Lars von Trier's 'disgusting' new film sparks mass walkouts at Cannes

At last night's Cannes premiere of his new film, The House That Jack Built, audiences were so offended by the excessive violence they reportedly walked out of the screening in droves, leaving behind a wake of angry tweets.

Despite the criticism, Lars Von Trier has defended his film against any kind of "censorship" urging people to go and see it as it is.

Some people, however, reacted more calmly, discussing the merits and flaws of Von Trier's works, commenting on his trademark provocative style.

Nonetheless, Jack tries to assert his intellectual credentials by delivering digressive lectures on German dive-bomber design, the role of putrefaction in the production of dessert wine, and the purposes of atrocity in art - a theme illustrated by clips from von Trier's own films.

As the killer Jack horribly mutilates one girlfriend, he says: "Why is it always the man's fault".

"The House that Jack Built" stars Matt Dillon as Jack and follows his life over 12 years as he develops into a highly intelligent serial killer. And after reading these reactions, quite honestly, I've never been more determined to see a movie in my entire life. The House That Jack Built is a dark and sinister story, presented through a philosophical and occasional humorous tale.

The movie features actors Matt Dillon, Bruno Ganz, Uma Thurman, Siobhan Fallon Hogan, Riley Keough, and Jeremy Davies. Jack is telling Verge about five "incidents" he's picked from his murdering career, which seems to run through the 1970s in an unspecified USA town.

Not everyone seems to have been appalled by The House That Jack Built, however. He views each murder as an artwork in itself, even though his dysfunction gives him problems in the outside world.

Nevertheless Lars still has his fans, with a six-minute standing ovation taking place during the end credits. Let us know what you think.
