Lars von Trier's - The House That Jack Built (One Night: Unrated Director's Cut)
The House That Jack Built is a 2018 psychological film written and directed by Lars von Trier, starring Matt Dillon in the title role of Jack, and co-stars Bruno Ganz, Uma Thurman, and Riley Keough. The story follows Jack, a serial killer, over the course of 12 years in the 1970s and 1980s in the U.S. state of Washington. Von Trier has described the film as celebrating "the idea that life is evil and soulless." The film debuted at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, marking von Trier's return to the festival after more than six years. It was reported that more than a hundred audience members walked out during the premiere, though a six-minute standing ovation followed the screening. -

What we're about

Let's get together to see films that most people don't want to see because... You have read subtitles or... the actors look like you and me and not the beautiful Hollywood stars. Hartford has at least 7 screens in the area dedicated to alternative cinema (Cinema City at Bow-Tie (4), CineStudio (Trinity College), Aetna Theatre at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art and Real Art Ways). There are also foreign films shown in Bloomfield and at Wesleyan (a great secret movie place). Most of the films that I see at the national (and some from the international) film festivals that I attend show up in Hartford. If you enjoy venturing outside of mainstream film, have (or want to increase) eclectic tastes or are at least curious, this group is for you. My interests lie in Bollywood, small cinema, thrillers, westerns, almost anything that is shown in a movie house. Let's go see more movies.
