Director: Rémy Belvaux
Following the exploits of a charismatic yet horrifically violent serial killer, this mockumentary brings a little humor to the sociopathic world of Benoit as he pontificates about the twisted ideals and philosophies behind his killings. The fact that the killer is so flippant with the camera crew about his action is what is truly disturbing about this movie because it brings you into the deranged mind of someone who could commit these types of atrocities on the regular.
But despite the horrific subject matter, there is still something whimsical about watching Benoit scare an old lady to death, which “saves me a bullet,” according to him. Everything here is so deadpan and mundane that even the vicious killings are treated in a matter of fact manner. And for anyone with a smidgen or morality, that is indeed disturbing.
