The British director, Ken Russell, is present at the screening. A friend of mine mentions he was also present for the screening of the torture horror discovery, A Serbian Film (Srdjan Spasojevic, 2010), shown this year at Fantasia where, when he was asked what he thought of the film, answered he thought it was very disturbing. That from a director who’s known for his shocking films. A Serbian Film has caused some commotion this year; in a festival known for extremes, this Serbian offering has aroused strong emotions from its audience. I’m not sure I’m ready to see it, and although I used to devour horror, they don’t make these films as intelligently as they used to. Truthfully, I’ve noticed that horror films affect me more as I age, and I comprehend (and anticipate) my own death. I don’t know if I’ll ever see A Serbian Film, but the dialogue around it is interesting.
