‘Nymphomaniac’ Director’s Cut Now on VOD (NSFW Video)

'Nymphomaniac' Director's Cut Now on VOD (NSFW Video)

Lars von Trier’s wildly unrestrained psychosexual opus is the gift that keeps on giving. While the original bifurcated — though hardly coy — Volumes I and II are already streaming on Netflix, the great Dane’s five-and-a-half-hour director’s cut of this controversial epic starring Charlotte Gainsbourg as the title sex addict is now available on paid VOD platforms including iTunes and Amazon.

Von Trier’s definitive version, which most recently screened at Fantastic Fest, digs deeper into the lusty Joe’s (played by Gainsbourg in adulthood and Stacy Martin as a young woman) Freudian beginnings, including her too-close relationship with her father (Christian Slater). And there is of course lots more explicit sex and talk of fly-fishing with Stellan Skarsgard as the man who rescues Joe from herself. (The very, very NSFW clips below serve up just a taste of the action.)

Now vying for European Film Awards, “Nymphomaniac” divided critics throughout its festival run and two-part theatrical debut earlier this year. But as yet another cut of the film rolls out, Lars von Trier wants to make sure we don’t forget his pièce de résistance. Our review of Volume I is here; Volume II here.
