I wonder who Bjork called to report this.

Isn't edgy realism his shtick?
 
2017-10-17 12:54:15 PM  
Considering his movies, is that really a surprise?

Lars should have stuck to pie.

stoli n coke: Considering his movies, is that really a surprise?


It's really not. Von Trier is, at times a fantastic director, but he's almost always a terrible person
 
2017-10-17 01:09:00 PM  
Considering how creepy his movies are, this does not surprise me.

Ever see Manderlay? Brice Dallas Howard fully nude. Yet, Von Trier makes it creepy.
 
2017-10-17 01:34:48 PM  
I had heard that Bjork vowed to never act again after doing Dancer in the Dark, so this doesn't surprise me.

The Google translation of the Dutch article is oddly appropriate for a Björk story:

His track record with actresses bears that out.  Bjork previously said her experience with Von Trier was enough for her never to do another movie again. Nicole Kidman also won't do any more of his films.

Again, from that article:
However, Lars von Trier rejects the charges against Jyllands Posten on Monday morning.
- It has not been the case. But that we were smoking unfriends, that's a fact.
"On the other hand, she delivered one of the greatest performances in my movies at all," he says.
Ritzau has attempted to speak to Lars von Trier, but he rejects via his PR agent, Christel Hammer, to comment more on the matter to prevent it from ending in mudslide.
Opposite Jyllands Posten, Trier's film producer, Peter Aalbæk Jensen, does not believe that there are teams in Björk's allegations.
- As far as I remember, we were victims. That woman was stronger than both Lars von Trier and me and our company together, he says.
- I therefore receive this with open mouth and polyps.

'Smoking unfriends'

I'd never paid him any attention until that utterly jaw dropping interview when he starts talking about Hitler.  You have to see it to believe it.

Every single one of those people is actually Bjork.

She's playing an elaborate game.

RminusQ: And which is going to next year's World Cup.


Amazingly, Bruce Arena didn't play Aron "Bacon" Johannsson, who is Icelandic-American. We actually might have qualified if we played him instead of Micheal Bradley.

Fun fact: Aron chose to play for the US instead of Iceland so he could go to the World Cup (He did in 2014).

It's one of the few movies I've walked out on, and that meant leaving the house.

I kind of hope she's lying because Dancer In The Dark was DEPRESSING ENOUGH ALREADY.
 
2017-10-17 03:37:32 PM  
Lars von Trier sexually assaulted my brain when he made me slog through both volumes of nymphomaniac only to find out it has no point whatsoever.

Although the actress who plays the young main chick is hot, no wonder Labeef tried to get er in.
 
2017-10-17 03:37:57 PM  
IMDB actually lists her as being in 45... but most seem to be music videos. However, let's not assume that a music video director can't also be a huge sleazeball! Give them some possible credit!

I dunno about the rest of you farkers, but Bjork is terrifying to me, like clown level of scary. That being said, would still like to go to Iceland because no one is there. If I ever get the chance, will have to make sure she is elsewhere when I do (shudders)

Music video directors are hired guns working at the whim of the record company or the artist.
Unless it's someone who's an already established filmmaker like David Fincher or Paul Thomas Anderson, the star of the video has veto power over what they will and won't do.

CSB:

I was at a Christmas party and I met a couple from Iceland (both gorgeous by the way).

I learned that because Iceland has such a small homogeneous  population there's a significant chance that someone you meet could be a relative.  So most everybody has a phone app that basically tells you if the person you're hitting on is a relative.

I explained that Kentucky has the same thing, the call it Tindr

So, if I moved there, I'm guaranteed to move up the dating chart just for not-being-from-there? Cool.

Michael Bradley is a midfielder and Aron Johannsson is a forward.  He should have left Wondolowski home in favor of youth.

Dax McCarthy WTF?  Where was Julian Green?

Bruce Arena is a Major League Soccer lackey, and that negatively influenced his personnel decisions.
