As usual in Lars von Trier’s work Nymphomaniac is more about him, his views on cinema and the world than Joe, the protagonist (played by Charlotte Gainsbourg and Stacy Martin.) Structured through the account of a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, this sort of Arabian Nights that covers a wide variety of sexual practices is divided into almost autonomous chapters in which explicitness abounds, as well as evidence of the mise en scène skills of the director who invented the Dogma 95. And also his publicity skills, of course, because it’s impossible to ignore the colossal extra-cinematic stunt that points and hits the target of our morbidity and curiosity so that we don’t miss it. And this can be applied to those who love Von Trier, but also those who hate him. This tries to be his magnum opus, so the levels of pretension, cynicism, coldness and misanthropy exceed even those of his earlier work. Would it be too much to point out that the sex scenes that seem to arouse the director the most are those of S&M practices? FEJL
