A Serbian Film




A Serbian Film always features in any discussion on the most horrific movie one has ever seen along with movies like Salo, Cannibal Holocaust. I have been postponing watching these movies for a long time but sometime back finished watching Cannibal Holocaust and  I have already written about that experience in this blog. But ASF is one movie which I didnt want to see after reading the reviews on it.

Finally couple of days back decided to go ahead and watch it and my first reaction is "Wow it was not as bad as it was written". I felt Martyrs was mroe violent than this movie. One main reason this movie didnt feel as violent as Martyrs was that though there are shock moments in this movie which we have not seen in other movies none of them happen on screen for long moments. There are some extreme scenes but they just appear for couple of seconds.

The hero of this movie is a porn star and the movie follows through his journey when he accepts to do a movie for an unknown gang. I liked the pace and the flow of the movie.

Yes this movie is not for faint hearted as it contains certain concepts more the scenes which can defy anybodys worst imaginations.

Even though the movie touches on such topics our hero is still like any other hero who pukes the moment he realises what he has done which conveys all across the world the moral standards are the same and a hero will always be a good guy.
