  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.
