Man Bites Dog Review

6 years, 8 months ago at Jun 24 0:58

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

In France, it is a huge cult classic. It is in the "1001 movies you must see before you die". It starts pretty well, a little bit like Spinal Tap but instead of hard rockers, you have a serial killer and it has a pitch black humor. But after a while, the jokes get worse and worse with 2 top moments, one when the main character goes to a restaurant to eat mussels and eventually throws everything up... read more

Top 15 Disturbing Movies (15 movies items)

"A camera crew follows a serial killer/thief around as he exercises his craft. He expounds on art, music, nature, society, and life as he offs mailmen, pensioners, and random people. Slowly he begins involving the camera crew in his activities, and they begin wondering if what they’re doing is such a good idea, particularly when the killer kills a rival and the rival’s brother sends a threatening letter.

"Watched: 5/22/12 1st Viewing Thoughts: Disturbing? Sure, but not as much as I'd thought before viewing it. The lead actor is fantastic, playing a true psychopath to near perfection, and most of the story is extremely riveting. (in the "I don't know what sick thing I'll see next" kind of way") In the end, though, you realize it's nothing special, as it doesn't do much different as it progresses, and grows pretty 'Bleh' in the process. Just a nice little movie that I doubt I'll see again. I do re"

"Katsottu: 26.3.2012 Pienistä keskittymisvaikeuksista huolimatta tämä oli melko hyvä leffa, opinnäytetyöksi aika perkeleen erinomainen teos. Huumori oli todella synkkää, mutta tietyt toistetut vitsit jaksoivat naurattaa, vaikka yleisilme olikin karu. Huumorin kääntöpuoli olikin se todella karu yleisilme, joka ajoittain sisälsi jopa kauhupiirteitä. Juuri näin sarjamurhaajasta kertovaa ”dokumenttia” tuleekin tehdä. Pilkettä pitää olla silmäkulmassa, mutta ajoittain täytyy mu"

Imagine Jonathan Swift's essential essay, "A Modest Proposal" stretched out into a 300+ page historical novel. All of its stinging social criticism, its irreverent snarl would get buried by redundancy. Similarly, with Man Bites Dog, the keen, appalling social indictments that had me nodding my head in reluctant recognition at first, managed by the end to leave me rolling my eyes in weary disinterest.” read more

"A camera crew follows a serial killer around, while he exercises his craft Part of the found-footage genre, and it fits in very well. The movie does a good job showing the serial killers personality as he brutally displays and teaches his craft to the cameramen 7/10"
