A friend of mine saw this and warned us all away.
What exactly did they think this story has to offer that hasn't already been covered by Delicatessen or The Green Butchers? Well, except for the auto-cannibalism/eating your own penis thing.
I don't think the movie made anything out to be the mothers' fault. That's a simplistic interpretation. The movie didn't assign blame, but did offer motivations stemming from childhood. One man was unreasonably guilt ridden over his mother's suicide and wanted to destroy himself. The other was abandoned by his father and wanted an eternal companion. Also, these things happened to the movie's real-life counterparts (smothering mother, mother who committed suicide). Real life isn't always politically correct.
Two delicious, succulent thumbs down!
Ultimately, shock cinema just leaves you wanting a shower and your time back. This movie, even though based on fact, sounds reminiscent of a fiction film I saw in the 70s at the Los Angeles Film Festival called "Wedding Trough." Thanks for the warning. Who needs this shit?
