Le fim de violence ultime, qui fait passer saw ou crossed pour winnie l'ourson, vraiment j'ai vu tous les films d'horreur sur le marché celui ci est hors norme... c'est en gros en "documentaire" sur les camps Japonais pendant le Seconde Guerre Mondiale avec des témoignages suivit de "dramatisation" au max! C'est vraiment fort fort je crois qu'il n'y a pas de film comparable sur le marché... Je ne vous conseil pas de l'acheter sauf si vous êtes fan de ce genre de chôses et même... Je suis resté sous le choc pendant une bonne semaine...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 PSEUDO-DOCUMENTARY ON THE JAPANESE UNIT 731 14 mars 2014
Par Kontroversial Reviewer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
Prior to buying this movie it should be said, that this is neither a documentary that would qualify as a history lesson as it contains little actual facts despite a runtime of 249 minutes, nor is it an entirely fictional movie. Horror buffs and gore fans will most likely also be disappointed as well: most of the film is shot in black and white and the gore scenes are not very well done and easily seen as fake, it definitely cannot be compared to the SAW and HOSTEL franchises.

PHILOSOPHY OF A KNIFE's torture/experimental scenes are dragged out and are, hands down, the main focus of this film. It will not appeal to the mainstream moviegoers, it is too shockingly violent, brutal and very disturbing. It is also very "cold" in its depiction of the torture scenes.

The acting ranges from mediocre to bad, but writer/producer/director Andrey Iskanov did a pretty descent job.

Overall I'd say, it is a good movie with flaws - if one is interested in the subject and doesn't mind the majority of the 4 hour runtime being inhumane experiments on innocent people.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 God created heaven. Man created hell. 27 mars 2010
Par C. Christopher Blackshere - Publié sur Amazon.com

So few films really leave a lasting impression. Even rarer is the film that will snatch the breath from your lungs and leave you paralyzed in your seat. If Philosophy of a Knife doesn't leave you shellshocked and numb, nothing will. This is one of the boldest and most impressive achievements in the history of film.

Part documentary, part horror film, this nightmare inducing visual onslaught combines some gripping archival footage, candid interviews, and disturbing reenactments of chemical/radiation experiments performed by the Japanese Army Unit 731 in the 30's and 40's.

This is not a fun film to watch by any means. Shot mainly in black and white, POTK is a grueling, 4&1/2 hour history lesson. The vivid, deranged terror will strike you deeper than any fictional horror film ever could. Besides the melting of flesh and ripping bodies in half, it also flashes dead fetuses and some torturous surgical procedures including some STD experiments. Not for the faint of heart.

Much of this is backed by an industrial soundtrack. Perhaps it feels like an extremely warped and lengthy Nine Inch Nails video. Such a surreal experience. Your eyes will be fixated on the set and you will not even notice the time go by.

One horrible realization to try to come to grips with is the fact that these inhumane experiments performed on the victims actually helped advance Japan's medical knowledge way beyond the rest of the world. The end definitely doesn't justify the means, of course. But it makes me wonder if instead of capital punishment, maybe forcing hardened criminals to become instruments of science would be a viable option.

Masterfully shot and crafted in 2008 by Russian director Andrey Iskanov, Philosophy of a Knife has to be the most overwhelming, bizarre, wicked, creative, horrific, educational, aesthetically beautiful and heartbreaking experimental projects ever committed to film.

It's mind-boggling to realize the evil that man is capable of.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 stylistic true gore 10 août 2009
Par Michael A. Bonamassa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
If this depiction of the horrors placed upon civilians by the infamous unit 731 does not shock you, then nothing will. The filmakers provide one of the most bizarre and brutal films showing the true horrors of a very upsetting event in history. There were times in this film where I had a hard time watching the action(particularly the cockaroaches in the crotch scene)but I just could not turn off the film which is over 4 hours in legnth. The non-stop torture and brutality shown seems to be what was not shown in the film ---men behind the sun. This is very extreme and not for the squemish but should be watched by those who want to see something different, gory and based on fact.

