'Vomitive. Pathetic': Lars Von Trier film prompts mass walkouts at Cannes

'The House That Jack Built' Trailer Reveals Lars Von Trier's Controversial Serial Killer Movie

"More than 100 people have walked out of Lars von Trier's The House That Jack Built, which depicts the mutilation of women and children". Watch the new House That Jack Built trailer below.

And Lars von Trier's new movie, The House That Jack Built, found audience members walking out part way through viewing. Advance word on the film suggested that it would feature scenes of sadistic violence and brutality, with Cannes director Thierry Fremaux saying that it featured "a subject so controversial" that it could only appear in an out-of-competition slot at the festival.

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".

The movie's first trailer was released back in April.

Fresh US sanctions on Iran unlikely to affect India
Iran had later stated that JCPOA will continue to exist between itself and five other nations-Russia, China, Japan, France and UK. Outside OPEC, soaring United States crude oil production C-OUT-T-EIA ould help to fill Iran's supply gap.

I feel a bit ambivalent about this film. How von Trier's perceived in reality is at the very heart of von Trier's fiction, and thus the prospect of his serial-killer movie was more or less written in stone from the moment it was announced. Controversy is Von Trier's stock and trade, so it should come as no surprise that his latest movie could be his most graphic and shocking to date.

Not everyone seems to have been appalled by The House That Jack Built, however. The House That Jack Built premieres at Cannes today (May 14), so we'll likely hear how the film is sooner rather than later.

The House That Jack Built does not yet have a United Kingdom release date. We follow the highly intelligent Jack over a span of 12 years and are introduced to the murders that define Jack's development as a serial killer. The story that will unfold in the 70-80-ies of XX century, tells about a maniac named Jack. He views each murder as an artwork in itself, even though his dysfunction gives him problems in the outside world. As the inevitable police intervention is drawing nearer, he is taking greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork.
