Review

A retired porn star is persuaded to do one final film for a big sum of money by an insane "filmmaker" who tricks, drugs and forces our protagonist to do increasingly heinous acts of violence, torture and worse against various women, himself and ultimately his family. Allegedly the makers of this extremely graphic and insensitive film claimed that the crap they were filming was some sort of allegory for how Serbia had been treating its own people after the civil war, but I won't stand for it. If they cannot formulate an intelligent and/or artistic allegory without raping my eyes and ears, then I'm not interested in what they think they're trying to say. And the most offending thing about Srpski film is the indecency in trying to camouflage their fetishism for extreme images and boundary-pushing as something with artistic merit or something of even the faintest interest to moviegoers and film lovers.
