WATCH: Trailer for Lars von Trier’s ‘Nymphomaniac’ Isn’t Just NSFW; It’s Simply Not Safe

Nymphomaniac“I do not give a fuck.” To my knowledge, these words have not been spoken in a Lars von Trier film, though they’ve more than likely been said by the deranged auteur on numerous occasion. For all the trouble that his fuck-it-all attitude has gotten him into in public, his films have maintained a careful hinging in “for the sake of the art” necessity. All the gratuitous torture porn of Antichrist can still be rooted in the artistic necessities of the film.

Well, now we have Nymphomaniac, so if his previous films were hemmed in by… er… good taste(?), there’s nothing holding Lars back this time around. The film’s full trailer offers us a glorious bounty of naughty school girls, whoring beds, dripping cum and… well, quite a lot of things. It’s marketing in the purest sense of the term, giving us every reason we could ask for to see a movie called Nymphomaniac. Shy of talking animals, of course, though we wouldn’t put it past Lars.

Past all the embraced sexuality on display, we should know this isn’t a half-hearted stunt from von Trier. He’s never toiled over any disgusting turf without reason to his unapologetic madness, and whatever the reason is behind this 5-hour epic, it’ll almost certainly afford Charlotte Gainsbourg yet another meaty, vigorous role to submit herself to. Nymphomaniac does not yet have a domestic release date, but do keep an eye out for it when it does. Check out the trailer below if you dare (UPDATE: YouTube took the trailer down for “explicit nudity”, a hilariously obvious move, so check out the trailer here), and then weigh in on it below.

    I ignored the NSFW warning and played it during work.

    The look on the faces of my coworkers was priceless.

    “Wait. That wasn’t spit she was dribbling, was it?”
