Plot: An aging porn star agrees to participate in an “art film” in order to make a clean break from the business, only to discover that he has been drafted into making a pedophilia and necrophilia themed snuff film.
My Thoughts: Yes by reading that plot you may think that it is pretty disgusting and the movie will be pretty foul, that is why I wanted to watch it, lately I have been on a kick where all I want to watch are very controversial movies. This movie has been talked about a lot since it has hit some of the film festivals and when it finally got somewhere, the movie was edited beyond belief. I had to see the uncut one, I had to, after watching it I sat in a state of shock because I have never seen a movie that pushed so many boundaries, that broke so many rules, that set so many new records of raunchiness. I have heard this movie related to Cannibal Holocaust a lot, this movie is definately not Cannibal Holocaust because it is not shot in some amazon for starters, but the content of this movie and the things they do in this movie I feel in a way surpass what they did in Cannibal Holocaust. The sexual material in this movie is some that I have never seen put to any piece of film, it is so close to borderline pornography. People seem to believe that this is an actual snuff film, but I do not for one second believe that this is actually a snuff film. Even though what is being shot is so horrifying, something about it is very, beautiful in its way, in the fight scenes it is shot so well, when the main character is going through his rage phase, the way the camera shoots everything is actually believe it or not, beautiful.
This movie is not meant to be watched by everyone, you have to be able to watch some seriously disturbing stuff because there is one section in the movie, I have seen a lot, I have watched a lot but there is one particular sequence that I was reaching for the remote to turn it off. At the end of the movie, you will witness what I believe to be the most atrocious kill scenes that has ever been put to film, I can honestly say that I have never seen that before, I was sitting there with my mouth wide open in shock that someone had actually thought of something like this.
Now onto my rating, yes the movie is disgusting, yes the story is disgusting in nature, no it is not terrible, no it is not a snuff film, no it is not the best movie ever, will it be reverred for the boundaries that it broke, that will a definite yes.
I give the movie a 3.5 out of 5, and I want to extend a warning to everyone out there. Read the rating of the movie, read about the content of the movie, do not go into this movie unprepared because you will be shocked and disgusted by it, so if you are going to watch it, make sure that you are prepared.
