One-Night-Only Screenings of Lars von Trier’s ‘The House That Jack Built’ Director’s Cut Announced

Written by on October 31, 2018 


As expected when it comes to a serial killer movie from Lars von Trier, The House That Jack Built divided Cannes audiences, though we were firmly on the positive side. “Whether there’s any worth to be found in The House That Jack Built will depend on the viewer’s interest in delving deep into von Trier’s tortured psyche,” said Giovanni Marchini Camia in his review. “It’s unlikely anyone will empathize with him and it’s certain many will find the film execrable, but those willing to indulge his excess are offered a wealth of fascinating material. As far as artistic self-portraits and disquisitions on the creative process go, this one’s nothing if not unorthodox.”

Now, the question has been when those in the United States can see it, and thankfully IFC Films have delivered a welcome Halloween day surprise. The House That Jack Built will have one-night-only screenings of the director’s cut on November 28 across theaters nationwide (full list here). This will be followed by the R-rated theatrical version opening in theaters on December 14 and the director’s cut on VOD only. Tickets for the special screenings are now on sale, so prepare to get bloody.

One can see a new teaser and trailer below for the film starring Matt Dillon, Uma Thurman, Riley Keough, and Bruno Ganz.

Boundary-pushing cinematic visionary Lars von Trier (Antichrist) returns with one of his most daring, masterfully provocative works yet. In five audacious episodes, failed architect and arch-sociopath Jack (Matt Dillon) recounts the elaborately orchestrated murders—each, as he views them, a towering work of art—that define his “career” as a serial killer. Mixing pitch black humor, transcendent surrealism, and renegade musings on everything from history to architecture to cinema, von Trier fashions a radical, blazingly personal inquiry into violence, art, and the twin acts of creation and destruction. With Uma Thurman, Riley Keough, and Bruno Ganz.
