I read it scheduled to be released in the US theater in the Fall 2018 sometime .
Critics are there to criticize . My guess is the Film will in time, turn to be a Murder kill classic similar to the early 90's Oliver Stone ( Born Killers ) with Woody Harilson, which was also torn apart by critics back then . So you got to say sometimes ... " screw the Critics" .

The trailer looks to be just teasing/Hiding of the actual 'shock value' scenes that are truly there to be watched of the main character . It is Billed as ( physiological Horror/thriller ) and from watching the Trailer, looks to be 1st person view of the everyday life of a serial killer . So the film definitely looks to be be a pretty 'violent' NON Political Correct and void of fluffy unicorns and marshmallow dreams .
I don't really care much for Uma, But Matt Dillon is usally pretty Solid . so I WILL be watching for it for sure on the Home Streaming and might even go down the street and catch in a Theater on a weekday night for the full affect .

Most people will watch it on video in their homes because what kind of creep would go the theater to see it? So all the women and fags at Cannes had to virtual signal one another.

I bet it makes a nice profit.

The director makes these definitely arty European movies but he strips things down, very simple productions, no pretenses or bullshit. Good to have a whiskey and concentrate, it's not Quentin Tarintino bullshit.

I doubt this will be any more darkly disturbing than Antichrist was.
More than likely it has some message to get across that he feels needs to be told. Just an Nymphomaniac was all about sex while not being a "sexy" movie.

People walked out to that? Just seems like a more exacerbated Patrick Bateman if i'm to be honest. Hell i thought the trailer looked great, peaked my interest. Dillon is a solid actor, Uma Thurman is a very good actress, could be good.

The only film i've seen or skipped through rather to see why it was considered to be so horrific that it was NC-17 and cancelled everywhere was "A Serbian Film" it is truly grotesque. Both physically and morally it's subject matter downright appalling.

I forgot about AntiChrist that film was certainly grotesque as well, though still wouldn't put it above A Serbian Film.

What's always been strange to me is the physically grotesque stuff doesn't bother me so much as some psychological thrillers that just absolutely weirded me out. Stoker and The Talented Mr. Ripley come to mind. Stoker was very disturbing to me. Matthew Good kills it in that movie.

This guy Lars von trier is a fucking creep. That nymphomaniac abomination was a complete piece of shit. Portraying some cum dumpster as a piece of art.

Agreed, looks good to me. As to movies that freaked me the fuck out, 'Gone Girl' takes the cake.
