One thing that people often wait to watch at the Cannes Film Festival is the work of Danish director Lars Von Trier. The filmmaker is known for his raw and bold treatment of the subject and the impactful visual portrayal, which is often burned into the brain of the viewer for a very long time. But his recent work may have gone just one step too far.

Trier is known for picking up controversial topics and a lot of his content revolves around sex, brutality, violence, hypnosis to name some.

While the subjects do sound interesting, watching his films need an iron heart, nerves of steel and copious amounts of courage!

Von Tier movies are everything that defines gruesome. His work has the ability to take one to a truly dark state of mind, that can take a while to come out of. Over the years, he has freaked audiences across the globe with his films and that’s exactly what he did at the Cannes Film Festival 2018 again.

His latest film ‘The House That Jack Built’ is dark, twisted and will definitely scare the hell out of you. Saying that it will give you goosebumps would be an understatement because hundreds of people literally rushed out of the screening in Cannes to throw up, as they were unable to digest the amount of destruction the makers showed on-screen.

This dark comedy revolves around a serial killer who comes up with different and innovative ways to hack his victims who are women and children.

It goes without saying that the subject does pique our interest, no matter how twisted it sounds. Matt Dillon, Bruno Ganz, and Uma Thurman’s performances, in particular, will impress you.

It’s after a gap of six years that we are seeing Trier come back with a film that is filled with explicit scenes. While his movie is being raved about, with many people calling it his best work to date, there are many who are voicing out against the film. Some have even termed his movie as a ‘suicide note’. 

I’ve never seen anything like this at a film festival. 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. “It’s disgusting,” one woman said on her way out. #Cannes2018

Also, this isn’t the first time Von Trier has come up with disturbing content like this. His films ‘Antichrist’ and ‘Nymphomaniac’ follow the same pattern.

THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT: I decided I’d had enough after about 100 minutes, which is when I left. I’m a critic but I’m also a human being, and I don’t have to play a part in somebody’s elaborate system of torture. #Cannes2018
