Shia LaBeouf is the sleaziest boss ever in this clip from Nymphomaniac
I was not sure what to expect from Shia LaBeouf in Lars Von Trier's NYMPHOMANIAC, but I also wasn't expecting him to impersonate Ricky Gervais as David Brent on the BBC version of THE OFFICE. I mean, the mannerisms, the voice inflection, everything is patterned after the douche boss character that inspired Steve Carrel's Michael Scott.
But then you add the sex. While this brief clip does not contain any nudity, it does end on a note that feels like it comes straight out of any standard corporate HR training on what not to do with your employees. We can obviously guess where all of this leads after seeing yesterday's NSFW image showing LaBeouf and Stacy Martin who plays the young woman in this scene.
It is still tough to tell whether Von Trier will be sticking with his typical Dogme 95 protocol or will be keeping his more artistic/slow motion overload style from recent films ANTICHRIST and MELANCHOLIA. Either way, I am intrigued by this film.
