Lars Von Trier Refuses To Seek Psychiatric Help; Instead He Made ‘The House That Jack Built’
Lars von Trier just premiered a film at the Cannes Film Festival, and to say it’ll be controversial could be an understatement. He was already banned from the festival, which lasted seven years, after making Hitler jokes in 2011. His new movie, THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT led to walkouts and groans during the film’s more brutal scenes. The movie also received a six-minute standing ovation, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT follows Jack, a serial killer, over the course of 12 years while depicting the murders that lead to his development as a serial killer. You can check out the trailer below.
The movie stars Matt Dillon, Uma Thurman, and Bruno Ganz. It will get a U.S. release through IFC Films.
