    I loved this movie because of the dark nature of the film and what it depicts. It shows the struggle between the evil and good of man and one of the darker sides of our humanity.

  1. Voyeuristically wallows in the sadistic violence it professes to deplore. What hypocrisy!
  2. 0
    Almost as degrading as any unmarked video you can buy in the back alleys of Manila, and, in its pseudo-significance and arty pretension, it's a lot less honest. I'm heartily sorry I had to poison an entire evening with it.

    The moral contortions of 8MM seem especially bogus, a sadomasochistic peep show booth pretending to be a confessional.
