A camera crew follows a serial killer/thief around as he exercises his craft. He expounds on art, music, nature, society, and life as he offs mailmen, pensioners, and random people. Slowly he begins involving the camera crew in his activities, and they begin wondering if what they're doing is such a good idea, particularly when the killer kills a rival and the rival's brother sends a threatening letter.Written by

Due to budget problems, it took the filmmakers over a year to complete the film. The company ran out of money several times and shooting had to be postponed until more money could be raised. A lot of friends and family of the filmmakers contributed to the film, both behind and in front of the cameras. See more »

In Australia, the uncut version was refused classification due to "sexual violence". To obtain an R rating, the extensive rape scene was completely edited out. This edited version was used for theatrical, video and DVD releases. See more »
I got it. I appreciate it. I just didn't enjoy it. That's not to say it's not good - just not a movie I'd be keen to rewatch.
The film is gruesome. Disturbing. There's no two ways about it, you most probably will hate your eyes for not blinking while watching it. However, if you prepare yourself and go in with the outlook that the horror featured is a very important part of this film's core point (oftentimes taking over, harshly morphing into the protagonist itself), you won't be disappointed.
Man Bites Dog barks a darkly comedic, flawless script, well-paced narrative, clever sociopsychological observations, and the imagery... love it or hate it, it will stay with you forever.
Dare it. If anything, this is the movie that gave us lines like "Once I buried two Arabs in a wall over there... Facing Mecca, of course."
