The House That Jack Built

Matt Dillon Is a Full On Psycho in the Trailer for Lars Von Trier's The House That Jack Built

'The House That Jack Built' Trailer Reveals Lars Von Trier's Controversial Serial Killer Movie

And again, he has brewed up another storm as 100 members of the audience walked out of the movie screening at Grand Théâtre Lumière "disgusted" by what they had witnessed.

One reportedly said to Kyle Buchanan of New York Magazine: "He mutilates Riley Keough, he mutilates children. and we are all there in formal dress expected to watch it?".

Von Trier was until recently banned from Cannes due to comments he made during a press conference for his 2011 film Melancholia, which starred American actress Kirsten Dunst. "So they are expressed instead through our art". 'I think he did some wrong things, yes, absolutely, but I can see him sitting in his bunker in the end'.

There may have been a few walkouts throughout the film's more brutal scenes, but, like numerous director's films, there were plenty who found merit in it.

On the other side of the ball, he is sporting a superb slash line of.348/.392/.652 to go along with five home runs and 16 RBIs. The Angels got one back in the bottom of the third when Cozart scored on a chopper to third by Justin Upton to make it 3-1.

The story follows Jack (Matt Dillion), a serial killer, over the course of 12 years and depicts the murders that truly develop Jack as a serial killer. Matt Dillon takes the lead role of Jack, who has no problem with mutilating his victims.

Dozens of people walked out in disgust when The House That Jack Built premiered at Cannes, and while I can certainly understand their reasons, I was happy to stay all the way until the jaw-dropping ending. "You kill art by imposing your moral rules on it!" he rants at his interlocutor Verge (Bruno Ganz), who at this point we still only know by the croak of his voice in the dark.

Despite the fact that the final and inevitable police intervention is drawing ever near (which both provokes and puts pressure on Jack) he is - contrary to all logic - set on taking greater and greater chances. His first victim is Uma Thurman's stranded road traveler (credited as "Lady 1"), an albeit annoying individual who insists that Jack take her to a nearby blacksmiths to weld back together the jack needed to fix her auto. The House That Jack Built is an uncompromising, barbaric, distressing watch, and one very hard to stomach.

The film premiered at Cannes today and apparently theater-goers just weren't having it. Cannes audiences are known for being, let's say passionate, prone to booing and standing ovations, but the social media reports out of The House That Jack Built describe a next-level sea of walkouts.
