One of the most talked about movies of the year is also one of the longest movies of the year. Lars von Trier‘s “Nymphomaniac” has been creating buzz ever since it was first announced. And after opening earlier this year in theaters, now’s the time to see the Dogma 95 Doyen’s epic as he fully intended —the extended, five-and-a-half-hour director’s cut is on VOD today, and the Playlist is delighted to take you behind-the-scenes with this exclusive featurette.

Featuring insights from the cast, including Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf and Stellan Skarsgard, this preview for the film explores the intersection of love and sex that von Trier tackles therein. This is art, as Skarsgard says, just not presented on the usual canvas you might expect, but as seen through von Trier’s distinct vision.

“Nymphomaniac —Extended Director’s Cut” is on VOD right now in the United States, Canada, Spain, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Estonia and Denmark. Watch below.
