While it lacks the graphic content of Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac
, Love is rather beautifully shot and its 3D has style.
The star's film credits also include Disturbia, Nymphomaniac
But the police have made me out to be a mad nymphomaniac
, which is unfair.
ON THIS DAY LAST YEAR: Stacy Martin, the lead actress in controversial Lars von Trier film Nymphomaniac
, revealed she took her parents along to a screening.
Basic Instinct, Nine 1/2 Basic Instinct, Nine 1/2 Weeks, Nymphomaniac
Vols I Weeks, Nymphomaniac
Vols I and II.
Starring the Welsh actor and Sophie Kennedy Clark, who appeared in Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac
films, the series will follow a brideto-be, Lydia (Clark), who is given an island by her fiance.
Flanked by trusty manservant Jock Strapp (Paul Bettany), Charlie criss-crosses the globe in search of his prize, aided by dodgy car mechanic Spinoza (Paul Whitehouse), American billionaire Milton Krampf (Jeff Goldblum) and his nymphomaniac
daughter (Olivia Munn).
If the nymphomaniac
, whose lovers/hubbies change like once governments used to in Pakistan, was brazenly unflustered when the graphic details of her `hole-and-corner liaison' with an American pilot of Pakistani origin were accidently leaked on the Internet then a legal notice is just a teeny-weeny `pushover' for her.
In a film by a lesser director, or one less versed in what Leo Steinberg called "the condition of being both death-bound and sexed," what this protagonist needs (orgasm) and how often (up to ten times a day from age fifteen) would make for a rather simplistic exploitation film; in Nymphomaniac
, we are never sure who is being exploited.
While her Nymphomaniac
(it's the name of the film, not a description of him) co-star Shia LaBeouf made an idiot of himself wearing a paper bag on his head and talking like Eric Cantona, Uma was statuesque in a clinging floor-length Dolce & Gabbana gown and shrug.
He will star in the Filth with James McAvoy, sci-fi drama Snowpiercer and Nymphomaniac
in the next year.
Unlike the author though, our hero fell under the distracting influence of an adventurous nymphomaniac
, got involuntarily involved in a terrorist plot, chased Hurricane Katrina and ended up discovering a theory that predicts a nigh end for human civilization.
