The number of chapter headings both in this film and Nymphomaniac: Vol. II (2013) that begin with "The" also reflects the Fibonacci sequence numbers that are constantly entwined with Joe's life: Five ("The Compleat Angler," "The Little Organ School," "The Eastern and the Western Church (The Silent Duck)," "The Mirror" and "The Gun") and three (""Jerôme," "Mrs. H" and "Delirium").

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 »
Perhaps the only difference between me and other people was that I've always demanded more from the sunset; more spectacular colors when the sun hit the horizon. That's perhaps my only sin.

Regarding all the critics and expectations for a topic presented like that, I would just say that this could not keep me interested for more than 10 minutes on the movie. The first music itself (rammstein) at least tries to gain your attention, makes me remember some psychological movie, which would at least makes you feel disgusted (like Srpski Film) or disoriented (like Irreversible), and make you think a little bit on the point of having watched it, to gain a certain sensibility, or a different perception on a specific case.
After the song, all I could see was a porn movie, filmed on a couple of bizarre angles, with a little but none background, of a person who is sad, boring, with a depressing tone of voice, and some pseudo-cult aspects. Sad, plain sad. Boring, plain boring.
Luckily, I was able to awake my mind from this non-thrilling and boring story, after Rammstein song started to play again on the credits.
I like to keep track of the notes given on the movies on IMDb, but his undeniably DO NOT deserve this hype. If I knew, I would keep distance of this specific story, but as a movie lover, unfortunately I'll need to watch the 2nd part.
