Lars von Trier's most gruesomely violent film to date, The House that Jack Built lends an insight into the mind of a serial killer. Matt Dillon gives his finest performance yet as Jack.

The highly intelligent Jack becomes a serial killer in the 1970s US. We experience the story from Jack's point of view and are introduced to the five murders that define his development as a serial killer. He views each murder as an artwork in itself, even though his dysfunction gives him problems in the outside world. Despite the fact that the final and inevitable police intervention is drawing ever near, he is set on taking greater and greater chances. Along the way we experience Jack's thoughts through a recurring conversation with an unknown Verge - a grotesque mixture of sophistry mixed with an almost childlike self-pity and explanations of Jack's dangerous and difficult manoeuvres.

"For many years I've made films about good women, now I did a film about an evil man." (Lars von Trier)
