The House That Jack Built follows the serial killer over the course of 12 years in the 1970s and 1980s during a murder spree in the state of Washington.
The film marked the return for director Lars von Trier at the Cannes Film Festival, where the movie debuted in May, where it was criticised for being ‘vomitive’ and ‘pathetic’.
Over 100 people were reported to have walked out of the film’s screening at the French festival, as they were ‘disgusted’ by the many extremely violent scenes where victims including children were graphically murdered on screen.
At the time, several film critics tweeted their disgust with the movie as they joined the many others who left the screening before it was over.
‘Walked out on LarsvonTrier. Vile movie. Should not have been made. Actors culpable,’ Showbiz 411’s Roger Friedman wrote.
Al Jazeera reporter Charlie Angela said she left midway through ‘because seeing children being shot and killed is not art or entertainment’.
Here’s the best part…
In February, Von Trier explained the film was inspired by Donald Trump’s presidency: ‘The House That Jack Built celebrates the idea that life is evil and soulless, which is sadly proven by the recent rise of the Homo trumpus – the rat king.’
So the film maker makes an utterly unwatchable, violent film because… Trump. Such is the state of insanity on the Left right now.
