Shia LaBeouf has been trying hard to shock us recently with his strange antics and odd outbursts. But in Lars Von Trier’s new film Nymphomaniac has he finally succeeded?

    Now his stint with Michael Bay is behind him, it's time to get quirky. I can not for the life of me see anything remotely interesting in Le...whatshisface. He just seems to be indulging in ridiculous shenanigans to garner attention of his new found "Indie" approach to work - "Lawless" and so on. It takes more than silly idiosyncrasies on Twitter to achieve that...Dude!

    I want to see this film now, just to see how bad Shia The Beef's accent is. Unfortunately, if I tell my friends, they'll think I'm just going to perv at the sex scenes.

    Despite turning in a terrific performance in Lawless, Shia LaBeouf is fast becoming a walking talking insult to people with learning difficulties, in that he continues to behave like he has some, when one can clearly assume he does not. Does this man not have 'people' who can advise him? An agent? A publicist? ….maybe some friends??

    I suspect many people might just shrug their shoulders, meh. Others will no doubt go further, perhaps making the suggestion that next time he use a plastic bag, with the words, 'I AM NOT TALENTED ANYMORE'. Me? I'm on the fence.

    ref Maclomhair - Hmm, not convinced on the external argument, i mean i'm English but can still hear that Mel Gibson is maybe not the most talented Scottish speaker in Braveheart, Gerard Butler is not very convincing as an Irishman in PS I love you, and that Ray Winstone (dear of him) is struggling with being American in The Departed
    On the subject of dodgy English accents though, who can forget poor Don Cheadle in Oceans 11?

    What's also shocking is that Mark's favourite cinema was just last week caught playing host to a real-life sex show....

    when i saw the trailer Nymphomaniac and the part with him talking in the office i assumed he was an american boss taking the mick out of a english co workers accent.
    surely this performance will enter such esteemed company as keane reeves in dracula and josh hartnett in blow dry.

    As for the LaBeoufian accent, that didn't bother me at all because, contrary to that Mary Pippins picture, the film isn't meant to be set in England but in an imaginary place populated by linguistic cosmopolitans such as Udo Kier and Stellan Skarsgard, that, if anywhere, has a decidedly more continental than British flavour. If the film were set in England it couldn't possibly have been about sex addiction because everyone in the world knows the British are too repressed to have sex.

    Unfamiliar with the Shia LaB'oeuvre, I didn't even recognise him in Nymphomaniac. I was more shocked by what that cute Billy Elliot kid has turned into. Must be the traumatic result of growing up in a mid-'80s miner's family.

    And I thought he was unhappy because he wasn't considered for the Frank Sidebottom movie. Either that or he wasn't happy being beaten to the idea by River Phoenix!

    Well he's just the male version of Miley C isn't he. Can't get attention via his talent (cos he ain't got none) so he has to engage in attention seeking nonsense.
