Believe it or not, I don't think there isn't artistic merit in this film. I think art is all relative, and can be defined many different ways. BUT, as for my own moral compass, I just can't co-sign it. That's all... This will talk to some people... Just not me.
thats cool......all people have their own views and tastes on things. I read the bloodydisgusting review where they gave it one skull but then theres reviewers like this who have a different take on the film...
"This is, quite simply, a flat-out brilliant film. There are no wasted scenes. From the first sequence that establishes the generational divide and the discovery of the sins of the father, each scene is note-perfect in escalating the film to a fever pitch. Content aside, on a purely technical level, this film could be released in theatres tomorrow. It's a beautiful film, amazingly well shot, with clear stylistic influences from '70s grindhouse to giallo. It is a mind-blowing, visceral experience that, days later, I still can't get out of my head. It has sparked some of the best and longest discussions on art and film of the entire festival. A Serbian Film hit me like a shot of adrenaline to the brain. Emotional, angry and intense, this is one of the best films I've seen in a long time."
Either way I hope its not banned and shelved forever....
