Having been banned from Cannes in 2011, Lars von Trier returned to the festival this spring with a film that further cemented his role as the enfant terrible of European cinema. The ultraviolent and uncompromising serial killer portrait THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT caused audiences to storm out of the cinemas and critics to accuse the director of everything from sadism to artistic bankruptcy. Featuring a diabolical Matt Dillon in the lead role and supporting turns from Bruno Ganz, Uma Thurman and Riley Keough, this is an experience you won’t soon forget.
