The House That Jack Built has a lot to unpack, so thank goodness it’s two-and-a-half hours. Movie goers can compain about long runtimes but if this movie gave us anything shorter, the film would feel cut off at the knees – a fitting analogy for a viscerally grotesque feature.
Black-and-white is used and abused for style. We often forget how effective it is under limited resources.
In Order of Disappearance is a mainstream action/comedy for the arthouse crowd. It’s brave enough to treat its subject matter seriously and in jest, and the performances are of higher versatility than a cast of attractive household names who signed up for a glamour project.
