Quite possibly one of the most evil movies ever made.
Review here. Another review.
Apparently up there with Pasoloni’s Salo, Philosophy of a Knife, Men Behind the Sun, the Saw films, Hostel, Ichi the Killer, The Human Centipede, Gummo, Inside, Virginie Despentes’ Baise-moi and Gaspar Noe’s Irreversible .
About Salo, this anecdote is interesting:
Incidentally a friend of mine manages a DVD and music store, and she says literally everyone who bought Salo was a well dressed middle aged business man. Clearly fiendish pervs.
Wealthy White male middle aged capitalists are sick fucks, not just obviously, but deep down inside too. Who would have thunk it?
The first 30 minutes of the film has a background noise with a frequency of 28Hz (low frequency, almost inaudible), similar to the noise produced by an earthquake. In humans, it causes nausea, sickness and vertigo. It was the main cause of people walking out of the theaters during the first part of the film in places like Cannes and San Sebastian.
Looks like the makers of A Serbian Film are having a hard time getting distribution. No wonder.
