Danish director Lars Von Trier has been banned from the Cannes Film Festival in France after he made controversial comments about Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.

The moviemaker shocked reporters and critics at a press conference for his new release Melancholia on Wednesday when he went off on a tangent about his German ancestry and how he can "understand" and "sympathize with" Hitler. He went on to claim he's "not against Jews" but then launched a rant about Israel, branding it a "pain in the a**."

Von Trier - whose new film premiered to great acclaim from journalists - was forced to apologi...

Marilyn Manson: Powdery white skin. Jet-black hair. No smile on his crimson lips or in his smoky, contact-lensed eyes.

Though he caused the stir when he burst onto the music scene in the 90's, his signature skinny black suits have now been co-opted by Emo kids and Pete Wentz has him beat when it comes to eyeliner. Even if his ghoulish look no longer shocks, no question the man is haunted: His 1997 autobiography was entitl...

The Cineplexes Are Alive With The Sound Of Music: The Return Of The Movie Musical

On April 22's episode of American Idol, renowned composer and lyricist Andrew Lloyd Weber stood patiently trying to teach a blank-eyed Jason Castro the song, "Memory" from one of history's most popular musicals, "Cats." Smiled the clueless Castro, "I didn't even know a cat was singing it."

Quell'horror! Is this the extent of musical theater knowledge possessed by today's generation? In fairness, Castro is from Texas, not exactly around the corner from Broadway. Perhaps had there been a big-screen version of "Cats," more people under the age of 30 would be hip to the magic and majesty...

Icelandic singer Bjork does not rate her performance in Dancer In The Dark despite winning an industry award for the role. Bjork admits she only took on the part to please director Lars von Trier because he had also given her the opportunity to write the soundtrack.

Her role won the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2000, but the singer reveals she hasn't actually watched the movie.

She tells gay magazine Attitude, "There's a misunderstanding that I don't want to act because of that movie, but I never really wanted to. I made an exception because of the director. S...
