Nymph()maniac Review



The Flick: Notorious and controversial director Lars Von Trier attempts to shock and enlighten (?) his audience with his latest 2 part film about a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who recounts her erotic experiences to the man that rescues her after a beating. Bill and Erin sit through over 4 hours of this creation to tell you whether you should 'Pay for it or Wait for it!'... or just take a really long nap.

Vital Statistics:
Director: Lars Von Trier Starring: Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Stacy Martin, Shia LeBeouf, Christian Slater and Uma Thurman
Locations: A dark, damp, dingy apartment with stains on the wall and an overabundance of tea and books, Joe's person, wooded areas with soul trees
Controversy: August 2012: LaBeouf reveals during an MTV interview that he's worried about what he's gotten himself into because the sex scenes may be unsimulated. "For instance, there's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says we're doing it for real," he said. "Everything that is illegal, we'll shoot in blurred images. Other than that, everything is happening." The movie begins filming in Germany.
September 2012: Whoa there, Shia. Skarsgård contradicts LaBeouf's comments, telling THR that "body doubles" and "visual effects" will be used during the movie's sex scenes. "When we call this a porno, it's meant ironically, but irony doesn't work well in print," he said. "The film is sexually explicit, but, believe me, it will be a very, very bad wanking movie."
