    Man, alot of people from what I've heard don't buy into their dipiction of them being raped by their government as their atempt to justify what goes on in the film. And thinking about that, from what I've heard about what goes on in the film, is pretty ridiculous.

      I've heard three things about it; It's either so ridiculous and over-the-top that it's ridiculous, that It's the most shocking film of alll time, or that It's just boring.
      Like Heretic said, it ain't boring but it isn't the holy grail of shock cinema either. Many fell for it, but on swcond sight, when you dig deeper, you discover its flimsiness and superficiality.

      The question rellay is, who got raped in the first place. Certainly not the serbian people, because a huge portion was/is just downright nationalistic. They weren't misleaded like the Germans by Hitler or so, many did support the war and wished Croatia being wiped off the map.
      The film is just a lame excuse in jusitfying its content by some sort of political background, the "rape" and the deceit of a whole nation.
      Now for that, pass me the bong now, pls.

        • Ok first of all I think people are over-analyzing this movie. I think the writer just got high as fuck and started scheming things on how offensive they could be and how much they could get by with. second, despite it being a well written film that clearly had a lot of money put into it, I consider it for pure shock value. Third, people are being fucking stupid about this, I just read a review some asshole pussy wrote about it, ((Click here to read it) He was trying to say for even wanting to wach it that you are a sick and messed up person. I know I have seen this posted seveal times on here regarding ASF but please allow me to say it, ITS A FUCKING MOVIE. It is not a snuff film an I am sure no one was evn hurt or injure making this movie. I dont see what the big deal is, I really dont.

            You 're right, there's no big deal about it, once the fanboys have realized that it is retarded.

              I dont realy look at it as retarded, I see it more as a conceptual experimentaion.

              • Speaking of similes/metaphors, Frey, your sig is like this movie, unnecessary, overtly tasteless, and unpleasant to look at, please change it.

                • I remember watching earlier in this thread and thinking what a stupid fucking movie to exist, and yet a year later it still the same. I don't know why it was made..I guess just pure shock.

                  • I decided to watch the film on youtube last night (not something I'd buy) just because of its notorious status. It kept stopping about an hour in, but I was close to turning it off anyway and stopped. The build-up was interesting for the first 20 minutes or so but then it started to drag with very little happening. Then the film started to shock for the sake of it. What I saw was just vile, disgusting, repulsive rubbish which I don't need in my life! The plot was thinner than my old Biology teacher! It was just rubbish, although the directing and acting were pretty good. Everything else was just crude and unnecessary. Waste of time!

                        • I think one of the problems with this film, at least from my experience and judging by this thread, is that alot of people read alot about the film and the premise and the wikipedia, etc, before they saw the actual movie, so it wasn't as shocking cause they knew what to expect. Could you imagine just randomly picking this movie up at blockbuster not knowing anything about it?

                          Whoever says this is boring is out of their mind. I would much rather watch something like this which is shocking and offensive but is extremely well made with great production values than garbage like August Underground.

                            • I saw it after much deliberation because I wasn't sure whether I wanted to see something that was that violent and exploitative. However, there wasn't anything in there that I haven't seen in the likes of SAW or even The Human Centipede II. The only thing that was out there was the last scene. Yet, the movie became so superficial towards the end that it wasn't as shocking as it was suppose to be. Like it just seemed so fake to me. I was pretty bored. The first half of the movie promised a bit of depth or potential for some kind of purpose of the movie but it lost it to a bunch of gore scenes with little purpose. The director started blabbering like an idiot and then it was like I was watching a porno version of SAW. Didn't live up to the hype. The only thing shocking I find was that the film director (the real one of the movie) took serious issues like rape and turned into shock value. I have seen movies with less exploitation that was more shocking than this. But kudos to the great acting and production. It was good in that respect.

                              • A Serbian Film really does shock for the sake of shocking, it goes as far as possible and to be honest I did find it a bit try hard.
                                It did achieve making me very uncomfortable and a bit ill though!
