‘Man Bites Dog’ Movie Summary
Man Bites Dog documents the adventures of the very charming French serial killer, Ben, by a group of film students. It’s your standard university-type black and white film where we learn all about Ben’s life from his sweet working class family at the shop they own. The good boy they know is a stark contrast with the misogynistic xenophobe Ben really is.
Along the way, we learn how Ben picks the people he kills, watch him ruthlessly kill them, and casually dispose of the bodies. Along the way, the film crew gets drawn into the lifestyle as they go from documenters to participants in rape and murder.
