Actor Dominic West claims there's a scene in his "bonkers" new film which is "one of the best scenes ever in cinema" which ends with the audience "in gasps of horror."

He stars as artist Julian in new film The Square, which will be released in the UK tomorrow (March 16). The film is about a chief art curator at a Stockholm museum facing problems as he sets up a controversial new exhibit.

West joined Jamie East to reveal more about the film in which he plays "the most pretentious man who ever lived."

He claims the film has "one of the best scenes ever in cinema" when a "so-called performance artist...the world’s greatest chimpanzee impersonator" attends a black tie gala. 

"First of all [he] takes out the rival male the rival alpha-male" and then he "goes to try and find a female and it starts funny and ends in gasps of horror.

"I’m serious. It really is, it’s an astonishing scene and astonishing performance from Terry [Notary]."

The actor also revealed that to inspire him to place the character he "looked at a lot of youtube clips of interviews with artists such as Julian Schnabel."
