This crazy Norwegian opus was released in 2003 but was filmed in the course of 5 years or so, due to different mishaps and technical difficulties. It’s a bold filmmaking statement throughout on anti-establishment and non-conformity. It boasts some dazzling gross-out effects, and impressive pyro-technical work. Its biggest downfall is being continuity, and maybe the reason for this is the time lapse over the years it was shot, people’s visions and mind-sets do tend to change. I get the feeling Bread and Circus is comprised of two different movies which come together loosely at the end.

The first half has a guy literally bursting out of a big twat in the ground -- the birth of innocence from the proverbial pussy of mother earth herself. This guy strays off the beaten path of normalcy, with help from an old guy who literally shoots off his shackles, and persuades him to fight the establishment who are bent on controlling free will. The guy takes in a story from this old feller, while tucking into a nice glass of suds. We then get a series of goofy and over-the-top events as the normal conformist army hunt down and kill different radicals who take refuge in the countryside -- those who they feel are a threat to the moral fabric of society.

Bread and Circus has lots of onscreen carnage, including Tom Savini's relished machete in the head effect, still being used from Dawn of the Dead, to tits being riddled with bullets, bottles being shoved up anuses, a woman being sucked into a giant rectum and crawling through the shit filled tunnel, exploding heads, limbs and bodies being cut into pieces and severed in two, and one hell of a cool mushroom cloud explosion. Not to mention, a cool looking "steady gun" which spirals multiple rounds into numerous victims. The love for weapons of any type is held in high regard here, from bazookas, to golden grenades, to rockets, to mini guns.

The second half of the film focuses on a couple who are enjoying a lovely picnic when they stumble upon a tunnel nearby. The tunnel seems to be some sort of revolutionary headquarters, and contains multiple weapons and a vehicle. The couple learns of the oppressive tyranny of the future and attempt to stop it. Bread and Circus is entertaining, with lots of cool quirkiness and moments that will have you giggling if you’re into sick and humorous screen gags. One thing I noticed is that a majority of the segments featuring the couple in the "second half" (I'm calling it), are not subtitled, so trying to figure out what's exactly going on here is difficult.

Bread and Circus has been referred to as Norway's answer to Peter Jackson's Bad Taste, but I would say it has successfully surpassed it in sheer visual disgusting-ness. A movie that portrays the earth stuck between the legs of a woman who is moaning (I'm assuming a play on mother earth?) and has bloodied people being born through a giant gaping pussy sticking out of the ground with umbilical cords attached and all, gets high points for being perverted and original. If you like to ponder the thought of your gore, check out Bread and Circus. High points go out to director, Martin Toll, for keeping it surreal. Special thanks to the very generous Wild Eye Releasing for sending a copy.
