Red-band trailer for Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac might get you fired if you watch it at work

11.22.2013

I just don't think NSFW would cut it as we often brush that off, but seriously, unless you want to get caught watching porn at work I'd wait til you're at home or behind closed doors for this one. It shouldn't be that shocking to hear that, though, as it's kind of expected from director Lars Von Trier and for a movie called NYMPHOMANIAC. And, in truth, the movie looks like a pretty good "shockfest" in terms of what's being displayed in a psuedo-mainstream film (I say that, as I highly doubt this will get a wide release, particularly in the U.S.). Titillating, controversial, and well-shot, the film will no doubt ruffle feathers and it feels like that may be the only reason it exists.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

A self-diagnosed nymphomaniac recounts her erotic experiences to the man who saved her after a beating.

I'm not really a fan of Lars Von Trier, although this does look enticing in an almost depraved way. Is this really art or are we watching it for the sick thrill? It's hard to say, really, and I'm sure there will be much debate once it hits theaters. I'm certainly intrigued, even at a base level.

NYMPHOMANIAC, starring Charlotte Gainsburg, Uma Thurman, Shia LaBeouf, Stellan Skarsgård, Connie Nielsen, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater, Udo Kier, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Stacy Martin, and Willem Dafoe, hits Denmark on December 25, 2013 with other European cities shortly after. No U.S. date has been announced.

Hate Trier's work, but this looks really... good.

I can not stand any of Lars von Trier's films, but this one does look pretty spectacular on an artistic level. I'm all for more psychosexual films!

I can totally understand not being a Lars Von Trier fan. He is certainly not for everyone. However, I believe that there is absolutely artistic value in sex, and I'm not going to start getting all bothered by this and prudishly write it off as "porn" before I even see it.

Nothing against Lars, but I stay away from sex-heavy artsy films like this because they ALWAYS leave me depressed. In my own little world, sex and porn means lighthearted happiness, and heavy emotions and depressing scenarios means, well, sadness. Mixing the two leaves a shitty feeling in my chest, so I'll have to think real hard (no pun intended) about watching this.

There is something powerful here. But - I have to wonder if it's being used to mask vulgar. If the drama stands only to allow the shock value through the door - then it loses its credibility and it all comes crashing down in a heap of shock til' you drop film-making. Lars has "something" with his films, but I think he's far from mastering it.

I'm a fan of Lars Von Trier

Dancer in the Dark was utterly depressing, Antichrist gets better with each viewing, and Melancholia was decent. I look forward to anything this man puts out.

"What's the Bridge between Porn & Art? Who Determines it"

That question doesn't make sense. Did you mean "difference?" Otherwise, you're asking "what connects porn and art" and that doesn't make sense. If so, I'd say "nothing?"

The bridge reference is meant to represent a crossing (i.e. where does one cross into the other).

It's not Shakespeare, but I'm sure you got the point.

shock value content on par with Human Centipede or A Serbian Film.

waste of financial investment. lars should have shot it on his handycam like he did in the 90s and financed it himself.

Yeah I'd say......

.....that's just a little bit on the graphic side. It does look interesting if they handle the real life consequences well enough. It has the opportunity to be both sensationalistic and impactful. We'll have to see if he can pull that off.

Didn't think it was that over the top until I saw the blowjob. Won't be seeing that scene in the US! Movie could be interesting, but definitely not a must see for me.

@Deejay

Indeed. There are actual sex acts that could easily be confused (validated?) as porn.
