“Nymphomaniac”: Pornography or Art? You Decide.


3 Substance
Score


Movies about sex addiction face a particular dilemma: how to portray the sex. Nymphomanic, a film by Lars von Trier due out March 21, is sparking more controversy than any movie in a long time for its portrayal of a woman who self-identifies as a nymphomaniac (but not as a sex addict). The sex scenes are not only graphic but alternately brutal, empty or ecstatic. Many critics call it pornographic. The director defends it as a realistic portrayal of sex addiction and the sex captures the range of experiences common to many female addicts. Take a look at one of its trailers and tell us what you think.
