    This is the discussion for the most disturbing and depraved film of the decade, if not the century. I shall start it by asking those that have seen the film,

    1. How did you feel about it afterwards?

    2. Did you like the film?

    3. Was it gratuitous or did it have a message?

    4. Did you get sick or have to stop the movie at any parts? etc.

    1. I felt like I had wasted my time.

    2. It was pretty meh.

    3. Whatever message the creators were trying to get across lies somewhere beneath the lurid content, beyond any immediate retrieval.

    4. Only to go answer the phone.

    I don't like films who seem to go out of their way to go: "Ohhhh, we went there!" The message was there, but if I hadn't known what the message was beforehand, I would've never put two-and-two together. Seemed like it didn't even phase me, I have the internet to thank for that. Makes us so desensitized that I practically ate cheetos with hot sauce the entire time I was watching it. Same thing for Human Centipede. The only use this movie has, is to hopefully go back in time someday and show it to people in the 20's.

    1. Hungry.

    2. About as much as I like reading old magazines at the Doctor's office.

    3. Twas an average day for me, and its message was lost while it was trying to be in your face.

    4. Felt alittle sick, but that was cuz of the Taco Bell I had earlier.

    Speaking as a Serbian here I utterly hate this movie and everything about it. No matter what message and point it was trying to make it is irrelevant since most western people will see this as nothing more than another "proof" of us being simpleminded raging blood thursy monsters that the media tries to repserent us anyway...

    Insted of trying to compete with good movie we try to compete with explotation movies and that makes me sad...

    We used to have such good movie back in the day like "The Marathon Family", "Who's That Singing Over There", "Balkan Spy", "We are not angels" and the likes, but now all we seem to make are nothign more than depraved stuff based on criminals, drugs and rape...

    The only moden good Serbian film for me is "Montevideo, God Bless You!" since it's so optimistic and fun to watch and makes you feel good afterward, that comming from a guy that hates soccer, instead of depressed

    Pretty much this.
    One of the most disturbing movies of all time? Yeah right. I fucking laughed at the ending.
    Catchy theme, though.



    The only movies that have ever actually disturbed me are Salo and The Gray Man.

    So a man raping a baby, and a guy accidentally raping his own child is not disturbing to you. Wow, you must be really de-sensitized.

    The baby didn't even look like a baby, and it was so obviously fake that I just rolled my eyes at it. Besides, the dialogue that followed the scene was fucking hilarious.
    And that son raping scene? That was the ONLY part I was kind of like, "Holy shit". That was IT. Everything else just felt like they were trying WAAAAAY too hard to be disturbing.

    Real disturbing stuff is either based on a true story (like Gray Man), or isn't obviously trying so hard to be gory and taboo, yet manages to be fucking messed up (Salo).

    And yes, I am very de-sensitized. I have seen SO MUCH worse stuff than what was shown in the movie. It's important to remember that it's just a movie. Once you see pictures of all of the actors together, smiling, it's really not that bad when you watch the movie itself.

    tl;dr, the movie tried too hard.

    It's true though. Several visits to Rotten.com and 4chan can prepare you for everything.

    Read as: EVERYTHING!

    I decided to properly answer your thread questions Lester.

    1. Grossed out, I mean it wasn't as gory as I thought but that doesn't mean what happened wasn't disturbing for me. Glad it was over, really glad. In fact, afterwards my mates and I put on the Room the change the mood. Confused, what the fuck did I just see? And, angry that I wasted my time :lol 

    2.Neeeh, it was okay.

    3. To be honest, I got no message out of it. It was pretty hard for me to decipher one underneath all the...things happening.

    4. Ummmm, one of my mates missed a bit cause he went to the dunny and asked if we could rewind it. We reluctantly obliged and in his words, "I wish I hadn't asked". :lol

    Shock value was what it went for, and it looked so cheap it failed. I treated it like a comedy and laughed the whole time. Did the same thing with The Human Centipede. Call me desensitized, but movies like this aren't meant to make you sensitive.

    I found it greatly amusing. The shock value everyone raved about I just didn't get.
