“The House That Jack Built” is a long-awaited work by Lars von Trier, the director of “Nymphomaniac”, “Antichrist” and “Melancholy”, filled with black humour. Starring Matt Dillon, Uma Thurman, Riley Keough and Bruno Ganz.

The main character, Jack is a new character in the pop culture clan of psychopaths, next to Jack the Ripper, Dexter and Hannibal Lecter. The master of world cinema pictures a dozen years in the life of a serial killer, a hellishly intelligent perfectionist, full of contradictions, weaknesses and petty obsessions. Jack is an aesthete, an admirer of painting, architecture, poetry and trips to the great outdoors. The killer looks at his crimes as if they were dark works of art. What shape will he give to his perfect crime?

Trier has made many films about good women (“Breaking the Waves”, “Dancing in the Darkness”). This time he decided to tell about the bad man, using motifs from Francis Bacon’s paintings, William Blake’s poetry and the music of the outstanding pianist Glenn Gould. Through the figure of a dark aesthete, Lars von Trier ridicules social hypocrisy and exposes the mechanisms of political correctness. “The House That Jack Built” is a provocative, bold cinema full of visual ideas, one that searches for an answer to the question about the nature of good and evil.
