bruh any touching can still be sexual harassment if it's unwanted.

"I think I will not be able to succeed without touching my actors."
....idk how this would have any impact on filmmaking...

I guess if you're trying to block something and the actor isn't getting it from verbal cues alone but even then, you can ask first and get an okay before putting your hands on another person.

he was super abusive to her to the point where she was losing it and not making sense in interviews. she has since said that due to this experience, she would never be in a movie again.

literally all of lars von trier movies are about horrific and abusive things befalling innocent women so he can get into the urn

This. I don't believe him. There's nothing he can say to make me believe him. Bjork's response was so extreme that I have no doubt she's being honest.

Not even Catherine Deneuve managed to say anything positive about the way Von Trier treated Björk and that was a red flag even back then.

really? I believe Bjork 100% but on the movie's documentary it seemed like Catherine was on his side.

I want to punch every person (male *and* female) who says "If it’s used the right way" about reporting rapes & assaults. Ever since Lena Dunham's comment about "it is a true shame to add to that number", assholes have been piggybacking off that. And yes, I know one of them would have used that idea with or without Lena saying it first but it still pisses me off.
