Age of Cannibals is a darkly---very darkly---comic
film not so much looking at as reflecting the mod-
ern world: its main characters are 30-something-
year-old white Europeans who jet around the
Third World, stopping off at luxury hotels only
long enough to order the lobster and grind the
human employees of the local companies they
shut down into so much profit for their own boss-
es; that might be an honest assessment of the
IMF and IBM alike.
Ruthlessly efficient (or they d be fired) as pro-
fessionals, their personal lives are either collapsing
under the weight of their job demands or almost
non-existent (not counting getting scheister-faced
on the company nickel).
Their lives appear glamorous but are actually
highly-stressed and they could have their expensive
hand-woven rugs pulled out from under their feet
at any moment by a more powerful, more ruthless,
more scared and worried supervisor.
Sounds like anybody you know?
The denouement separates the modern First
World fantasy from the harsh Third World reality
like bullets leaving their ejected shells behind.
Very funny, in parts, very disturbing in the whole.
