Critic Reviews for The House That Jack Built
Von Trier... simply dallies with disgusting images and ideas in a carefully calibrated, ante-upping ploy to attract attention...
It fails to make depravity an experience that either stimulates or appalls. If I wanted to leave von Trier's movie, it wasn't because I was nauseous.
One of the most thoughtful, honest onscreen meditations on morality and personal culpability in quite some time.
If von Trier is instead merely content telling a sick joke - and the soundtrack, including the repeated use of David Bowie's Fame, suggests as much - it leads to a punchline we've all heard before.
Audience Reviews for The House That Jack Built
Lars von Trier reaches the very apex of his career with this iconic (yes, that's the word), hysterically provocative and bafflingly rich piece of self-reflection that drags us to the bottom of (his) hell and tears not only into himself as an artist/person but also the world we live in.
