Filmmakers Andre and Remy have found an ideal subject in Ben: he is witty, sophisticated, intelligent, well-liked - and a serial killer. As they record Ben's routines, they become increasingly entwined in his vicious program.
Satiric, faux "documentary" detailing the life of a serial killer, in which the documentarians go from being passive accomplices to active participants in his crimes. This DVD edition also features a 1993 video interview with the filmmakers ; No C4 for Daniel-Daniel, a student short by the filmmakers; stills gallery ; theatrical trailer.
