DENMARK , France , Sweden , Germany | 155 minutes | 2018

True to form, the legendary Danish director shocks and provokes in his portrait of Jack, a ruthless serial killer and intellectually-minded architect who ponders his “body of work” with a mysterious psychoanalyst named Verge. In this nightmarish tale divided into five chapters, Von Trier spares no one. Beyond the body count and the sadism of the protagonist – played by a never-more-terrifying Matt Dillon – the film is a scathing indictment of the role of the artist. This violent yet poetic descent into hell, unleavened by twisted humour, is guaranteed to provoke strong reactions.
