BLACK CAT, WHITE CAT (1998)

I love this movie.

Matko is a small time, very small time, hustler. He lives in a Fred Sanford-style shack on a large river with his son Zare. Matko has an idea for a scam, but he doesn't have the money to finance it. So he asks gangster Dadan (this guy is one of the funniest characters in the history of movies!!!) for help. Dadan gives him the cash, but then ends up double crossing Matko in order for Matko to owe him a big favor: have Zare marry Dadan's ugly, midget sister. Unfortunately Zare is in love with a beautiful local girl.

That's enough about the story. The real attraction here is the absolute insanity of this movie! It never lets up for a second. Right from the start it's blasting off like a fucking rocket and it only get crazier as it goes! By the end you have a dude baked out of his mind on coke flinging hand grenades around at a wedding and they don't even stop the wedding! To quote the preacher: "This is chaos!"

If you like quirky films then you'll be in Heaven. It doesn't get any better than this. Highly recommended.
It's hard to believe that this is the same guy from A SERBIAN FILM.

Yes, Srdjan is cleaning shit off himself with a live goose.
