Format: Blu-ray
Never one to shy away from controversy, director Lars von Trier strides boldly into territory where much of his audience is likely to feel more than a little squeamish. Nymphomaniac Vol 1 & Vol 2 is an unflinching look at the darker side of sexuality, the side that is usually the preserve of filmmakers with a much narrower artistic vision, whose work is usually available from specialty shops, and very late night television.

The most obvious talking point for this project will, of course, be the unflinchingly graphic sex scenes, and, in slightly more elevated conversations, the fact that the narrative is a woman's account of her sexuality - albeit one envisioned by a male director. The sexual vignettes which make up a significant portion of the film are introduced by conversations between the films two central figures, Joe and Seligman, played by Charlotte Gainsbourg and Stellan Skarsgård respectively, both of whom are as brilliant as long-time fans would naturally expect them to be.

The question always posed by films with explicit sexual content is whether artistic expression justifies its inclusion. Lars von Trier makes a bold and convincing case that sex, like anything else in human experience, is worth looking at directly and is as much a vehicle for legitimate artistic expression in film as anything else. Testifying in support of the director's case is a cast that includes such notables as Uma Thurman, Udo Kier, Willem Dafoe, Shia LeBeouf, Christian Slater, as well as the lovely Stacy Martin. The evidence of such a fine and reputable cast (some of whom you will see pictured on the box) should be enough to bring down a ruling that this is a film project at least worth watching and judging for oneself.

This is an edited version but it should not come as a surprise considering the 5 1/2 hour version has yet is be released. There was also a similar issue with Antichrist. Be patient and wait for the uncut version.

Amazon needs to make clearer that this is the 'R' rated EDITED/CENSORED version. I would not have bothered buying it, had I known. Now I know if pays to read the reviews as it looks like other people were fooled also. I didn't realise until I put it in my player. VERY VERY disappointed in this version and in Amazon.

Format: Blu-ray
This is the R-rated version, that says at the beginning of each movie "Edited & Censored" without the director's approval. My first problem came with the on-screen menu, which did not work with my BR player. I did get the movies to play, but with great difficulty. The first movie is blank (black) screen for 1:45 minutes, and then starts playing. If you are expecting the director's version, too bad. I am interested if anyone else has the issue with not getting the on-screen menu to work. Eric Field.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Director: Lars Von Trier

Main Stars: Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Stacy Martin, Christian Slater

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Part 1
2 out of 5 Part 2

On his way home Seligman (Skarsgard) finds a beat up woman (Gainsbourg) lying on the ground. He helps her up and takes her to his place. She tells him her name is Joe, that she is evil and a Nymphomaniac. He doubts that she is truly evil and so she decides to tell him her story to see if he still thinks that after hearing it. Lars Von Trier is nothing if not purposefully confrontational (just watch his interview that got him banned from the Cannes Film Festival). I’ve only seen two of his other films, although I still plan on seeing the well regarded Dancer In the Dark soon. Antichrist was a flawed, head trip of a film, but with out a doubt visually beautiful. In Melancholia he combined that visual flair with a story that resonated with me - he had created the perfect film. But it seems with his latest that he has become a victim to his own sense of genius. Split into two separate movies with the directors cut running over 5 hours of mostly dialog, exhausting is the world that comes to mind. The first one ends abruptly when Joe discovers she can no longer feel anything sexually. While that’s the so called ‘cliffhanger’ setup for Part 2, I guess most people will have tuned out by then. Part 1 actually isn’t bad. It explores her childhood and growing up with her Nymphomania and her relationship with her family, mostly her father played by Christian Slater. Stacy Martin who plays the younger Joe is absolutely mesmerizing to watch. Part 2 is mostly about Joe increasingly desperate to regain sexual satisfaction.
