Consensus: It doesn't quite live up to the promise of the first installment, but Nymphomaniac: Volume II still benefits from Lars von Trier's singular craft and vision, as well as a bravura performance from Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Provocative, droll, fearless, and cinematically sexual in unprecedented ways, "Nymphomaniac" (in its proper unedited form) is a four-hour movie with an unknown potential to alter reality.

It's self-referential and self-rewarding to the point that it has virtually no other content.

For better or worse, the whole exercise in lurid leg-pulling goes out with a bang.

A notch more watchable than Volume I.

It's either one of the worst pornos ever made or one of Von Trier's best films.
