    The House That Jack Built

    ★★★★★

    I've a mixed love for the cheery films of Lars. Some like Dogville, I can do without, whereas Breaking the Waves for example, is a nightmarish delight. The House That Jack Built is possibly my favourite of his yet. Sure, he still needs to invest in a damn tripod, but it's a fascinating tale, held together by a career best performance by Dillon. It's by no means for all tastes, but it is further proof that Von Trier is one of the best Directors around these days.

    FAME!!!!

    A couple are haunted by the reappearance of his dead girlfriend every time they have sex. A brilliant concept, marvellously realised in this bloody, icky, pervy little Brit Flick, which I loved.

    My only concern was that it kept appearing to end, and then went on a bit more. However, on reflection, I think it needed that extra breathing space, in order to deliver the full force of the ending.

    One of my favourites of Frightfest 2015.

    Cronenberg's most commercial film is surprisingly one of his most gross - in a good way of course. There are some keys scenes in this movie, which live with you for years and will have turned as many on to the rest of his work as they turned off. For me the vomit drop destroying Flesh and the maggot baby are those key scenes that I still find a little hard to watch!

    Golblum is twitchy and odd. Perfect casting.…
