Bacon

UK, 1992 (MIFF 1993, Experimental)

Director: Robert Sanders

A surreal, impressively sadistic slice of fetishism with oblique reference to Francis Bacon, the painter, and Bunuel's Un Chien Andalou. In a camp, claustrophobic abattoir a porcine man performs a gruesome ritual. A vegetarian's nightmare.
