No waaay... As bad as people make out... 'A Serbian Film' Is still the daddy of sick movies!
The horror status this movie has got is pretty high... Possibly, seen as a must for die hard horror fans...
I'll start off on a high, Melancholie der Engel has great camera work, & to a large extent, the soundtrack is OK...
However... Its just waaay too long...
There is some great sick scenes in there, but it just gets boring in between, & the dialogue is terrible... Which for me is the biggest bummer, as regarding the storyline, there is just nothing to grab onto, at all, its basically just random scenes of emptiness...
I'm guessing this movie got rated so sick for the animal cruelty in it, which of course is bad... However compare that to the extreme scenes of paedophilia in 'A Serbian Film'... Well... I know which were more disturbing for me...
At the end of the day, this movie is only worth a watch to see how it compares to the rest of the so-called sick movies...
