Was I flagged here? I wasn't even rude or anything! Well I guess that I should repeat myself - I saw him talking after his film (very arrogant and dull), and I couldn't believe the stupidity of questions he asked people in his film... and then to be brave (stupid) enough to put it in the final cut... Worst thing I've ever seen in my life - 'Land der Vernichtung'
