Marian Dora's Cannibal

I watched Cannibal. I'll say right now that I did not like the film. This was being marketed as a horror and art film. The problem with it is that it is based on a true story. True stories, typically don't make the best story lines because they are what they are. As an art film, it succeeds, it is very well done and often makes you feel as if you're staring at a framed painting rather than watching a movie. The end of the film is essentially a half hour of pure gore. The problem with this, is there is no horror element to it. When your victim is willing, it kills the emotional connection.  The film is out of print and current prices are between 40-100$. I would highly suggest if you are going to see this, you find other means than buying the DVD.
