Nymphomaniac: Volume II 4.0 stars

Movie poster


...violence become one and the same as Gainsbourg, no longer reliant on Stacy Martin to play her in flashback, steps up to the plate with a stinging S&M relationship she consents to with Jamie Bell in hope of finding the recipe to rekindle her libido. Once our suspicions concerning Seligman’s virginity are confirmed, the pending curtain-act punch line becomes a hilarious, hotly anticipated, and foregone conclusion. It’s one of those cases where we know precisely how it’s going to end, but the director sets us up for the obvious in such a manner that we eagerly agree to stick around to see how he does it. Von Trier’s serrated take on a society so covetous and steeped in jaded lust that nothing short of a raw sexual encounter can get them off makes this the most darkly amusing satire of it’s kind since David Cronenberg’s Crash.
