Inside The Whore (2012)

Inside The Whore (2012)

Apart from one of the sexiest introductory scenes I've seen - a sensual striptease dance with obscured near-darkness nudity, that ends rather unexpectedly with a genitalia close-up (expect another surprise like that later on, featuring the director himself no less!) and lights turning on, revealing the stage where the movie is to be shown and ultimately acted out on - this is one credibly perverse and violent - Blaire Witch Project style - unprofessional and gritty - cinematic more-thriller-than-horror piece where the director, Reinert Kiil, is actually also the main character (and his character is the director) in the movie. The IMDB description reads:

During the shooting of Reinart Kiil's feature film 'Hora' (in English "The Whore") a lot of mysterious things happened on set. This is the story that should have been told.

So basically it's a mockumentary for Whore, a movie I haven't watched, and feel ambivalently intrigued to watch after this mesh of plotless, pointless, at times sexy - at times just plain grotesque, mixture of macabre, messy footage. At times rather plain, too - especially at the beginning. It details the lives on set of everyone involved: the filming, and eventually the murder and madness it entails to.

It makes me wonder a bit about how they really lived during when this was filmed, and what really happened on the stage, between all these scenes... and what really went on behind the scenes of this mockumentary?! Even though I don't believe this is real for a second, I guess I actually do, because my mind keeps telling me that maybe some of this snuff isn't that far-fetched after all. If they make a documentary on this, or the previous movie, I'd surely watch it. After a stream of false truth I feel like I want the real one, I want something to prove that my gnawing doubt is completely unmerited.

Everything in this movie was captured convincingly. It feels real even if you know it's not, so the actors do a great job... and since the Director is also an actor, it opens up to a certain doubt about whether he is just being himself, a somewhat twisted and shady individual, or if it really is all an act. Either way, I'm left a bit disappointed in the motiveless farce that it is. If it is a statement, to the industry, to people, or if it is an unprecedented and uncensored form of art as the movie itself claims that it is (could that much be true?): all the more reason to present it in a more satisfying, somewhat better structured way. I can't say I'm left with the most impressive impressions of the director either. I'm wondering who he is, how far he'd really go for a movie (as he did go pretty far directing this - as seen by spoiler above - and by his intentionally creating a negative image of himself - even if nobody was killed in the process). It seems it still is messing a bit with my mind, that much to its merit!

Actually, there's probably a lot of careful craft behind the senseless display of documented events, much more than I'm willing to dig into and analyze. It may be worth more than a first impression, and it may be more relevant if you've seen the movie it's based upon.

 rated 3/5: not bad
