1970s USA. We follow the highly intelligent Jack through 5 incidents 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. He views each murder as an artwork in itself, even though his dysfunction gives him problems in the outside world. Despite the fact that the final and inevitable police intervention is drawing ever near (which both provokes and puts pressure on Jack) he is – contrary to all logic – set on taking greater and greater chances. 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 in-depth explanations of, for Jack, dangerous and difficult maneuvers. The film had its world premiere at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.

“Not just a deliciously gory film, it may also be Lars von Trier's funniest film to date.” - Rafael Motamayor, Bloody Disgusting

“Depraved, troubling but always compelling with a career best performance by star Matt Dillon.” - Chris Bumbray, JoBlo's Movie Emporium

“I laughed out loud at regular intervals...it was fascinating on screen.” - Lisa Nesselson, France24

“There's no question he (Matt Dillon) delivers an impactful movie monster, with darting eyes and a toothy smile that makes Jack at once seem empathetic and bonkers.” - Eric Kohn, indieWire
