his « Danish humour,
The American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants said that Holocaust survivors condemn Von Trier repulsive comments as an exploitation of victims suffering for self serving promotion and publicity serving promotion and publicity?
Lars might be crazy but the people at the head of the film industry have a lot of people to keep happy. It might be a stereotype but there are a lot of Jewish people working in this industry and it would been very poorly received if the festival organisers didn do something about it.
He entitled to his opinion but there some things you simply just cannot say in public and sympathising with Hitler is one mercurial fg of them.
Regardless of how crazy this man is, I don think this kind of publicity will do him any favours in this industry for a while.
The reality of the media world as we know it is that people know what to do to get attention but I wonder if they ever so closely consider the consequences of this attention. Regardless to Lars and popular, opinion, I do not believe all publicity is good publicity and while he may have trained a spotlight on himself for the time being, it is for all the wrong reasons. Not only has he justified his reputation, he has also insulted a wide and varied group of people from devastating backgrounds. The media glare from this latest outburst will fade but the stain on his character might just be permanent. And this may very well come back to bite him in a way that does not serve his promotional interests.
Really interesting post Chloe!
It so hard to tell what comes first in these situations the comment or the media interest. Lars is well known for his edgy comments so it not unreasonable to think that many media outlets focus more intently on what he says in a public forum than they did with other directors at Cannes simply because they know the possibility of finding something inflammatory or controversial is high.
Having said this, there are some things that will never be received well in a public forum.
Comments that might seem to imply support for Hitler is a doozy!
As a public figure and European Lars should have known this.
As an artist perhaps he felt he was just the boundaries as a human being perhaps he should of realized he was being insensitive.
Silly, silly man. Never will there be a day where enough time has passed to allow comments like von Trier to be socially accepted. He may be known for his edgy comments and outlook on life but that doesn excuse him for having his finger so far off the pulse.
Just like Galliano was sacked from Dior earlier this year for his anti Semetic comments, von Trier should too be punished for sympathising with Hitler. I think festival organisers should pulled his film from the competition to send a message that these kind of remarks are not and will never be tolerated.
And now hypervenomx turf with respect to the old man who knew Chinese, but could not tell what was o’clock. This sac vanessa bruno individual was a man whose natural powers would wedding dresses have been mont blanc pens utterly buried and lost beneath a mountain of sloth and hollister laziness had not God determined otherwise. He had in his early years chalked out for himself a plan of life in which he had chanel handbags his own ease and self indulgence solely wedding dress in view; he had no particular bad passions to gratify, he converse pas cher only wished to lead an easy quiet life, just as if the business of this mighty world could be carried lancel on by innocent people fond of tiffany and co jewelry ease and quiet, or that Providence would permit innocent quiet drones to occupy any portion of the earth michael kors outlet online sale and to burberry outlet online cumber it. north face God had, at any rate, decreed that this man should not cumber it as a drone. He brings a pandora uk certain affliction upon him, the agony of which produces that terrible whirling of the brain michael kors outlet online which, michael kors canada unless it prada outlet is stopped in time, produces babyliss madness; he suffers indescribable misery for a period, until one morning his attention is arrested kate spade outlet online and his curiosity christian louboutin is aroused by certain Chinese letters on a teapot; his curiosity increases more and more, and, of course, in proportion as his new balance outlet curiosity is increased with respect to the Chinese marks, the misery in his brain produced by his mental affliction decreases. He sets about learning Chinese, and after the lapse of many years, during scarpe hogan which his mind subsides into replica watches a certain state of tranquillity, he acquires sufficient knowledge of Chinese to be able to translate with ease burberry outlet online the inscriptions to be found abercrombie and fitch on its singular crockery. Yes, the laziest of human beings, longchamp outlet through the providence of God nike free a being, too, of rather inferior capacity acquires the written part of a language so difficult that, coach purses as Lavengro said pandora charms on a swarovski jewelry former occasion, none but the cleverest people in Europe, the French, ralph lauren pas cher are nike free able to thomas sabo uk acquire pandora jewelry it. But God did not intend that man should merely acquire Chinese. north face pas cher He intended that he should air max pas cher be of use to his species, converse and, by timberland shoes the tn pas cher instrumentality of the first Chinese inscription which lacoste pas cher he translates, the one which first arrested his curiosity, nike air max he oakley is taught the duties of nike air max hospitality; yes, by means of an inscription in the longchamp language of a people who have ray ban uk scarcely an idea of hospitality themselves, God causes the slothful man to play giuseppe zanotti a useful and beneficent part in the ralph lauren world, relieving distressed wanderers, and, amongst others, Lavengro himself. But a striking indication of the man’s surprising sloth is still apparent in what he omits to do; he valentino shoes has learnt Chinese, soccer jerseys the most difficult of languages, nfl jerseys and he practises acts of hospitality because he believes himself enjoined to do so by the Chinese inscription, but he hermes pas cher cannot tell the hour of the day by the converse shoes clock gucci handbags within his house; he can get on, he thinks, very well without being able to do so; therefore, from this one omission, it is easy to come to a nike roshe run conclusion as to what a sluggard’s part the ray ban man would have hollister played christian louboutin shoes in life but for the dispensation of Providence; nothing but extreme agony could have air max induced such toms outlet a man to nike roshe do anything useful. He still continues, with all he has acquired, with all air max his juicy couture outlet usefulness, and with all his innocence of character, without any proper oakley sunglasses sense of religion, though he has attained a rather advanced age. Lavengro relates the lives of people so sac michael kors far asics shoes as they were placed before him, replica watches but no further. It was certainly a great defect links of london uk in so montre femme good longchamp outlet online a man to be without religion; it was likewise a great defect in so learned a man not to be able to tell hypervenomx turf what was o’clock. It is probable that God, in His loving kindness, will not cheap oakley sunglasses permit that man to go out of the world nike blazer pas cher without religion who knows but some powerful minister of the Church, full of longchamp zeal for the glory of God, will illumine that hollister canada man’s dark mind perhaps some clergyman will come to coach outlet the parish who will visit him and teach him his duty to his God. Yes, it is very instyler ionic styler probable that such a man, before he dies, will have been made to love his God; whether he marc jacobs handbags will ever learn to know iphone 6 case what’s o’clock is bottega veneta another matter. It is probable that nike trainers he will ghd go out of the world without knowing what’s o’clock. michael kors outlet online It is vans outlet not so necessary to be nike huarache able to tell the time of day by the clock as to know one’s God through His inspired word; a man insanity workout cannot get to heaven without religion, but a burberry pas cher man can get there very comfortably without knowing what’s o’clock.
But, above all, the care and providence of God are lululemon outlet manifested in the polo ralph lauren outlet case of Lavengro himself by the manner in which he is polo ralph lauren enabled to make his way in the world up to a certain period michael kors outlet without falling a prey either to vice or poverty. baseball bats In soccer shoes his history there is a wonderful illustration of part of the text, quoted oakley pas cher by his mother: ‘I have been timberland young, and now am old, yet never saw I the righteous forsaken or karen millen his seed begging bread.’ He is the son of good and honourable parents, gucci but at the critical period of life, that of entering into mcm handbags the world, he finds himself without any earthly friend christian louboutin outlet to birkin bag help him, yet he manages to make his way.
