The House That Jack Built Instrueret af Lars von Trier
The scene of elaborate destruction we build to is entirely predictable if you know anything whatsoever about the architect-turned-serial-killer narrative or the filmmaker. Because it is the centerpiece of the film, its soul, it satisfies when it emerges, but we glimpse it only for a second, as if von Trier himself were bored by the only moment of ingenuity he’s conjured in nearly a decade.

Danish prankster Lars Von Trier’s day has come. His career-long attempt at dismantling film art finally matches the cultural moment in The House That Jack Built. Von Trier taints a foundational nursery rhyme — debasing its formerly innocent traditions — which leads to his most potent spiritual commentary.

Has there ever been a flimsier approximation of all that necessary “filler” than in The House That Jack Built? Nothing has any illusionistic weight in this film.