Philosophy of a Knife (Andrey Iskanov, 2008)

For twenty years, a debate has raged over the title of most extreme gore film. While you'll have your classicists arguing for Cannibal Ferox and the like, the real discussion boils down to two films: Hideshi Hino's sixty-minute masterpiece Flower of Flesh and Blood and T. F. Mous' infamous started-as-a-documentary-and-turned-into-a-gore-film Men Behind the Sun. Now, MbtS is twenty years old, FoFaB twenty-three; you'd think by now someone would have pushed the envelope a bit. But those two movies are like the Whitehouse and Sutcliffe Jugend of filmdom; sometimes people get close, but no one ever seems to spill over into unknown territory. There are some envelopes that are, seemingly, made of titanium. The latest chap to try is Andrey Iskanov, whose Nails made me think we might be seeing the first truly boundary-battering Russian director since Tarkovsky; with Philosophy of a Knife, he decided to take what Mous was originally going to do and integrate it with what Mous finally did, creating what the horror underground have been calling a "goreumentary" ever since buzz started flying about this movie a year or so ago. And with a projected running time of over four hours (the released version does, in fact, clock in at four hours and nine minutes, excluding the intermission), a bunch of us believed it was time for Mous and Hino to step aside and acknowledge the new master. Well, now I've seen it. Mous and Hino are resting safely on their laurels.

It's tough to talk about directorial style when you're reviewing a documentary, so I'm not even going to try, except to mention that in the gore-film bits, all the wonderful stylistic quirks that made Nails (and, to a lesser extent, Visions of Suffering) such a treat are absent; I assume that's to keep the film's documentary look-and-feel. I missed them greatly, especially as it seemed to me that some more personal touches from Iskanov might have invested us a great deal more in what was going on; Mous achieves the shock and nausea he does in Men Behind the Sun specifically because he's got himself a storyline and some pretty solid characters, while Iskanov is more interested in depicting the horrors of Unit 731 in a more impressionist style. (There is one undercurrent of a storyline, actually; it involves what seems to be the growing feelings of a male nurse for one of the maruta. And it should come as no surprise that the resolution of that storyline, despite being one of the quietest scenes in the film, is also the strongest.) As a result, while there can be no doubt whatsoever that when you use a metric of gallons of fake blood and innards per hour, Iskanov probably has, in fact, created one of the most violent films I've ever seen, but the gore sequences never get under that barrier of detachment. There's no real effect to them, other than saying "hmm, interesting use of special effects." Also, a number of scenes seem designed more for shock value than anything else (though the documentary half of the film assures us that yes, these things really did happen), which took away from the movie somewhat. It should be noted, again, that the scenes obviously designed for shock value in Men Behind the Sun did not have this effect; i.e., they actually did shock, despite being far less explicit in most cases. I should also point out the soundtrack, which worked very well for a film like Nails, but constantly feels out of place here.

Still, I don't want to give the impression that this is a bad film. It's certainly the most comprehensive treatment of Unit 731 we've seen on screen, thanks in no small part to its epic run time, and that alone makes it a valuable document. And while I know Iskanov and crew spent four years on the project, it does seem as if one more rewrite of the script, to further integrate the gore-film aspects and give us some characters with whom we could empathize, would have done a great service to the finished product. ***

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Frightening, Disturbing, and most of all True 19 novembre 2009
Par Steven R. Shroyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
Woodrow Wilson once said of D.W Griffith's "Birth of a Nation" as "History written with lightning." If that film is written with lightning then this film is history written with a buzz saw.
Andrey Iskanov has been known for surreal shocking visions in films like Nails and Visions of Suffering both of which I want to see after seeing this film and hope to receive for Christmas and in his latest Philosophy Of a Knife he pushes the viewer to extremes that will leave the viewer disturbed, shaken and most of all wondering how a thing like Unit 731 could have happened.

The Film is a pseudo documentary, footage of historical events and an interview with a military translator are interspersed with the reenactments of the experiments of Unit 731, a Japanese Military unit that specialized in medical experiments. These experiments range from biological warfare to frostbite and decompression experiments and all are shown in full detail. There are scenes in this film that will make you squirm, cover your eyes or maybe throw up. I watched this film in two installments over the course of a week due to this film's over four hour length(It is separated on the DVD so there is no thumbing through chapters to find where you left off) and found myself so shocked that I couldn't do anything for the rest of the nights I watched it. This film will test your limits of how much shock you can stand. If you are a fan of Hostel or the Saw series then do not watch this, their gore is tame compared to this film.
The fact that this unit actually existed is what surprised me and that Douglas MacArthur let them go after getting their secrets. This film shows primarily Soviet victims but there were plenty of Chinese victims that were a part of these experiments. The blood and disgusting imagery flows like a river. From a woman getting a disease covered cockroach placed inside her vagina to several scenes of abortions and organs being removed.

If you are daring then try this movie and try to sit through it in one siting if you have the time. I also suggest buying the limited edition for the DVD ROM Extra of having the entire film score on your MP3 Player or computer. The music just adds to the creepy atmosphere and sounds like nothing you ever heard in a film. Watch this film and just see what I mean
