Man Bites Dog is a 1992 Belgian black-and-white mockumentary made on a shoe-string budget by four student filmmakers. The film documents the life of fictional serial killer Ben (Beno''t Poelvoorde) who continues on with his "craft" while discussing the finer points of architecture, philosophy and classical music. With cameramen in tow, Ben casually murders old ladies, mailmen, and other random individuals as he details the pros and cons of offing each type of victim. As the film progresses, the cameramen go from complicit bystanders to participants as they begin assisting Ben with his murders. As Ben's violence becomes more random and motiveless, he ends up killing an acquaintance during a family meal. This murder sets in motion a series of events that endanger him and the crew. Seeking revenge, family members of his victims turn the tables on Ben and he goes from killer to hapless victim as his family members begin dropping like flies.
