mjgildea's rating of the film Nymphomaniac: Volume I

3 1/2 out of 5 stars. The 1st volume of Nymphomaniac only cemented my belief that Lars Von Trier is a consummate bullshit artist with an amazing eye. The on-screen breakdowns (Fibonacci numbers, the composition of Jerome) were fantastic but Uma Thurman stole the show, namely with her coining of the term "whoring bed." On the downside, I didn't like any of characters & Volume II doesn't look promising on that front.
