Lars von Trier’s ‘The House That Jack Built’ Triggers Walkouts at Cannes

Controversial Danish director Lars von Trier’s new film, “The House That Jack Built,” spurred walkouts at the Cannes Film Festival on Monday. According to Variety, one frustrated attendee called the film “disgusting,” and more than 100 people walked out during its premiere. The graphic film is about a serial killer who targets women and children for death. Von Trier received a standing ovation after the movie ended, but the balcony level was half empty, Variety reported.
