    "What's the name of your cat?"

    "What's your favourite colour?"

    "Blow me!"

    This was just Cage practising for Mandy.

    The House That Jack Built

    ★★

    Well, was this supposed to be funny? It wasn't.

    Was it provocative? Yes, but not in the way you'd like. Very self-referential and von Trier reflecting on himself and his oeuvre. Partly it is just von Trier masturbating, if you ask me.

    As Verge says to Jack during the final scene: "I wouldn't recommend it but the choice is entirely yours"

    Claire Denis has the perfect eye for capturing human beauty. The most powerful statements are without speaking.

    ★★★

    The Annihilation gene pool:

    25% Stalker
    25% Predator
    15% Prometheus/Alien: Covenant
    15% Avatar
    10% Random zombiefilm
    5% 2001
    5% Dog Soldiers (gore)

    I generally like ambiguity and endings that ask you to rethink or puzzle. Unfortunately this one doesn't really make me want to wonder or care that much. Looks just as gorgeous as it feels unbalanced.
