Absurd Plagiarism
3 February 2013 | by (Brazil, Rio de Janeiro) – See all my reviews

This is the first time I see a movie so directly copied from another. I had similar feeling when I saw "Black Swan", by Darren Aronofsky, because I thought it was heavily copied from "La Pianiste", by Michael Haneke. However, "Dog Pound" is really shocking when it comes to the extent of the similarities to "Scum (1979)", directed by Alan Clarke.

I think the director Kim Chapiron should have credited the script to Roy Minton (Scum's writer), not to himself. That was his biggest mistake while making this movie, since the overall quality of this work is not the worst. It is a good movie, but quite embarrassing that it is so similar to "Scum (1979)", directed by Alan Clarke. I wonder if the company who produced "Scum" knows about the existence of this plagiarism, because that is how it seems for many viewers.

I wish luck to this young French director Kim Chapiron, but he needs to think twice before trying to hide that it was not him who wrote the script of a film he is directing.

It comes quite difficult to rate a plagiarism, but my vote is 5.
