Talked to someone who walked out of the Lars von Trierfilm at Cannes: "He mutilates Riley Keough, he mutilates children... and we are all there in formal dress expected to watch it?" The film looks visually inventive, and I like the idea of Matt Dillon having a big role to sink his teeth into.
You just knew Lars Von Trier was going to stir up some drama with his grand return to Cannes (the filmmaker was banned for seven years as a "persona non grata" after making Hitler jokes while promoting Melancholia). However, Von Trier's movie led to more than 100 moviegoers leaving the theater before the movie was over because of the sadistic scenes, The Guardian reported.
Dozens of people walked out in disgust when The House That Jack Builtpremiered at Cannes, and while I can certainly understand their reasons, I was happy to stay all the way until the jaw-dropping ending. Gross. Pretentious. Vomitive. Torturous. That decision was greeted negatively in some quarters, with critics pointing to allegations made by the musician Björk, who said that Von Trier had sexually harassed her on the set of his film Dancer in the Dark. We follow the highly intelligent Jack through 5 incidents and are introduced to the murders that define Jack's development as a serial killer. Jack is telling Verge about five "incidents" he's picked from his murdering career, which seems to run through the 1970s in an unspecified USA town. He views each murder as an artwork in itself, even though his dysfunction gives him problems in the outside world. The House That Jack Built is an uncompromising, barbaric, distressing watch, and one very hard to stomach. As the inevitable police intervention is drawing nearer, he is taking greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork.
