Lars Von Trier'sCannes Film Festival comeback was marred by controversy after a screening of his new movie reportedly prompted a mass exit of 100 audience members. The film stars Matt Dillon as Jack, a serial killer who carries out bad crimes throughout the 1970s and '80s.
The blackly comic thriller, which stars Matt Dillon and Uma Thurman, follows the murder spree of a serial killer over the course of several decades.
During a break in the film'sproduction a year ago, the director - along with cast members Matt Dillon and Uma Thurman [VIDEO] - attended a press conference with ScreenDaily.com regarding the details of the project. That decision was greeted negatively in some quarters, with critics pointing to allegations made by the musician Björk, who said that Von Trier had sexually harassed her on the set of his filmDancer in the Dark.
This is a view that's summed up by Jack in the trailer: "Some people claim that the atrocities we commit in our fiction are those inner desires we can not commit in out controlled civilisation, so they are expressed instead through our art". And it sounds like he's back to his best - or worst depending on your point of view - with the serial killer tale The House That Jack Built. According to reports, hundreds of viewers left the screening and called it "vomitive" and "vile", to name just a few of the most moderate comments.
Despite the criticism, Lars Von Trier has defended his film against any kind of "censorship" urging people to go and see it as it is. In the end, it looks like The House That Jack Built might end up being shocking for the sake of being shocking and little else.
IFC Films is releasing The House That Jack Built for the USA, but no release date has been announced at this time. He views each murder as an artwork in itself, even though his dysfunction gives him problems in the outside world.
