Man Bites Dog
Man Bites Dog ★★ C'est Arrive pres de Chez Vous 1991 (NC17)
A pseudodocumentary about a serial killer, filled with evermounting violence. Ben is the killer being followed by a twoman camera/sound crew (which he's hired), who record his casual carnage without lifting a finger to stop him. Indeed his continued killing and robbing is to pay for financing the documentary about himself. This satire on film violence, as well as realitybased TV shows, is both appalling and humorous in a sick way. French with English subtitles. Also available in an unrated edited version. 95m/B VHS, DVD .
