American Cannibal The Documentary


Picture: C+ Sound: C Extras: C- Film: C



Though it pretends to be a serio-comic piece, the only goal of the Perry Gresin/Michael Nigro mess American Cannibal The Documentary is to legitimize bad reality TV and most of its founders are interviewed. Is this a self-critique meant to deflect questioning this type of program? Who cares! It is as tired as it is condescending and except for some archival value, a wreck.


The letterboxed 1.78 X 1 image is dull, boring and typical of HD productions today with limited detail and depth. The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is stretching it a bit, sounding terrible, is often badly recorded and has no surrounds. Extras include TV commercials, audio commentary, theatrical trailer, interviews and four dull video shorts.
