For all its hysteria and nasty shock tactics, A Serbian Film does have something to say about representations of sexuality, cinematic violence and audience culpability.

If you like amateur, forced spike-table birth, then bloody baby rape, followed by a glass of dazzling White Zinfadel, you will love Serbia!
