Lars Von Trier’s latest, The House That Jack BuiltShare
With its brilliant cast, grim plot, and imagery, the film divided audiences as well as critics. Set in the 1970s, The House That Jack Built narrates the making of a serial killer for 12 years through his own point of view. The killer is played by Matt Dillon, in a brilliant performance, and the film plays with the conventions of the genre as sharply as possible. Provocative as ever, Lars Von Trier once again challenges his audience in his latest film which premiered at Cannes. The cast also includes Bruno Ganz, Uma Thurman, and Riley Keough.
