Director Lars von Trier Says He's a Nazi and Sympathizes with Hitler at Cannes Film Festival
Lars von Trier loves to shock. Just watch his movies. But he also likes to say shocking things. Remember when he said former President George W. Bush dreamed of being whipped by Condoleezza Rice? Well, now he says that he's a Nazi who can "understand" Hitler.
At a Cannes film festival news conference, he said he found out "he was really a Nazi, because my family was German ... which also gave me some pleasure. ... I understand Hitler. But I think he did some wrong things. Yes, absolutely ... I sympathize with him a little bit."
