The House That Jack Built (Special Preview Screening)

The House That Jack Built Screening Miranda London

Deeper Into Movies ends the year with what they're calling 'their surprise alternative Christmas film'.

ENGINEER. ARTIST. SERIAL KILLER.

Lars von Trier’s latest film explores the life and deaths of Jack (Matt Dillon), an OCD-afflicted serial killer with high artistic ambitions for his murders. As his kills grow ever more ambitious, he becomes more and more obsessed with his art – but at what point will his “career” catch up with him?

Director and provocateur Lars von Trier (BREAKING THE WAVES, DOGVILLE, ANTICHRIST) returns with yet another film guaranteed to startle and confront. Functioning as a sort of confessional for von Trier, THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT digs deep into the connections between art and destruction – and asks whether great art is worth it. Anchored by a captivating performance by Matt Dillon, it’s an idiosyncratic and challenging manifesto from a filmmaker known for being challenging.

Coming to cinemas after inspiring both praise and indignation at the Cannes Film Festival, it’s a film you’re unlikely to forget.

Presented by Deeper Into Movies.
