Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 01/01/1993
"...Inconceivably authentic....MAN BITES DOG is a wonderfully ramshackle portrait..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 05/14/1993
"...A viciously funny mock documentary....MAN BITES DOG is a giddy send-up of documentaries that has spoofing fun with its tremulous hand-held cameras and wandering mike..."

Plot Synopsis:

A mock black comic documentary that spoofs reality TV, and questions the media's role in perpetuating and abetting violence. A homicidal maniac, serial-killer, Ben Patard, is accompanied on his killing sprees by a film crew who document, then later participate in, even as they question, his activities.
