The blackly comic thriller, which stars Matt Dillon and Uma Thurman, follows the murder spree of a serial killer over the course of several decades. That being said, as someone who isn't a huge Lars on Trier fan, I gotta admit I'm pretty eager to see how this one is going to turn out. However, he was once again welcomed as "The House That Jack Built" was screened outside of the competition this year.
More than 100 people left the screening of The House That Jack Built on Monday night, Variety reported.
Lars Von Trier is a cinematic enfant bad, continually provoking the medium's established narrative and stylistic tropes in favour of a more transgressive viewing experience. Lars von Trier took on the project as his first feature since writing and directing his 2013 film "Nymphomaniac". Speaking to the Guardian at the time, he said that the film will celebrate "the idea that life is evil and soulless, which is sadly proven by the recent rise of the Homo trumpus - the rat king". Another tweeted that the movie was "vile" and "should not have been made".
Outrage at a new Lars von Triermovie is practically a Cannes Film Festival tradition at this point. 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. "The House That Jack Built is a dark and sinister story, yet presented through a philosophical and occasional humorous tale". He views each murder as an artwork in itself, even though his dysfunction gives him problems in the outside world. As the inevitable police intervention is drawing nearer, he is taking greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork. Let us know what you think. Setoodeh reports that the film received a standing ovation at the Cannespremiere, which prompted someone sitting near him to declare: "They'll clap for anything".
