Watch: Charlotte Gainsbourg Attempts to Quit Sex in Latest Clip From Lars von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac'

Another week, another clip from Lars von Trier's two-part "Nymphomaniac." The latest is culled from the seventh chapter of the film, titled "The Mirror." There are eight chapters total, so chances are the next one will be the last before the film opens next year.

Here's the rundown for the chapter per the film's website:

Chapter 7: The Mirror

The image you see in a mirror will at first glance seem like an exact replica of the object you're looking at. However, this is in fact false, as the object will always be a mirrored, and thus flawed, version of the original object.

Joe tries to rid herself of her sexuality.

Magnolia opens "Part One" on March 21 (available On Demand March 6), and "Part Two" on April 18 (On Demand April 3). Watch the clip below:

    I think the film looks to be a grotesque exploitative ode to female sexuality. (remember all of the rumors about von Trier being a disgusting misogynist whom his leading ladies wouldn't even sit at the same table as him and would spit at the mere mention of his name?) I also wonder about releasing so many clips beforehand. It works as promotion, but hurts the film imo. Really, do we need to see her taping up the corners of her furniture in the trailer?

    Hopefully, now, all those gleeful prudes who harbor the worst kind of schoolkid acknowledgment towards this film's sexual premise will start to think, and contextual associations to other works like Madame Bovary and The Awakening are remembered as positive representatives in the use of sex as an arc in storytelling, and how today those very works are not considered smut, or erotica (maybe not so much with Bovary), and how it's an interesting parallel with this movie's arc of Joe trying to quit sex as opposed to it being her stepping stone to personal freedom. Maybe someone who doesn't think they know the filmmaker's motives better than the filmmaker will have something to say!

    The flipside is pretentious academics who don't recognize that von Trier is making fun of them, too.
