Because there's nothing that sez "stick it to da MAN!" like some good ol trash wallow...one of those infamous "you won't wanna see this" morbid-curiosity-bait movies that are going the rounds...thanks for the warnings, reviewers....UNWATCHED...addendum...i watched a little on youtube, about 30 seconds worth, and it looks laughable...looks like run of the mill douchebag torture/kill porn...
A deep examination of sexuality/violence on a micro and macro level in what is simply a story of a man at lengths to support his family. It asks who is at fault in our world for this actual film-- society, government, censorship, family, entertainment, porn?-- and is an examination of the old question: What's art and what does it mean to create? A Serbian Film is also about how 'art' is in the eye of the beholder.
It goes further in sexual rawness and darkness ever made and gaze into the deepest darkest souls of men and women. It is easy to get suicidal with this film's dark themes that goes from incest, rape and extreme violence and it is hard to watch. This is not for the weak of mind or soul and it is understandable that this movie has been banned and debated as this is absolutely a film only one in a million can finish.
⭐/⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (1 stella/5 stelle) Per questo film farò una recensione molto particolare. Consiglio di vederlo se: 1- sei appassionato del vero cinema e quindi vuoi vedere dei film UNICI nel loro genere. 2- hai lo stomaco d'acciaio. 3- non sei facilmente impressionabile e psicolabile. Non è "un" film, è "il" film. Non è horror ma "orrendo". Prende la moralità e la annienta. A voi la scelta.
I understand that every form of art has a massage to express, but not like that; you crossed the ethical/moral line into a world filled with disgust!! There were a couple of scenes that serve no purpose at all but to please those who suffer some serious mental issues. I don't recommend watching this movie at all.
This film earns a five star rating, not because of the shocking material, but because of how it uses this. People tend to dismiss this film, when in reality, this is a incredibly well-executed piece of art cinema. The title is almost perfect, because this is a film that could've been of no other nation. That said, even I struggle with newborn porn.
The film is like the annoying brother who just got his first blowjob in his parents car. He has to show off and think he is big shit. When in fact, he does not have to, this film uses shock to get a release, which I understand it had to do. This film however, regardless of all the controversy. Has a good and entertaining storyline, they just did not hold back enough. But this does not mean it is not a good film!
<<This is real cinema>> the porn director said at the end of the film while he was bleeding on the wall. What did you expect by a torture porn movie? It's a cocaine for eyes. P.S first 30 min are described as ''an happy family'', nothing new, but some parts are disturbing, that's all.
Wish I could ask this fucking moron of a director why he thinks he can show us these awful ideas and images through such a powerful means such as cinema. Hopefully he will never make another film. Stereotypical characters, boring solutions, shock effect- all the tools used by inexperienced unskilled people that want to prove themselves to mom and dad. Truly pathetic.
