    It's almost as if a lot of goodwill that we had towards him and his art
    has been kind of destroyed by the revelations of his misdeeds towards Bjork and others.

    You dont think Von Trier knew about the bs going down in his own production company?

    And the stuff with Bjork was bad enough -_-

    it has potential to be very ..."oh I've this film before but less gratuitous"
    I only hope it's well done

    Lol what's with the long hair and beard, Lars? Trying to imitate Michael Haneke? :D

    That pretty much sums it up for me. It's not released until November! :(

    I will not deny this, I thought it was great (aside from some eye-roll inducing ARE YOU GETTING THE METAPHOR monologing) -- especially the ending. That said, I got no issue clowning on Von Trier with a better picture of who he is now, in a vastly less empathetic light.

    This is not a review. I left The House That Jack Built after 100 minutes, at a moment when the central character began to cut off the tits of a woman he called ‘Simple’, having previously drawn incision lines around her breasts with a marker he made her get for him and then psychologically tortured her. The moment I left was when I turned my face away from the sight of the breast being cut off, but could still hear the amped-up sound of a blade sawing into flesh and the screams of a woman - and, in turning away, met the eyes of the woman sitting next to me, who was also averting her eyes from the violence onscreen; and, having cowered with her for two seconds, I decided to leave before I was put through more funny games.

    k. Fair enough.

    In Jackie Brown, there’s a scene where Robert De Niro’s character shoots Bridget Fonda’s character dead because he is so frustrated with her and wants to shut her up. I think of this scene when I see films sometimes, because I aim to consider the artistic merit of films, and I believe it is artistically less good to kill your character than to let her speak.

    wut?
    Wait.
    Who is this muppet?
