Hej allesammans,

The Cologne Filmfestival is back and of course we'll go watch the famous Danish Lars von Trier's movie "The House That Jack Built". Get ready for this creepy serial killer story.

From the Filmfestival website:

When Lars von Trier does a serial killer movie, you can be sure that the outcome will be far more than just a simple thriller or horror movie. For the Danish master this story about Jack and his five horrifying murders are just the framework for a cinematic essay about the relationship between art and violence, about the perversion of perfectionism and ultimately about the hubris of being a director in the first place – since Jack is doubtlessly an alter ego of von Trier himself. With the darkest of humors and deeply disturbing self-doubt he indirectly confronts all the criticism that is regularly leveled against him – ranging from narcissism to misogyny. A work as disturbing as it is intellectually brilliant.
