The closest thing to a comedy to be found in this programme, this Belgian mockumentary follows a crudely charismatic serial killer who is delighted to be the subject of a documentary that will cover his thoughts on the ‘craft of murder’ and classical music. Filmed by then-students in cheap, stark black-and-white, Man Bites Dog’s smorgasbord of depravity defines audacity.

Contains scenes of graphic violence that some viewers may find distressing.
