complex tale about the nature of man

while watching this film i often found myself repeating the title over and over again like some sort of mantra that would help me truly figure out its shadowed and concealed plot. after viewing i was left feeling perplexed and unrequited but intrigued but the goings on of a family clearly plagued by inherent violence and unusual treatment of their "fellow" human beings. i put the term fellow in quotation marks because of the unique perspective taken on human nature as a theme of the film as understood from the title. the line between human and animal is blurred and the matter of where our humanness divides from our animalness is never fully resolved.

intriguing film.
