Extremely grim mockumentary parodying the media's glorification of violence. Some of the on-screen gore is extremely tasteless (especially the rape scene) which led me to feel there's more than a little hypocrisy at play here; but it is knowing and has some stand-out moments, particularly the scene when they run into a rival film crew.

Man Bites Dog review

"We'll have plenty of opportunities." Definitely not for the squeamish, this has got to be one of the brutally violent low budget dark comedies created. Ben, together with Remy and Andre, create a film about murder, creating a film and other topics. On the criterion collection, the directors/producers reveal more about the film, which is a huge plus in enjoying the cult film more. Style of filming as realistic and the people played their respective parts well. Had a few wonderful lines such as "Despite their faults, those people sure know how to live!" "I like to try out new work methods" and "I believe in sharing, no problem." from Ben. a film about film-making with limited budget, it also portrays societies pitfalls, camaraderie, change and how violence plays a part in everyday lif...
