|Documentary filmmakers andre and remy have found an ideal subject in ben. He is witty, sophisticated, intelligent, well liked - and a serial killer. As andre and remy document ben's routines, they become increasingly entwined in his vicious program, sacrificing their objectivity and their morality|
"The filmmakers want to skewer the world's couch-potato lambs for turning in to the slaughter. Desson Howe, Washington Post
"...one of the more interesting foreign movies of the last decade. Mike Bracken, Epinions.com
Editor's NoteA documentary crew is fascinated by the charismatic, unrepentant serial killer whose crimes they set out to objectively chronicle. But as the violence escalates, they become more and more complicit in his shocking actions. A disturbingly low-key satire of the connection between violence and the media.
