I've pretty much hated every Von Trier movie I've seen but I've been excited for this. Stopped watching the trailer about half way in though, it seems to show a loootttt.
I loved his Depression Trilogy.
This is a good sign.
‘The House That Jack Built’ First Reactions: ‘Lars Has Gone Too Far This Time’ As 100 People Walk Out — Cannes
Which of his films have you seen?
Antichrist, melancholia and Nymphomaniac
Yeah, you need to watch earlier ones. Dogville is the best. And you can't hate Dancer in the Dark.
Bjork probably can
Lars Von Trier making a movie that depicts violence against women, hmm who would've thought
That just makes me want to see it more.
I knew there would be controversy and overblown "so violent i wanna puke" kind of responses, but have there actually been any good reviews yet?
This is the closest I've seen to some sort of review.
Also, apparently there was still a long standing ovation after the movie ended. Seeing as it's a film festival though, idk how much walkouts and standing ovations really mean.
There’s always been something like that at Cannes every year.
The trailer has the best use of David Bowie’s “fame” ever. Hilarious.
Lol damn, looks fucked. I legit don’t think I could handle it. I’m bad with torture/gore.
People walk out on/boo/etc like 75% of Cannes movies. They love putting on a show.
This is so fucked up and also a masterpiece. The epilogue is probably the best thing von Trier has done.
Does it feel torture porny? I want to see this so bad but man, I have a hard time with torture scenes.
Not at all, imo. The whole film is basically reckoning with the violence on screen the entire time. It’s definitely graphic though.
This is a really good piece that sort of goes into it a briefly. Is Lars Von Trier’s new movie The House That Jack Built too controversial for Canada?
That article makes me wanna see this ten times more.
Between Roma, Vox Lux, The Favourite going wider today and this film leaking, it should be a good weekend.
Man this thing is divisive. Excited to check it out.
Very excited to give it a look. It’s up there as one of Von Trier’s top 2-3 films. There’s such a finality to this work that I don’t know how/if he would ever follow it up.
