Here’s the soundtrack CD release to the absolutely brilliant Belgian black satire, Man Bites Dog. A black and white ‘mockumentary’ that chronicles a low-budget film crew documenting a self-obsessed, faux-philosophical serial killer – one who cavalierly explains the dumping of bodies (midgets and children create ballast issues) while taking the hapless crew on a series of (sometimes chilling, sometimes hilarious) murders, while craving the drunken companionship the film’s pretense provides. The killer turns supposed “observers” into participants, as they’re seen dragging bodies around so they all don’t get caught. Yeah… it’s in French, so you’ve gotta read it. But, you’ll get over that once the absurdity begins. Repeated viewings highlight the egocentric subtleties in Benoît Poelvoorde’s gun-wielding lead performance (and his self-conscious interaction with the camera) – so much so, you might consider him genius. The soundtrack CD? First time I’ve really listened to it, though it’s been on the shelf for over a decade (it’s even a French gold disc). Save a few tunes, it’s basically filled with working man’s pub rock/punk rock lite, mostly by composer Jean-Marc Chenut – with two film themes, a few audio snippets, and a studio recording of the drunken street serenade, “Cinema, Cinema.” I’m kinda diggin’ it, but I’m pre-disposed by the attitude of the film, though, most of this material wasn’t even in the movie. While ripping, my system imported English titles (instead of French), so you’re stuck with those. Get the expensive CD or the must-have DVD at Amazon. Watch the entire flick, below. It is violent, though.
