Horrified Moviegoers in Cannes Walk out of ‘Vomitive,’ ‘Torturous’ Serial Killer Film

. . .This is a Lars Von Trier movie, and anything goes with this “artist,” who’s put out such wonderful films as “Antichrist” and “Nymphomaniac.”

His new movie “The House That Jack Built,” starring Matt Dillon and Uma Thurman, drew mass walkouts on Monday night when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival . . .

The Danish director said the new movie is his most violent film to date — and he’s proud of that. Movie review site Rotten Tomatoes summed up the plot this way: “Lars von Trier’s upcoming drama follows the highly intelligent Jack (Matt Dillon) over a span of 12 years and introduces the murders that define Jack’s development as a serial killer. We experience the story from Jack’s point of view, while he postulates each murder is an artwork in itself. As the inevitable police intervention is drawing nearer, he is taking greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork.”
