Man Bites Dog 1992

A camera crew follows a serial killer/thief around as he exercises his craft. He expounds on art, music, nature, society, and life as he offs mailmen, pensioners, and random people. Slowly he begins involving the camera crew in his activities, and they begin wondering if what they're doing is such a good idea, particularly when the killer kills a rival and the rival's brother sends a threatening letter.

The film has moments of utter brilliance, with the guerrilla filmmaking style perfectly complementing Benoît Poelvoorde's performance, which crashes back and forth between appropriately outrageous and chillingly subtle. However, by the time you reach the end, you feel empty, not because of the film's lack of heart, but it's unwise lack of logic and restraint.
