The House that Jack Built Rated 18

The House that Jack Built

Dir. Lars von Trier. Denmark, 2018. 2h 33m. Starring Matt Dillon, Bruno Ganz, Uma Thurman, Riley Keough, Siobhan Fallon Hogan, Sofie Gråbøl.

In a mesmerising career best, Matt Dillon plays a failed architect turned murderer who leads us through the thought processes behind his increasingly more depraved acts of violence. Lars von Trier’s boundary-pushing serial killer epic is equal parts graphic horror and intellectual discussion on the nature of art.

‘A movie we shall never forget. For its honesty, agony and unfearing impudence, its calm, rage and vertiginous invention.’ ★★★★★ Nigel Andrew, The FT
