I feel Ken Hanke has failed his readers and, to some degree, humanity in even reviewing The Human Centipede earlier this month. This arbitrarily disturbing piece of celluloid tripe deserves no comment (yes, I'm aware of the irony as I'm writing about it now), let alone three stars.
This film should never have been conceived, written, financed or screened. Does anyone in the film industry “just say no” anymore? The Human Centipede makes Salo look like Citizen Kane.
If you're going to give the credence of a printed review to writer/director Tom Six's pointless scatological offering, you might as well seriously critique snuff films, kiddie porn and “Two Girls, One Cup.” If there is any redeeming quality of Centipede, it is only that it can be used as a metaphor for the level of humanity required to put forth the money and effort to have this movie made, viewed (and reviewed).
Yes, Ken: In this metaphor, you're the tail of the centipede.
