Dozens of people walked out in disgust when The House That Jack Built premiered at Cannes, and while I can certainly understand their reasons, I was happy to stay all the way until the jaw-dropping ending. Judging by the latest trailer, the project - debuting in the shadow of the Danish director's equally disturbing projects like Melancholia, Antichrist, and both Nymphomaniac films - looks to uphold his reputation as one of the most notorious storytellers working today. "It's disgusting", one woman said on her way out. Another tweeted that the movie was "vile" and "should not have been made".

I glanced at my watch once or twice myself, but most of the time I was challenged, appalled and amused by von Trier's mischievous deconstruction of the serial-killer genre, as well as being impressed by his uncompromising bravado and technical brilliance: the film finishes with some magnificent supernatural imagery which would be the highpoint of any Hollywood fantasy blockbuster.

Likewise, other critics went onto note that the film - which graphically portrays the mutilation of women and children - felt "like a suicide note,", along with being deemed by The Guardian as "pretentious" and "pathetic". Set in Washington in the 70s and 80s, it follows 12 years in the life of a "highly intelligent" serial killer.
