You're Danish director Lars von Trier. You've made a couple of interesting films during your life. The rest are pretentious, incoherent disasters, in which you reach deeper and deeper into your bag of non-politically-correct tricks in order to shock the European movie-viewing audience. This is hard to do, since they have already seen a lot of shocking movies, many filmed by directors with more talent than you.
Although the film subsidies keep flowing, the viewers seem to getting a little bit bored, especially by the time you release 1998's The Idiots, a Disneyesque feature about a commune whose members go out into restaurants and stores and pretend to be mentally retarded or insane by day. They drool and scream and knock things over, attracting quite a bit of attention. Then they return to their comfortable villa at night for orgies. The audience isn't very impressed.
It's time to win them back, which you do by launching a filmic jihad against the United States of America. You direct a series of movies which are little more than self-righteous, bitterly critical tirades against that nation. The fact that you have never visited this nation and do not speak its language is no hindrance, of course. Things are going well! The new movies are called "thoughtful" and "provocative." You're getting back your audience using the controversial bad-boy technique of openly pandering to their prejudices. (Good thing you just happened to pick the USA and not, say, South Africa as your target)
Then disaster strikes. A right-wing Danish politician is concerned about Denmark's immigrants, who don't seem to be fitting in very well. He warns Danes that they must fight a "long and bitter Kulturkampf", which raises an eyebrow or two. At first this seems to have nothing to do with you. Bu then the politician assigns a group of culture bureaucrats draws up a list of 108 glorious Danish masterpieces in 7 different categories. (One of the chosen works is the Danish version of Donald Duck). And what do these bourgeois prigs do do? They pick one of your films! And not just any one of your films, they pick The Idiots (German)!
Gaack! What's a bad-boy to do? Soon little Ahmed will be watching good-looking young bourgeois Danes drooling and penetrating each other on a grainy videotape in his school classroom. And told to venerate it as a masterpiece! Immediate action is required. You go on Danish T.V., and, well, we'll let the newspaper article take it from there:
The Danish director Lars von Trier, whose film "The Idiots" was also named in the cultural canon, protested against the entire plan as a "nationalization of culture," during a television appearance in which he cut apart the red-and-white Danish national flag, the "Danebrog", sewed it back together as a completely-red flag, and hoisted it again. All the while he played "The Internationale" in the background.
Communism? Is that the best you can do, Lars, baby?
