Man Bites Dog (1992)
Man Bites Dog - A French satire film made in documentary style. A camera crew is following around a serial killer, but soon they become involved in his killings. I was expecting a lot more satire from this film, but most of it falls flat. Perhaps it got lost in translation, but I believe this is just a weak satire. The killings are realistic and frightening in their brutality, but the rest of the film drags and goes no where.
Bottom line: I can appreciate its social commentary and shocking violence, but its artsy pretentiousness got in the way of me liking it.
