At the beginning of the final chapter, the Molotov cocktail Joe throws at the car envelops the entire vehicle. When the shot cuts to Joe walking away, the car behind her is only partially aflame. The scene ends with a closeup of the car burning exactly as it was in the first shot. See more »
Freud says the opposite. He talks about the polymorphic perversion of a child. Meaning that in a child, all kinds of perversions exist. And then we use the childhood to diminish or remove some of them. Basically a child is sexually polymorphic and everything is sexuality in an infant.

This film tells the story of a woman who turns into dark sexual behaviour after discovering that just sex is not enough to satisfy her nymphomaniac urges.
In "Nymphomaniac: Vol. II", there is a lot of graphic sex. The sadomasochism is quite shocking and raw. There are many occasions when I was very surprised by how far the actors and actresses would go. How she descends into a pitiful state is sad. The second half of the film takes a turn into exploring another side of Joe's sexuality. Actually, "Nymphomaniac: Vol. II" explores almost all common sexual minority behaviours - it is almost an eye opener - and in some cases eye closer.
"Nymphomaniac: Vol. II" is a bit too extreme for my taste.
