Man Bites Dog (1992)

1992 Man Bites Dog C’est arrivé près de chez vous c est arrive pres Movie Film Cinema Poster ArtThis controversial Belgian comedy drama is a sometimes shockingly violent yet effective satire on the complicity and often culpability of the media in our desensitisation to violence.

One of the blackest comedies you’ll ever see, “Man Bites Dog” will have you laughing at scenes you probably shouldn’t be laughing at; exactly the intentions of writer/directors Rémy Belvaux, André Bonzel and Benoît Poelvoorde.

An extraordinarily good and highly original film.

  1. Paragraph Film Reviews

    Love this film. I reckon it’s the king of so-called ‘mockumentary’ / faux doc films, and even my friends that disklike subs watched this and loved it.

  2. Dark humor with fantastic Benoît Poelvoorde

  3. This one’s a cracker
