Lars von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac: Volume I” begins with a woman (Charlotte Gainsbourg) lying unconscious in a dark alley, badly beaten with multiple bruises on her face. A sympathetic priest (Stellan Skarsgard) discovers her, takes her home, and tries to figure out what happened.
Her name is Joe, and she’s a sex addict.
Based on the remarkable bestselling autobiography, THE RAILWAY MAN tells the extraordinary and epic true story of Eric Lomax (Colin Firth), a British Army officer who is tormented as a prisoner of war at a Japanese labor camp during World War II. Decades later, Lomax and his beautiful love interest Patti (Nicole Kidman) discover that the Japanese interpreter responsible for much of his treatment is still alive and set out to confront him, and his haunting past, in this powerful and inspiring tale of heroism, humanity and the redeeming power of love.

If you take all the sex scenes from Nymphomaniac and Blue is the Warmest Color, you have a top quality pornographic film directed by highly regarded auteurs. Why are these films critically acclaimed and respectable mainstream films and not regarded as porn, only watched in some red light district or in the privacy of your hotel room?

When Stellan Skarsgård finds Charlotte Gainsbourg unconscious in an alley, you believe he could carry the bleeding woman to authorities, take her in after she refuses care, you believe he’d serve her tea. Yet, Skarsgård is a familiar to filmmaker/provocateur Lars von Trier, and most memorably played a bedridden husband encouraging his puritanical bride (Emily Watson) to seek pleasure in the world of men (1996’s Breaking the Waves).
Well, after three years of talking about it, “Nymphomaniac: Volume I” is finally available to watch in the U.S. via OnDemand starting today. You still have to wait one more month for the second half, but hopefully, the first volume will be enough to keep you satisfied for now (and it should be — read our review).

The four-hour epic became the most talked-about indie of 2013 due to ever-more-explicit stills and clips, plus Shia LaBeouf, Charlotte Gainsbourg and especially Skarsgard giving their best O-faces: "All the women on set said 'Wow, that's sexuality incarnate,' and he's 62." This story first appeared in the Jan. 3, 2014, issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

Chris Hemsworth returns as the Nordic god of thunder and patron saint of linebackers in the sequel to Marvel’s Thor, unimaginatively titled Thor: The Dark World.
Viking bloodlust is a little too much for a tween comic book hero so Hemsworth plays his defender of worlds as a good-natured marauder.
