As having just recently viewed A Serbian Film but avoiding Antichrist and Inside for the time being (I'm sure you know why... it takes a lot of energy
to build up to watching one of these types of movies)
I can tell you a few things...
Even though a lot of people don't think so, A Serbian Film is A GOOD MOVIE.
And yes, in a way, you are being a wimp. Because you didn't know, apparently... that... this is very much how the real world is (in fact the real
world gets sicker than that movie, duh... like you said... some movies pale in comparison to these movies.... well guess what.... these movies PALE in
comparison to real life, my friend!)
Which, was the whole point of A Serbian Film...
To give, especially Americans, a glimpse at what the underground porn/trading business is like.
People at the end of Viewings of A Serbian Film were very disgusted, many of them standing up at the credits screaming and cursing the screen. True
Why did they get so angry? Are they really so sheltered? What part about this movie do they think is NOT real? This is ALL real, man. A fictional
story, sure.. but ALL real, my brother. I'm sorry. it's time to step out of our safe zones a bit and realize this and MUCH worse is happening all
around us. It's a GOOD thing you were disturbed, it's a GOOD thing what this movie did to you. Believe it or not.
I just, ... well... despite all that... I just *hope* you didn't see the uncut version (sighs.. still very real stuff, though.)
I AM sheltered, but I still seem to somehow understand this type of activity occurs all across the world on a daily basis. Oh, god.. Think CHINA,
man. Think the the most hidden depths of the world...
With all that said, one thing I don't get is why the Mom and Dad decided to kill themselves AND the child. This is a little overboard and unrealistic
to me. Many kids get raped WILLINGLY by their parents but they don't die, they go on. I'd think eventually dealing/coping with an "unintentional"
rape would be quite easier to manage. Hm?
If it's not intentional, the family could have gone on and been just fine and happy. I mean, technically, the father didn't rape the child, if you
ask me. And the Father could go on to explain to his child that many kids actually get raped by a willing father, but that this incident was in no
I find it especially odd that they made this decision even after they WATCHED PORNO WITH THE DAD IN IT WITH THEIR KID TO BEGIN WITH!@!@@! To ME,
THAT is rape, THAT is molestation... to watch pornography with your child??? with YOU as the star in it? To leave the tapes laying around the house
The movie was rather silly in some ways. it's a lesson, more than anything.
It's a good lesson. All the sex is simulated, and when there is a child in the room they use Props, all props. There's only one real sex scene and
that is the girl actually masturbating at the beginning in the Porn film he and his wife are watching. That's the only incident of "real" sex in the
The director is in good taste if you ask me, it's not the director that is in bad taste, and he should not be held accountable for REVEALING (even
very SHORT of revealing) how the real world is! Yes he, sadly, doesn't even begin to scratch the surface.
I suggest, OP, get your energy and your stomach and wits back about you and continue finding movies like these. Unless it really begins to upset you
and interfere with your life, then it is good for you.
If you'd like some more recommendations just ask. However, UNTIL you are ready to see another disturbing film.
Might I suggest a very good horror flick? It's called Altered, and it's about aliens. It's from the same director as blair witch.
There's disturbing stuff in it, but nothing like that... it's just the right amount of disturbing and fun that should put you back on the right track
to sanity. You'll love it I bet, I did.
From there, though... it is your choice whether you want to take the red pill or the blue pill : )
(Edit: I know I through a non-horror movie reference in there that didn't really go along with it.... but seriously, it's up to you how much deeper
you want to go from this point.....the destination, you will find, is endless hell. To give a heads up.)
