Not sure whether to put this one in "good movies" or "bad movies," but it is made by serious documentary filmmakers and played the Toronto Film Festival, so...

Small | Large


Confessed cannibal Issei Sagawa monologues to the camera, his face often out of focus, and talks to his caretaker brother, who is revealed to be almost as deranged. We also see Sagawa's disturbing comic book reliving his crime and graphic perverted sex scenes, along with old home video footage of the two as happy children. A lot of it is very slow and boring, then there are really sick scenes that will make you want to turn your head away. I could not watch it straight through, had to take a break. CANIBA is very difficult to rate. I am glad someone documented these two twisted specimens of humanity with minimal editorializing, but the result is no fun whatsoever, and offers no insight to their pathologies, making it a very difficult watch on multiple levels. Of interest to sick thrill seekers and serious students of abnormal psychology. It's not released yet and will probably be hard to find; this belongs underground.

Interesting. Looks like an arthouse doco, rather than mainstream. I'd prefer to avoid stuff like this, just watching some crazy guy talk about his cannibalism fetish with no further insights would be both unpleasant and somewhat boring.

That's accurate. It is arthouse, but with an exploitation subject. It's just a curiosity, not something I would recommend to most people. It didn't feel like it belonged in the "bad movies" section. I'm glad someone made it but I won't ever watch it again.

I was in high school (1981) when this happened and I remember being revolted by it then and I still do.  Buggedout

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
