D'Agostino (2012)

How bad is it? It's weirdness almost obscures its badness, but it's quite bad.
Should you see it? If warped gay cinema is your thing, maybe.

A man inherits land in Greece, goes there and finds a naked man in a cage. This man turns out to be a clone created for organ harvesting, then abandoned. The non-clone then decides to raise the other one as a pet and also tries to form him in his own image. There's a lot of pretty scenery, some male nudity and a bit of sex. Then, in a completely illogical plot twist, the clone flies to America (how he knows how to do this and where he gets the money are irrelevant, apparently), and kills and cooks the man's wife. Then, even more inexplicably, the man eats his wife without compunction. There might've been a David Lynch film in this, or a John Waters film, but director Jorge Ameer doesn't even approach Doris Wishman territory with this.
