Wow. Interesting. You wonder what's really going on. 'Cause I don't buy it's beyond Von Trier's powers. Of course, if that's the way he felt. more power to him. But somehow I don't accept that's the whole story.

There's some hinting in the story that infighting among Wagner's descendants had an influence...unless I'm reading too much into it.

That would make sense -- that his descendants were as ornery as him. :-)

I'd focus more on the fighting with the divas bit.

Yeah, Von TRier seems to be real hard on his lead actresses. Bjork said that after making a film with him, she'd never make another movie. Kidman bowed out of a sequel to Dogtown. Watson and him had knock-down drag-outs.

Let's see, he treats his lead actresses like crap,...and all his recent films seem to be about...women who are treated like crap (Breaking the Waves, Dancer in the Dark, Dogville)...

Art imitating life, or vice versa? Think the man has some issues he needs to work out??

Don't know, but he's a great fucking director. He could screw chickens on TV and he'd get a pass from me. Good art is always the result of an artist with issues....
