Remember the trailer for Serbian Movie? It seems that it was nothing and that the film itself is much more disturbing, according to comments coming from the people who saw it at SXSW premiere and who generally, liked what they saw:
“This is a film that left me feeling dirty and assaulted, a film that will surely spark protest and deservedly so.” Twitch Films
“For better or worse, A SERBIAN FILM will mark you for life like few other films have managed.” The Temple of Ghoul
“It’s the kind of movie that grabs you by the collar and drags you through shit you’d rather not.” Aint It Cool News
”...the biggest shocks of the experience come from the fact that it looks like a relatively expensive production, moves along at a competent pace and includes solid performances, indicating the filmmakers’ serious intentions lurking beneath the surface.” Wall Street Journal Blogs
The reactions coming from Twitter are equally strong:
“Serbian Film is the movie that will make Takashi Miike blush”, “I was just traumatized by a movie and it was called Serbian film”, “Once you’ve seen SERBIAN FILM you cannot unsee it. It pushes the limits and is disturbing and I thought it was amazing”, “My friends report that the waitstaff of the Alamo were pissed about being subjected to ‘Serbian Movie’” etc etc, you’ll get tons more if you search for “Serbian Movie” OR “Serbian Film” depending on the translation.
I’m still not sure if I have the guts to see this movie.
