    The Legacy That Lars Built

    Jack and Lars are one and the same, both are ambitious neurotics who are searching for perfection and this story is a retrospective of their chosen careers. It's easy to take 'The House That Jack Built' at face value and shrug it off as a self indulgent, narcissistic, masturbatory work from Von Trier... and to a certain extent it is that but it's not without meaning.

    'The Depression Trilogy' was Von Trier at his most…

    'Age 17' must've been a passion project for Kinoshita, at least that's what I'm telling myself. I can't understand why else Kinoshita would only choose to focus on acting when he has such a unique eye for visuals and such a strong voice as a director. It's a shame Kinoshita's directorial credits aren't nearly as dense as his acting credits but I suppose that's part of what makes 'Age 17' so special. Maybe it's a case of style…

    Can't believe the Queen will never get to play GTA6 or Overwatch 2. So sad.
