Goofs

When Joe parks Jerome's Jaguar (after Jerome failing to do so), the shot from the outside shows that the car is parked between two other cars, one in front and one behind theirs. When however, the shot changes to the back seat towards the front, we see that there is no car in front, just empty road. See more »

big waste of my time
17 October 2014 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

Wow, what a waste of time! This movie made me physically nauseous. I literally had to take some Pepto-Bismol watching Charlotte Gainsbourg (ugh) talk about sex, her vagina and how she was lubricating. The characters are emotionless, the acting is horrible, the plot just a self-loathing story of her sexual experiences as a nymphomaniac. I mean the girl is having sex over and over again without any pleasure. I thought nymphomaniacs wanted to have sex because it gave them pleasure??! I am a big fan of indie, dark movies and this is just cr@p! I'd rather watch 50 shades of Grey...I think it would be deeper and less moralistic. I mean I've NEVER given a one star on Netflix but this was really painful to watch.
