From Scream Factory:
Matt Dillon gives a chilling and multi-layered performance as a serial killer in Lars von Trier’s THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT–Coming to Blu-ray and DVD in the U.S. on February 4th.
In five audacious episodes, failed architect and arch-sociopath Jack (Dillon) recounts the elaborately orchestrated murders — each, as he views them, as a towering work of art — that define his “career” as a serial killer. Mixing pitch-black humor, transcendent surrealism, and renegade musings on everything from history to architecture to cinema itself, von Trier fashions a radical, blazingly personal inquiry into violence, art, and the twin acts of creation and destruction. From IFC Films. Uma Thurman, Riley Keough, and Bruno Ganz co-star.
