A Serbian Film
Word disturbing doesn’t even begin to cover the range of perverse elements on display in ‘A Serbian Film’. Think of the worst and you have it all in the film. Some scenes are so brutal beyond imagination that you almost feel guilty of watching it. To call it sexually explicit will be an insult to the vision of director Srdjan Spasojevic who didn’t shy away from showing the darkest and most depraved desires of human beings.
Lars von Trier’s ‘Antichrist’ is overtly sexual even for the director’s own blasphemous standards. How many film opens with the scene of a husband and wife having sex (unsimulated, as per reports) as their child embrace death by falling from a window? In just one scene the director effortlessly make subtle references to lust, fate and fragility of life. From then onward grief takes over the film and crosses all limits of insanity and perversity as the film progress towards a Biblical but controversial ending.
This Korean Vampire-horror saga beautifully combines elements of thriller, drama and forbidden love. Director Park Chan-wook seamlessly mixes tradition and taboo to present us an engaging tale of a blood thirsty priest gone rogue with the effective use of modern technology.
Don't look Now
The British-Italian horror film ‘Don’t Look Now’ is a perfect example of delivering scares without resorting to cheap thrills. Moody European landscapes and the aesthetic use of the colour red dominates the narrative that forces you to think if all that is going on is for real or a warped version of reality.
Ruggero Deodato’s 1980 take on cannibalism was originally supposed to be a question on who the cannibals actually are. To state it as raw would certainly be an understatement. ‘Cannibal Holocaust’ was unapologetically animalistic, with the director opting to show cruelty and vandalism in its naked form.
