Palmat's rating of the film Nymphomaniac: Volume I

I've always loved von Trier's movies but this time around I cannot rally behind Denmark's enfant terrible. Everything on display reeks of pretentious psychobabble and literally goes nowhere and offers no insight in the matter at hand. It might be well put together and well acted but von Trier is too full of himself to edit his ideas which makes this close to a complete mess.
