It proves that a catchy title does not necessarily make for a good movie.

An important film, yes, but one frequently surpassed and out-subverted.

This is an original, a stark and (sorry) biting work far more complex, both stylistically and thematically, than first meets the eye.

Misunderstood, this original belgian film is a stairical stab at serial killers, our new "cultural icons"; the moral was misinterpreted by some critics.

The film's absurdly dark humor comes with a price tag, and after a while the continuously mindless and pointless killings begin to exact a numbing toll on the viewer.

A black comedy that's as dark as night, Man Bites Dog is a worthy successor to A Clockwork Orange as this generation's most telling and unflinching look at our views on violence.

a deeply compelling, if ultimately confused, indictment of screen violence as entertainment, one that continues to shock and confound
| Original Score: 3/4

Joins I Stand Alone and Funny Games on the list of maddeningly recondite European films that exploit the violence-in-media subtext to hide their sick, voyeuristic fantasies.
| Original Score: 1/5
