Nymphomaniac Lars von Trier
With Lars von Trier sticking to the vow he made following Nazi-comment-gate to no longer speak to the press or do interviews, it means that if you want to hear the director speak, you'll have to dig into the archives. And luckily, the folks at The Seventh Art have done just that.

Nymphomaniac
While it's not nearly as provocative as the very NSFW version that dropped late last year, the U.S. trailer for "Nymphomaniac: Volume 1" will surely still raise a few eyebrows. And for fans, it offers up new footage and voiceover as well, to ease you in to Lars von Trier's latest assault on the sense and intellect.

Nymphomaniac press conference
Yes, Shia LaBeouf stole the show, aping from or homaging a 1995 press conference appearance by maverick footballer Eric Cantona today at the Berlin Film Festival. But aside from that prankster move – some say veering towards Joaquin Phoenix-like performance art – the press conference went off like it normally might have.

Lars von Trier is going to Hell. The devil, after all, has all the best tunes, and on the evidence of "Nymphomaniac Part 1," which has its world premiere in its unexpurgated, director-preferred 145-minute version at the Berlin Film Festival, von Trier is a maestro at his zenith, conducting what may very well be his magnum opus. It is a symphony, or perhaps a thrusting, punk-inflected heavy metal power grind of rude, funny, sexy, sad, gross, pretentious, meta and brilliant, and sometimes all of these things at the same time. But out of what should be discordant, salacious, self-indulgent and ugly, von Trier, through sheer storytelling and filmmaking chutzpah, has crafted something witty and clever and thrilling, that absorbed our attention like a sponge and displayed, beneath all that brio, a kind of wisdom we haven't seen before from the filmmaker.

A strange afternoon in Berlin today. Lars Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac Part 1” (the long version that hasn’t been seen until now) screened this morning at the Berlin Film Festival, and the press conference that followed had a few head-scratching moments. First off, Lars Von Trier himself showed up wearing a Cannes “Persona Non Grata” T-shirt (an overt reference to his banning from the French festival the year “Melancholia” played), but kept his vow to no longer speak to press by not appearing in the press conference.

Nymphomaniac
With a surprise screening at the Sundance Film Festival, and a debut of the uncut first part at the Berlin Film Festival next month, it's safe to say Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac" is still one of the most talked about movies of the year.

Nymphomaniac Trailer
It seems with each passing day the plans are changing for Lars von Trier's provocative sex epic "Nymphomaniac" (which dropped a raunchy trailer last week with plenty of NSFW moments), and in particular, his preferred edit. Word emerged earlier this month that the version of the film heading into release in Denmark and Norway next month and in France in January will run 4 hours long—90 minutes shorter than the director's cut—playing in two parts. Shortly after that, producer Peter Aalbæk Jensen seemed put it on von Trier's shoulders as to the fate of the longer cut, saying, "...it belongs entirely to Lars von Trier to show his personal version, why not in a large festival or in a DVD or Blu-ray Collector's Edition?" But it now seems von Trier's 5 1/2-hour version will see an official release.

Nymphomaniac, trailer
And we all thought “Antichrist” was fucked up—sexually, emotionally and psychologically. Though Lars Von Trier did a moody left turn with his operatic depression comedy “Melancholia” (hear me out—the first half with the wedding from hell is hilarious... the rest, admittedly not so much), it’s entirely possible “Antichrist” was just a warmup for his latest movie, the four-hour (maybe 5.5 hrs one day) “Nymphomaniac,” which, at least from the trailers, proves that Von Trier has not mellowed with age and isn’t done challenging or terrorizing his audiences.
