Since 1996 film director Michal Kosakowski has been asking people with different backgrounds about their murder fantasies. He offered them the chance to stage their fantasies as short films. The only condition was that they had to act in these films themselves, either as victims or perpetrators. More than a decade later, Kosakowski met these people again to ask them about their emotions during their acts of murder or victimization, and interviewed them about current social topics such as revenge, torture, war, terrorism, media, domestic violence, the death penalty, suicide etc. If someone murdered a person you love, how would you feel about it? Should torture be legalized? Are soldiers murderers? How to define good and evil? Their replies are juxtaposed with the short films based on these 'non-criminal' fantasies made accessible to viewers. Simultaneously, the participants' respective replies help viewers to get better acquainted with them and their highly diverse social and ... Written by
What a truly fascinating piece of dark edged cinema. It astounds me no other users have reviewed it yet. How can a movie be disturbing, enthralling, and even at times funny? Zero Killed manages to do this with ease.
The film is basically a documentary, and it disturbs much more than anything else. The questions it poses are those which most of us avoid answering, (or we might lie when giving an answer). If someone harmed your child in a really bad way, would you kill them? Would you consider killing them? Would you get someone else to kill them? What if you knew by torturing someone you could save many lives? Would you do it? These are just two questions posed by this film.
It then develops into how we as a society dish out justice in the form of the death penalty. A man kills a man, a judge rules he should be killed for doing so, who then kills the judge? If murder is wrong, and that is what we are declaring as a society, then why does the justice system kill too? And we all know governments torture, including those who claim not to (e.g. the UK, read Cruel Britannia) so just what does all this mean? The world's media also dish out images of death and violence which for all intents and purposes is to entertain us. We are immersed in death and violence.
Anyway, this is truly a fascinating and mature discussion on these subjects, including many "fantasies" depicting how those involved might kill off someone who erred them. These more than likely will shock many casual viewers, but there's definitely a strong message being offered here, and one that needed to be said. Highly recommended viewing.
