A Dog's World
Directed by Paolo Cavara
Well that was weird as hell. And that pretty much is the only point of this film, to gross you out and to possibly disturb you. Um, okay. I could achieve the same thing simply by looking up how starfish eat their prey (look it up; it is pretty disgusting) and it wouldn't take an hour and fifty minutes.
There is really no plot to speak of, just a series of odd sequences. For instance, fishermen get revenge on man-eating sharks by shoving sea urchins in their mouths. In another part of the film, a woman breast feeds a pig. Ewwwwwwwwwwww….
At the beginning of the film, the narrator claims that none of these sequences are faked, which is actually complete bull and the whole is very staged.
This is one of the first "shockumentaries"which I suppose is why the title is even including in the 1--1 list (either that or somebody slept with an editor). Just not my cup of tea and I definitely could have died without seeing this.
Nominated for an Oscar.
