Today’s Date: Enfant terrible reaches 60

Denmark’s most controversial film director Lars von Trier is celebrating his 60th birthday today.

Von Trier, one of the central figures behind the Dogme cinema movement of the mid-1990s, has written and directed a number of acclaimed and risque films, including ‘The Idiots’, ‘Dancer in the Dark’, ‘Dogville’, ‘Antichrist’ and ‘Nymphomaniac’.

Earlier this year, it was announced that his latest project, ‘The House That Jack Built’, would be a film, and not a TV series as previously announced.

The film is about a serial killer shot from the first person perspective.
