Straight out of Cannes comes a trio of clips from Lars von Trier‘s hotly anticipated The House That Jack Built, which became the festival’s most controversial film after hundreds of people walked out of the World Premiere.
It’s clear from the get-go that Matt Dillon is a serial killer, thus von Trier uses that to create suspense for the viewer. Similarly to Christian Bale‘s performance as Patrick Bateman in American Psycho, Dillon converses with his victims as he leads up to presumably murdering them. The first has Uma Thurman joking about how she’d kill herself, while another has Dillon taunting his victim who screams for help.
The wait for this is going to be brutal. Thankfully, we can revisit American Psycho to hold us over.
