This review is from: Man Bites Dog  [DVD]  (DVD)If you are a fan of indie or foreign cinema, Man Bites Dog should definitely be on your "to watch" list. We, the audience, are given the opportunity to spend time with Benoit, an intelligent serial killer with a dry wit and a taste for the finer things in life.
Given the nature of his chosen lifestyle, Benoit's dark humour and light heartedness is infectious and disturbing at the same time, especially when children are involved. He kills without thought, and shows no emotion or remorse whatsoever for the most part of the film - and this is eventually what makes the ending of the film so special (that's me tyring to be vague!)
However, I did find myself wanting to like this film a lot more than I actually did. I can't quite put my finger on what it is, but it eemed to lack that "je ne sais quois" and at times I found myself losing concentration.
Overall - a darkly funny movie that will disturb and delight fans of original indie cinema!
