The House That Jack Built

The old cathedrals often have sublime artworks hidden away in the darkest corners for only god to see. The same goes for murder.

Ottawa Premiere the Week of December 14th!


The story follows Jack, a highly intelligent serial killer, over the course of twelve years, and depicts the murders that really develop his inner madman.
From Oscar and Golden Globe nominee, and 6x Cannes award winner, and 8x more Cannes nominated director Lars Von Trier!

Hamburg Film Festival: Best Feature nominee!

Grade A! “Matt Dillon is stunning in this Dantesque meditation on art, life, and carnal desires” (Consequence of Sound)

4/4 Stars! “embedded within the recognizable dramaturgy of von Trier’s formally accomplished serial-killer film is the frame of an essay—an enthralling discourse on art and violence conducted through dialectical narrators and dizzying montages that smash together” (Slant)

In five episodes, failed architect and vicious sociopath Jack recounts his elaborately orchestrated murders -- each, as he views them, a towering work of art that defines his life's work as a serial killer in the Pacific Northwest.
