The House That Jack Built
20:00 – 2019-01-20 – Cinema – 12 / 15 zł
Boundary-pushing cinematic visionary Lars von Trier (Antichrist) returns with one of his most daring, masterfully provocative works yet. In five audacious episodes, failed architect and arch-sociopath Jack (Matt Dillon) recounts the elaborately orchestrated murders-each, as he views them, a towering work of art-that define his “career” as a serial killer.
Mixing pitch black humor, transcendent surrealism, and renegade musings on everything from history to architecture to cinema, von Trier fashions a radical, blazingly personal inquiry into violence, art, and the twin acts of creation and destruction. With Uma Thurman, Riley Keough, and Bruno Ganz.
Trier made many films about good women (“Breaking the waves”, “Dancing in the dark”). This time he decided to talk about the bad man, reaching for the motifs of Francis Bacon’s paintings, William Blake’s poetry and the music of the outstanding pianist Glenn Gould. Through the form of the dark aesthetist, Lars von Trier mocks social hypocrisy and exposes the mechanisms of political correctness. “The house that Jack built” is a provocative, bold, full of visual ideas cinema seeking answers to the question about the nature of good and evil.
