MAN BITES DOG is a cinema verite-style mockumentary satire of the highest calibre. Sudden bursts of disturbing violence and sadistic brutality mesh with bleakly humorous moments of dark satire - all shot in stark black and white photography. Made by Belgian filmmakers Remy Belvaux, Andre Bonzel, and Benoit Poelvoorde and released amid a storm of controversy as well as critical acclaim, MAN BITES D... read more

Dark? Yes. Funny? At times. Tedious, overly self-important, and undeserving of its cult-status? Absolutely. The somewhat brilliant concept behind this film would've worked better in a short. The social-satire at the heart of the movie, while initially as intriguing as it is shocking, just doesn't have the legs to hold an audience captive for the duration of a feature film.

A really overrated movie

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. Anyway, I remember it very well when it was released In France. Indeed, at the time, there was a lot of buzz around this movie and it quickly became a huge cult classic. Apparently, it also reached some international recognition as it was later on added in the list '1001 movies you must ... read more

30 From 92: My Favorite Films From 1992 (30 movies items)

" Way before The Blair Witch Project popularized the hand-held camera genre, there was the project known as Man Bites Dog. Or, as the French put it, It Happened in Your Neighborhood. Under either title, this film may not feature a witch (heck, it doesn't even feature a man-bitten dog), but it's still pretty high on the chillingly creepy factor. In a plot that revolves around the concept of "found footage", MBD colorfully chronicles the documented days of the "mundane" life of a colorfully charis"
