Not to be confused with this film, when I searched it on Vudu:

Just saw it on PPV. But Iím holding out my rating til I get to see the directorís cut. The full impact was obviously lost here.

Just got out watching the DC in a theater. Man, this movie is fucked. The ending went way over my head. I'm gonna have to read some reviews to make sense of everything. Even still, it'll probably make my Top 10 just because of the sheer experience of it. I'm not much of a LVT fan, so this may not be high praise, but I think it's his best film.

I guess the unrated cut is delayed or not coming out due to the MPAA issue?

I just noticed that the US distributor is IFC, hopefully Criterion will get this.

Unrated cut is now on Vudu and such so you can all see the extra 30 seconds of gore or whatever.

The difference in run time is not 30 seconds, itís actually about five minutes.

No. It absolutely is not.

Vudu:
R-cut - 151 min
D-cut - 152 min

Amazon:
R-cut R-cut
- 150 min
D-cut D-cut
- 152 min

Each site seems to be doing the rounding a little bit differently, and I haven't rented/purchased either cut on each platform, so I can't see the exact run time down to the second. Whichever sites reported the "155 minute" version were wrong, since none of these are that length. I think that error came about because they included the von Trier & cast intro (which preceded the D-cut in cinemas, as that's what I saw), which was about 2 or 3 minutes.

Just finished it. As usual, Lars delivers. Definitely top 10 of 2018.

4.5/5

Another Lame movie from Lars. This dude seriously needs to cut down on the run time of his films.

Matt Dillon was great, super convincing and creepy. If this was tighter and didn't have so much pointless shit in it (yes, take that symbolism you claim to understand and shove it up your ass, even the shit that makes sense is this movie is so painfully drawn out), it would have been a lot better.

Too bad he went full retard at the end as well.

This is airing on the Showtime networks.

This was one [email protected] up movie

This was probably the best work Dillon has ever done in his career.


I did not watch the trailer but it seemed like a dark comedy.

You know, people use that phrase, but you wouldn't be getting those 2+ hours back no matter what you did with them. Even if it was having sex with Victoria's Secret models, that's 2+ hours of your life you're not getting back. Granted, one of those options would be more memorable than the other....

Back on topic, I watched this last week on Showtime as well. It was ok, but I don't think an unrated version would be worth sitting through the entire length of the movie again.

Cool info. Thanks Captain Obvious.

True. Taking a nap wouldn't have been more memorable, but it would have been better use of my time than watching that.

Not that anyone but me cares about this dumb stuff, but I was browsing YouTube for some reason, and noticed that they actually list the total running times down to the second of movies on there, and The House That Jack Built (theatrical cut) was "recommended" for me. Other sites (Vudu, iTunes, etc) seemed to only show it to the minute. That got me thinking to check if the Unrated Cut was on YouTube as well, and it was.

The theatrical is 2:30:49
And the uncut is 2:32:21

So that's 92 seconds between the two versions. I haven't watched the theatrical (I don't really intend to ever watch this flick again, to be honest), but my pure guess is that it's mostly from the
Spoiler:
hunting

sequence and the later call-back to that sequence where
Spoiler:
the 'smiling' boy is shown in the freezer
.

Similarly, the difference between Natural Born Killers theatrical (1:58:54) and DC (2:02:00) is only 186 seconds. Most of that one is cutting out a second or two in random spots where the violence was "too much" or the feeling was "too intense." With that one, removing that stuff kind of makes the film feel more brutal... the whole 'less is more' thing.

The scene with Matt Dillon and Riley Keough was cut down (no pun intended, given what he does to her) for the theatrical version, too. Other than that and the aforementioned scene in spoiler tags, the film's pretty much left intact.
