    Children Who Draw

    Growing within each child is the capacity to honestly and keenly perceive their world, as well as the ability to create new things.

The House That Jack Built resembles, at its foundation, various other predation and victimization narratives from throughout von Trier's filmography, stringing together vignette-like “incidents”—five in all—that depict brutal murders committed by Jack (Matt Dillon), an OCD-afflicted psychopath. But imbedded within the recognizable dramaturgy of von Trier's formally accomplished serial-killer film is the frame of an essay—an enthralling discourse…
