The newest film from Lars von Trier follows the exploits of Jack (Matt Dillon), a highly intelligent killer, over the course of twelve years, introducing the audience to the murders that define his development as a serial killer. Throughout the various incidents of the film, Jack postulates that murder is a form of art in itself. As the police investigation draws nearer, Jack takes larger and larger risks in his attempt to create the ultimate piece of art. The House That Jack Built is both a dark and sinister story, presented in a philosophical and occasionally darkly humorous way.
“AN ABRASIVE MASTERPIECE, AND QUITE POSSIBLY THE DIRECTOR’S BEST FILM.”
-Johnny Donaldson, Daily Grindhouse
“DILLON...DELIVERS AN IMPACTFUL MOVIE MONSTER, WITH DARTING EYES AND A TOOTHY SMILE THAT MAKES JACK AT ONCE SEEM EMPATHETIC AND BONKERS.”
-Erik Kohn, Indiewire
