wow, the enumclaw horse fucker legend will never die. i hope to god this is a parody.
Too artsy and pretentious looking, and the IMDB movie comments really don't help (this isn't one of those "let's all learn to tolerate and respect animal rapists" things, is it?), but five stars for old horse fucker anyway. Does abbicat ever check poeTV? I want to hear its opinion on this movie.
I've met the guy who plays the horsefucker in the reinactment scenes. He has a delightfully sick sense of humor.
Should be seen by pretty much everyone with a dark sense of humor and a taste for awfulness in society. Go see Chicken Hawk too.
I hate this kind of shit where "art" is used to somehow elevate and highbrow-ize something that's fucked up, period.
I mean, you could use the same technique to make a pseudo-documentary about, say, a man who was a pedophile. Sure, you could paint him in OMG MYSTERY MAN and clever camera angles and Philip Glass music, but underneath the varnish, it's still fucked up shit. It would be one thing if this were a clinical examination of the man and dogfuckers/horsefuckers in general, but it isn't....it's wrapped in this beard-stroking blanket of artsy indie film bullshit.
Of course, predictably, if you criticize films like this you get the tired, old "YOU'RE JUST SCARED CUZ THIS FILM'S ON THE EDGE!" kind of crap.
The man was *bummed to death by a horse*. I'm not too worried that the film is going to successfully reevaluate him.

It will be awesome when parents take their kids to see this, not knowing what it is.

I'm Ira Glass. Today's theme... lethal sodomy.
He was a man like any other -- except for the bit about the horses, but hey.
Come now. Who among us doesn't know someone who has been killed by a tragic horse sex accident? It could have been anyone with that horse cock inside his perforated his colon. Your neighbor. Your father. YOU! When we wage war on horse fuckers we wage war on OURSELVES!
This amazing feeling where you connect with another intelligent being! You know what other beings are pretty intelligent? Humans!
Okay, I actually just saw this, because of this posting, going in basically blind with the story - I knew the obvious part, but I decided to keep myself in the dark about everything else, thinking the movie would be the best way to inform myself of the details.
This is either a really, really, really intelligent meta-parody about the vapidity of Errol Morris films, or else it's a really shitty movie made by a guy who watches Errol Morris films. Errol himself would want me to reserve judgment, but I'm thinking the latter.
