Lars von Trier at his most sadistic + Dennis Hopper + Free Solo + An elephant that sits for four hours + much more!

Watch Lars Von Trier's THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT on an empty stomach. This is a film that has immediately entered the pantheon of the most gruelling movies ever made. The controversial Danish filmmaker wilfully challenges his audiences for 150 minutes, testing how far they can take his sadism. This is the second most disturbing film I have seen in my life, second only to Pasolini’s Salo or 120 Days of Sodom (1975). The difference is that it lacks the unequivocal political connotations of the Italian film. As a result, the maelstrom of violence feels mostly gratuitous. Read our editor's review of the most eagerly awaited film of the weekend.

Other dirty launches this weekend include the four-hour extremely bleak and yet powerful Chinese drama AN ELEPHANT SITTING STILL, a 4k restoration of Dennis Hopper's "lost" masterpiece THE LAST MOVIE and a doc about the extreme climber Alex Honnold FREE SOLO.

Also, don't forget to check our dirty picks from the previous weeks as well as the latest VoD and DVD releases!
