His latest tongue-in-cheek nightmare The House That Jack Built is two and a half hours long but seems much longer longer than Bayreuth, more vainglorious than Bayreuth. It is an ordeal of gruesomeness and tiresomeness that was all bit as infuriating as I had feared. But it concludes when what I as well as have to espouse is a spectacular horror finale that detonated an almighty pat here in Cannes. The film ends bearing in mind a immense but semi-immense bang, an extravagant visual be copious and a cheeky musical outro higher than the closing credits to leave you laughing in animosity of yourself as the dwelling lights come up. But there is illogicality and smirkiness where Von Trier believes the savory black comedy to be.
As ever, this is a pseudo-American Psycho, set in an America that looks heartsinkingly bearing in mind the forests of Denmark or perhaps Germany, locations in which the feel of American automobiles and American actors see a propos surreally out of place. There is supposedly a place called Carlsons Supermarket unventilated one of these totally distant chalets, and although we dont see this growth, we see its brown bag gone its logo. I dont think I have ever seen a more obviously faked artefact in a film in my cartoon.
