The House That Jack Built (2018)

[IMDB; en.wikipedia]


Entertaining for those who understand it, but probably boring for those who don't.
Crazy.
Mind blowing.

Sadistic.
Unnecessary explicit European style violence as opposed to Hollywood's.

Horror & Comedy simultaneously.

Nota bene: the movie might make many viewers feel uncomfortable. This movie clearly is for open minded, mentally sane people. Probably not recommended to average viewers.

Coherent and Consistent storyline.
Lots of old school difficult to swallow European philosophy.
There are some funny moments from time to time.

Lasts for 2.5 hours - feels shorter if you understand it, but also an eternity if you don't :)

Average special effects, but they do get the job done perfectly.

Matt Dillon is great.

The closest thing I can think of would be Nocturnal Animals starring Jake Gyllenhaal.

Definitely to watch at the cinema.


Conclusions


Worth watching to me, but probably a bad experience to most average viewers. It's the kind of movie that you either understand (and therefore can enjoy) or dislike, there's no other option.
