Chloë Grace Moretz,
USA in the 1970s. We follow the highly intelligent Jack over a span of 12 years and are introduced to the murders that define Jack's development as a serial killer. We experience the story from Jack's point of view, while he postulates each murder is an artwork in itself. As the inevitable police intervention is drawing nearer, he is taking greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork. Along the way we experience Jack's descriptions of his personal condition, problems and thoughts through a recurring conversation with the unknown Verge - a grotesque mixture of sophistry mixed with an almost childlike self-pity and psychopathic explanations. The House That Jack Built is a dark and sinister story, yet presented through a philosophical and occasional humorous tale.Written by
Jack is an engineer who sees himself as an architect. He commits a series of murders in the Pacific Northwest. Matt Dillon also played a character in There's Something About Mary (1998) who was pretending to be an architect and was accused of being a serial murderer who operated in the states of Utah and Washington (Pacific Northwest). In both films there is a theme regarding the decomposition of bodies. See more »

Why do you always have to be so cruel? I'm not completely stupid.
That fucking depends on your definition of "completely."

I always am a little skeptical when it comes to Mr Trier, as I have both hated and loved his films in the past. But this time I found myself enjoying this film more than enough. I think that Matt Dillon executes perfectly his role a serial killer with OCD, who likes to rationalize and over-explaining things. In my opinion this a great and funny film which, I'm afraid, many won't agree with me. Go watch it for yourselves to have your won opinion!!
