The House That Jack Built {2018} ~ Lars von Trier

The story follows Jack, a highly intelligent serial killer over the course of 12 years and depicts the murders that truly develop Jack as a serial killer.

The stuffy suit crowd have been walking out of the Cannes screening, calling it "vile: "tortuous" and "vomitive'

why cant Lars von Trier just make a normal fcking movie for once. pushing limits is one thing but hes just a complete sadist expressing his narcissism and contempt for the world through his art.

Talked to someone who walked out of the Lars von Trier film at Cannes: "He mutilates Riley Keough, he mutilates children... and we are all there in formal dress expected to watch it?"

February 2017, von Trier said that The House That Jack Built "celebrates the idea that the life is evil and soulless, which is sadly proven by the recent rise of the Homo trumpus the rat king".[15] The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.
In bold type -- What does this mean, do you think? Is it a misquote, or second language issue? "that the life is"

Que LA vie est... So, yes, probably the latter.

And so in other words he would be saying the film, "celebrates the idea that life is evil and soulless"? I really can't say I even know what that even means: "life is evil". Any takers?

I guess there really isn't enough context in the wiki page cut, of which I posted that whole section about this film.

The House That Jack Built - 3/5

Not the home run I thought it would be. It's too slow for starters, and while Matt Dillion gives a good performance, his Jack isn't a very interesting character. This is Von Triers version of American Psycho, complete with black comedy but boredom does creep in, and the more obscure elements won't go over with mainstream audiences. There's cringy violence, but nothing on the level that the Cannes pearl clutchers claimed to be, and a sequence involving a couple of kids and a rifle will surely make jaws drop. Long movies can still be engaging as Suspiria proves, but Von Trier stumbles and it becomes more of a house of cards.
