This movie was fantastic. Clever, original, and sadistic, my kind of combo. Delicatessen is an interesting take on a post-apocalyptic social circle, where people have become okay (loosely okay) with cannibalism as they are sold human from the deli that resides at the bottom of their housing complex.

Delicatessen is overall just an absorbent amount of creative. Whether it be the plot or shot choices, or the editing decisions, it all comes together to make something extremely unique to watch.

While we live in a time where everything seems to be a carbon copy of each other, Delicatessen offers a world unlike any other and is definitely a must see.
