Lars Von Trier film prompts mass walkouts at Cannes

Look unpleasant? Sure. But I wouldn't want him to suddenly go chaste on us, and the career high of Nymphomaniac is a good place from which to start a new provocation. Even with tickets including a "scènes violentes" ("explicit violence") warning, "hundreds" allegedly walked out of the theater.

Variety claimed that one woman who left the theatre mid-way through muttered "it's disgusting" while the balcony was mostly half-empty by the time the film had ended. You can check out a few Twitter reactions below.

The Cannes crowd at the gala who remained, however, gave the film a rousing standing ovation.

★★★★☆ In 2011 Lars von Trier was declared persona non grata at Cannes after saying that he "sympathised" with Hitler. Vile movie. Should not have been made. Gross. Pretentious. Vomitive. Torturous.

While one audience member added: "I've just walked out of Lars von Trier's premiere at Cannes 2018 because seeing children being shot and killed is not art or entertainment". The feature is set during the 1970s and follows the killer through the process of conducting five murders that shape his "coming of age" experience.

Matt Dillon in The House That Jack Built.

Although Matt turned up in Cannes to promote the film, its other stars Riley and Uma skipped the world premiere. Von Trier told The Guardian "The House That Jack Built celebrates the idea that life is evil and soulless", so yeah, it's probably not going to be super fun to watch. Jack is telling Verge about five "incidents" he's picked from his murdering career, which seems to run through the 1970s in an unspecified U.S. town.

Not everyone seems to have been appalled by The House That Jack Built, however. Along the way we experience Jack's descriptions of his personal condition, problems and thoughts through a recurring conversation with the unknown Verge - a grotesque mixture of sophistry mixed with an nearly childlike self-pity and in-depth explanations of, for Jack, risky and hard maneuvers.
