Lars Von Trier’s Racy ‘Nymphomaniac’ Gets Two-Part Release From Magnolia
BY MIKE FLEMING JR | Deadline
   
After much foreplay in the form of increasingly graphic trailers that to me skate the edges of pornography, the release plan for Lars von Trier‘s Nymphomaniac has come together. Magnolia Pictures has announced that von Trier has cut his work into two films. The first, Nymphomaniac: Part One, will open in theaters March 21 after premiering on-demand March 6. This will climax in the April 18 release of the second film, which first will be on-demand April 3.

Von Trier is no stranger to controversy, as witnessed by the dopey comments he made promoting Melancholia which resulted in getting banned from the Cannes Film Festival, but the subject matter of this film should sell itself. In fact, he has vowed to do no press as both films premiere in Denmark on Christmas Day. Despite that, I wouldn’t be surprised if Magnolia has itself a multi-platform juggernaut that could be reminiscent of Last Tango In Paris, a squarely adult art film with something for everyone. That includes the voyeur crowd, as Magnolia boasts it has an unprecedented amount of explicit sex. The films haven’t yet been rated, but getting an R would probably work against the multi-platform release pattern of this pic.

The first film tells the story of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is badly beaten and left in an alley. She’s helped by an older bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), who takes her into his home. As he tends to her wounds, she recounts the erotic story of her adolescence and young-adulthood (portrayed in flashback by Stacy Martin). This film stars Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen and Udo Kier. The second part focuses on Joe’s adulthood and stars Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe, Mia Goth and Jean-Marc Barr in addition to Gainsbourg, Skarsgård, Martin and LaBeouf.

On demand? So...people are gonna be able to download it illegally before the actual physical release?  :ponder: Are they thinking about a premiere on YouPorn too?  :ponder:

Chapter 7: The Mirror
The image you see in a mirror will at first glance seem like an exact replica of the object you're looking at. However, this is in fact false, as the object will always be a mirrored, and thus flawed, version of the original object.
Joe tries to rid herself of her sexuality.

NYMPH()MANIAC I :

Well. It's weird to say something right now, because it's just half a movie. First, I was surprised; the movie was funnier than what I expected, very entertaining. It's all about style too. The character of Joe isn't very interesting, though. But I've never loved Lars Von Trier; so, it can move people...? It's a weird but coherent object. A lyrical/punk filmmaking. But it feels something like LVT doesn't care about his subject, or doesn't say interesting things about it.

I can't really say anything else, I miss a big part of the movie. I'll watch it next week.

Volume I is available to rent now:

$9.99

Youtube
Amazon
Flixfling


I'm assuming those are all 1080p. Certainly the YouTube must be.

There are some torrents up of volumes I and II but they all appear to be 480p. Yuck.

See other on-demand options here.

This is his actual masterpiece.
Don't ruin it for yourself by waiting weeks between the two parts, the break-point functions as an intermission at best.

I don't know how I could even address such a huge, throbbing, veiny, engorged film after just having tasted it once, so this post is going to be as loose as the titular character's vagina and try not have any plot leakage.

At the beginning of the film, Skarsgard namedrops One Thousand and One Nights, The Decamaron, and The Canterbury Tales as books that constitute his sexual education.
This is the first of the dozens winking self-reflections in the course of the film, more on that later.
What places this in the pre-novelistic traditions of those book is not only the most traditional framing device that they share, or the episodic self-contained nature of the stories, or the wild erudite digressions into seemingly random topics, or how those stories wear their metaphors on their sleeves, but also one of their main themes- the commingling of sex with violence and death.

Scheherazade and Shahryar's marital bed(the frame story of 1001 Nights) is a scene where the King(Shahryar) has killed dozens of his previous wives after spending one night with them to sate his jealousy, and his latest wife Scheherazade survives night-by-night thanks only to the spell of great storytelling. In the Decameron's frame-tale the storytellers have found refuge in a villa untouched by the Black Death all around it. I haven't read the Canterbury Tales. Skarsgard most tellingly omits 120 Days of Sodom, the most obvious antecedent.
While this sex-violence-death nexus has been thoroughly and directly explored in 20th century art, this film is still fresh,exciting, and punk rock in its exploration of what if anything seperates pleasure and anguish, with its cock shot slide-shows, its Godardian intrusion of text on images, split-screens,  discordant-at-first-then-clearly-appropriate music choices, its blurring of boundaries between the real
and imaginary, and its monologues indicting of political correctness and therapy sessions, and expressing sympathy for pedophiles.

Oh and it's really, uncomfortably funny.

<Mild spoilers>
Few interesting/amusing observations/self-references before I fall asleep.
The first bit of music once the story begins is Shostakovich's Waltz No. 2, you can guess how significant that choice is. This is the film where Nicole Kidman's character makes the choice she only fantasized about.
There's a recreation of the opening scene from Antichrist, complete with lascia ch'io pianga playing.
There's a scene where a collective of young nymphomaniacs who've formulated strict and untenable set of rules and conditions about how to go about having lots of sex.
Most of the films characters have single alphabet names. von Trier only bothers to make up names when there's some meaning behind them.
Joe- short for Joseph/Josephine meaning God Adds/Increases. The fibonacci sequence plays an important part in her story.
Seligman- Famous psychologist. Developed the Learned Helplessness theory for clinical depression
Jerome- I've got nothing, probably Hieronymus?

Okay, but where are you finding a good version of Volume 2? The 480p looks like garbage.

Some of the torrents are better quality than others, and the quality improves a bit after the initial dark alley scene but 480p doen't bother me because I've grown up watcing shit quality videos. You might want to wait a few days for a good release.
And I think 03 said he found a 1080p torrent.

What did you think about Vol II, Axoliti? I know it shouldn't be cut in two, but I liked Vol I a lot and hated Vol II. It lost all its melancholy and beauty to become stupid provocation and full of shit.
