I very well may have, but I based my opinions on several well articulated reviews/analyses about it from reliable sources. To be sure, a lot of people thought it was good, but I understand that graphic sex scenes played a significant part of the movie and in all irony that is a turn off for me and movies..

this is why i refrain from commenting on the horror film posts-- i don't like watching them much hence i don't know them.

True dat, and I totally respect that. Indeed, that is why I said my critique was on the premise of the film itself and not any particulars about it because I hadn't and wouldn't see it.

To be sure, I understand it is a film with a lot of substance.

yeah it's "heavy" and it delves into all sorts of stuff-- theology, fishing, mathematics, you name it. it's really pretty great but also pretty grim. not a feel-good movie. but an intelligent one. in spite of the surface brutality etc i think in the end it's pretty compassionate towards its main character. but i could't say. this is why i love european movies over americans-- it's never the goodies vs. the baddies and there is ample ambiguity and room for interpretation.

when i saw vol 1 it felt like a good and important movie, i loved the story and the digressions. vol 2 however felt a lot less fresh and propelled more by logical inertia than inspiration. i probably fucked up by watching them separately instead of together. the element of surprise was gone. unfortunately i cannot go back in time.

it's not really a horny movie at all. it's a fucking sad and depressing and weird movie-- at least the 4 hour version which doesn't have all the porno fucking.

it's still a good movie though-- charlotte gainsbourg as this twisted but very lucid creature and stellan skaarsgard as his nerd story sidekick make a solid pair. the girl who plays young joe does a good job acting. shia labeouf is adequate. uma will surprise you. the other guy from the 90s who plays the dad does great too.

the camera is, as usual with him, great & gorgeous-- and it even quotes other lars von trier movies from medea to kingdom hospital to antichrist and i'm sure i've missed others. if you watch it, do it all in one session or pretty close (e.g. 2 days) or some of the magic will be gone from it.

also try to watch the 5 hour version if you can-- not for the porno which i'm sure will only add to the sadness, but because in the 4 hour one it feels like the movie has some plot holes and disconnects. regrets...

What did you make of the character Liz?

liz… i can't remember that name… was that the receptionist at the print shop, i think?

eta: you mean the character or the actress?

i my version (4h) the character didn't have a big role (gatekeeper, then we're told about her, but her main role is briefly as jealous rival, kind of?)

Shia LeBouef's character's secretary, the one who interviews the young Charlotte Gainsbourg's character for her first job.

I'm intrigued by Necromaniac. Never watched much Von Trier stuff or really got too into his schtick. I also prefer my movies to be a neat 90 minutes - 2 hrs at most. Still, I'm intrigued by Necromaniac. Must be the porn.

yeah, "Good job, Liz!". i called her the print shop receptionist--hard to tell who was doing what in that office.

i didn't understand your question because it didn't seem to me a remarkable character in any way. perhaps i didn't notice something. the actress who played her did a great job reacting/relating to joe (great body language) but i don't have any thoughts about the character herself. what version have you seen?

i'm really curious about the longer version. for example, the posters show udo kier getting off with his eyes rolling behind his eyelids (great look for him ha ha) but in what i saw he's only a waiter. maybe something happens after that was cut out? or maybe the poster is just a gimmick. i wondering if the same thing happened to liz, or "the piano teacher".

5 minutes of GET ON UP, the James Brown biopic.

Took that long to hit at least 3 major biopic cliches. Why do I get the feeling there will be little discussion of the music? Any scene where Brown tells the band the emphasize the one-beat to make it funky? Do we get to see the moment Clyde Stubblefield comes up with the "Funky Drummer" beat and the part where Brown takes credit for what turns out to be the most sampled beat of all time? Doubt it. But wouldn't that be an interesting flick?

Several people told me it was good but I detest biopics on principle, its a total waste of what could have been an otherwise great actual documentary.
