This one actually was the first film in a long time to shock and disgust me so much. I wouldn’t even consider any of the methods to do so cheap either.
It’s an all around, very strange but really clever story. The backbones are revealed slowly enough to confuse you and make you question how you arrived at certain points but it all ends wrapping up nicely.
I’d consider this sort of an arthouse film stylistically. It works to disgust both visually and sonically at the same time. These artistic choices definitely trump the films plot. Because of how well made the movie is on a technical level, it actually makes a very simplistic plot, incredibly engaging.
The more I think about it, the more praise I can give it. Even under the surface of all the violence lies a very raw (heh) coming of age story. I don’t think it’s a stretch to even say that it’s a strong statement on the uncomfortableness that comes with learning about your own body.
Anyways, if you’re into almost psycho-sexual films and have a strong stomach, I think you’ll really dig this.
