Confessions, Part II

NymphomaniacFor someone whose work is mired in mental illness, sexual trauma, and the occasional apocalyptic disaster, Lars Von Trier can be a lot of fun. Nymphomaniac, his five-hour double feature, is one of the most bizarre and bizarrely enjoyable films of 2014 – it’s full-frontal, wildly self-indulgent, and crazy-good. Check out Part II, now on DVD, for very literal applications of Talking Heads’ Burning Down The House, an overuse of the word “lubricated”, and Billy Elliot all grown up.
