18 A SERBIAN FILM I

For our season finale, we end with the big one. Danny is caught blindsided when he realizes Pappy and David’s red herring film pick — the fictional 2017 film What We’ve Done to Tyler, doesn’t actually exist. His fear of the unknown is immediately replaced with a sense of dread, knowing the rumours surrounding Srdjan Spasojevic’s A Serbian Film. From the sounds of Danny’s voice, the film lived up to the hype. Pappy, David and Danny dispute whether or not the film has a message, as suggested by the director, or if it is simply intended to shock. Pappy is reminded of the brutality of this film, while David begins to see some artistic merit. The last Hot Takes episode of the season is ignited by an inflammatory shock piece.
