Lars Von Trier Has Lost His Mind. Again.
Director Lars Von Trier is now touting the "Lookey" concept, where movies are peppered with random images that have nothing to do with anything. Spot them all in his latest film and you win a prize. He's also using a camera powered by software that lets it move randomly whenever it wants. Huh? Lookey here, that's crazy. But of course Von Trier loves to make seemingly radical pronouncements (like Dogme 95) and then happily ignoring them while the media obsesses over their meaning. He's as much a showman as an artiste.
