    Fantasic article, really enjoyed reading! and very topical too! I think Pierrot le Fou (starring Karina) is a perfect example of a woman’s sexual hold over a man..

    Thanks for your comment Dutch Eric! Absolutely, i think there is enough in there to make you think but it remains interesting, interlectually, visually, sonically etc!

    Thank you for reading! I totally agree! I’m really looking forward to being inspired by Nymphomaniac! I think that’s one of the biggest things i take away from LvT films, he makes me inspired to write/make my own films! They’re so fresh! haha! that would be a pretty intense night!

    I definitely think it was well made, content wise however, i found it a little predictable.. Thank you! i look forward to writing it!

    Thank you very much David! I know aha! For the record i was not a big fan of Shame, i think Nymphomaniac will have a lot more to it..

    Thank you for reading! I absoultely agree! And of course voyeurisim would be perfect considering we (will) be watching a film about a woman telling/showing us her sex life!

    Thank you Brent D. In my opinion i dont feel that LvT is merely pushing cinema for the sake of it. I think he’s forthwright about his films being controversial, a little self-seeking maybe, but i dont think it’s just empty controversy..

    I think the results, as with many films, equate to entertaining, visually interesting movies that say something about the world we live in. i think Melancholia for example is a beautiful way to look at mental health posing as an almost disaster movie.. in this way depression = literally the end of the world and then on another level its LvT’s retort to hollywood blockbusters. i care about that aha! His films often remind me of a good book, there is a lot to think about, lots of levels.. So it may not change the face of the world but i certainly dont think its just empty controversy!

    Obviously he is a very contentious director, i mean i do find his films to elicit real emotion and i do find them entertaining, but Eidem said earlier it’s definitely personal taste!
