Movie: A Serbian Film (2010)
Director: Srdjan Spasojevic
Stars: Srdjan Todorovic, Sergej Trifunovic, Jelena Gavrilovic
Up until this point in A Serbian Film, the most violent thing retired adult film star Milos (Srđan Todorović) has been forced to do is punch a woman in the face. In another movie, that would be totally reprehensible, but what comes next rewrites the standards.
In order to convince Milos that his crazy little porno is "not pornography, but life itself," just one of the flick's many laughably ostentatious lines of dialogue, his employer Vukmir offers a private screening of one his prized works. In it, a large guy dressed in medical scrubs delivers a baby, which we see in all of its painful and vivid gruesomeness. Then, as the newborn cries uncontrollably and the mother looks on with a devilish grin, the doctor has sex with the just-born child.
Milos is, understandably, repulsed; Vukmir, meanwhile, declares, "It's a new genre! Newborn porn!" And us? We're wishing that this was Baby Genuises, or Look Who's Talking. —MB
