What's wrong with this picture?

American way of life attacked in films at Cannes:
CANNES, France (Reuters) - The dark underside of the United States has taken center stage in several films at Cannes this year, capped on Monday with a scathing attack of past and present racism in America by Danish director Lars von Trier.
Von Trier, whose fear of flying has prevented him from visiting the United States...
Ruh Oh! Don't worry though, ole Lars is a big expert on the USA anyhow:
...he said he enjoyed bashing America on screen because it invades his life even in Denmark.

"We are all under the influence -- and it's a very bad influence -- from America," said the 49-year-old Dane. "In my country everything has to do with America. America is kind of sitting on the world.
See what happens when you don't wear your tin foil beanie, Lars?
