'It's disgusting': Movie violence prompts mass walkout at Cannes

The House That Jack Built Trailer Lars Von Trier

Controversial director Lars von Trier kicked up a storm of anger at the Cannes film festival Tuesday with a brutal serial killer film which many saw as giving the finger to the #MeToo movement. Needless to say, the film industry was somewhat put on edge by the promise of a new violent feature.

"He mutilates Riley Keough, he mutilates children. and we are all there in formal dress expected to watch it?" another viewer told Vulture's Kyle Buchanan.

So, Lars Von Trier returns to Cannes seven years after his ban from the festival. In a report detailing the premiere by IndieWire.com, a member of Variety's press team who attended the screening also described watching the film as "one of the most unpleasant movie-going experiences of his life". His first victim is Uma Thurman's stranded road traveler (credited as "Lady 1"), an albeit annoying individual who insists that Jack take her to a nearby blacksmiths to weld back together the jack needed to fix her auto. Vile movie. Should not have been made.

Leave it to Danish provocateur Lars von Trier to offend a festival audience.

"The movie is overwhelming", she said.

Last year, it was revealed that von Trier was working on the project and he cited Donald Trump as an inspiration.

The House That Jack Built is due for release in Denmark on 29 November, and given the reactions and subject matter it'll be interesting to see when, or even if, it gets picked up for distribution across the world.

We learn very early on that Jack has committed at least 60 murders. As the inevitable police intervention is drawing nearer, he is taking greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork.

The Hollywood Reporter called the film "an autoerotic ego massage. often as inane as it is unsettling". Let us know what you think.

But the director denied the film was macho push-back after the #MeToo revolution, which he said was convicting people without a judge.
