I posted a comment yesterday (to the article "Danish director.....understands Hitler"). But of course - the issue here is not freedom of speech, but the ideas, brand, image and business of the Cannes festival. von Trier cracked some bad jokes, based on his well-known and documented bad taste. He is not a nice and balanced PC-person. He said that the next movie with Kirsten Dunst should be a hardcore porn movie. The Cannes Directors are hypocrites. von Trier is brilliant and disgusting. What a silly spectacle in Cannes!
