The First ‘Nymphomaniac’ Image Is Like a ‘Highlights’ Hidden Pictures, But with Sex Acts

Credit: Magnolia Pictures

Filmmaker Lars von Trier is all about foreplay. His upcoming movie Nymphomaniac (starring Shia LaBeouf) might deal with sex addiction in the most ferociously head-on way possible — by having its actors actually sleep with each other — but until release, the writer/director is toying with his audiences. Or flirting with them, rather. Von Trier dropped some subtle sexuality in the first poster for the film, a proverbial Rorschach Test honing in on our Freudian impulses. In this latest visual venture, von Trier cranks up the volume on his provocative message, creating the equivalent to a Highlights Hidden Picture puzzle in an image just loaded with suggestive material.
