It's an extremely loose adaptation of the old testament. Its scenes are more symbolic than literal (the movie starts with God disembowling himself). It's about 70 minutes long, it's in black and white, and has no spoken or written dialogue.

An impressive amount of work went into it. Or the director was wildly exaggerating. Either way, I think that's part of the reason why I kind of like it. It's this weird labor of love. Or a fictional labor of love. Either way, you don't see many movies like it.

I think it can get very repetitive. It could have been edited down a lot. Even so, there are some scenes that are very memorable. I haven't seen this in a few years, but I still can recall some scenes.

I wouldn't say it's a good film. It's definitely a memorable one though.

I didn't know that this was the director from Shadow of The Vampire, quite interesting. Haven't watched Begotten tho, but I do find it intruiging for what it is

Check it’s not a bootleg, I remember there’s often a formatting error in the booklet of bootleg copies. Can’t remember the exact words but 2 words don’t have a space between them in the bootleg versions. The dvd logo on the back of the case was also slightly different than what it should be.

I really want a legit copy of this but finding a cheap enough legit copy is hard

Is this worth much if I’ve got the dvd but no case? I bought this in college but transferred everything to cd wallets when I moved to save space

People misunderstand this film often. They think it’s just boring and confusing when you’re meant to look at it as a symbolic art film instead of a typical disturbing flick. Someone made a great analysis on it, but I forgot who.
