Review of Nymphomaniac: Vol. II (2013)

Wow that is definitely an unexpected way to start a film. If you know nothing about the film or Lars Von Trier it would definitely catch you off guard. I like that she comments how ridiculous the mathematics is. I can see why they use the black screen to emphasize sounds, but I think it would be better fitted in a book not a movie. I feel as if Jamie Bell is a much different, more intense kind of Christian Grey (Fifty Shades of Grey). I say that not having actually seen that movie, but knowing that the character K has no romanticizing qualities. This entry is way more brutal, intense, and disturbed than the first part. I'm glad that it was Shia LaBeouf who played the eldest version of Jerome. The characters started off quite likeable, but then they all become so despicable. I think honestly the only good people in these films are Joe's Father and Younger Jerome. There are some scenes that are quite uncomfortable and disturbing to watch. It isn't easy to suggest films like this to others unless they are aware of the content and it interests them.

-It's basically porn, but has an actual plot
-The acting is quite good
-The philosophical aspect is quite interesting

-At times it gets a little too brutal for me
-The ending
-Seligman who was almost another one of the only 2 respectable characters attempts to rape Joe in her sleep(his reasoning is even worse)

I actually hated how it ended. This was just insane. It was interesting and a decent watch. It isn't however something I would watch again or at least not in its entirety. Visually this movie is actually quite nice to look at given the content. If it had ended differently I would have enjoyed this more, but as it stands I didn't really enjoy this volume.
