Borgman is not your average cinematic fare. Not by a longshot. It is reminiscent of several films, without actually resembling any of them. It has scenery like The Human Centipede (First Sequence), human burial in the vein of Motel Hell and an ending that is reminiscent to The Woman, but that being said, Borgman is absolutely nothing like any of those movies, aside from the shadow of a memory of those films you'll get by watching it. For a movie with its meaning buried so deep, it's surprisingly easy to enjoy.
If you like dry wit, some decent drama and a little horrific action - and don't necessarily mind the fact that you don't have a complete handle as to what's going on - then you will definitely dig Borgman. For the more traditional movie viewer, those that need something a little more concrete, this might not suit your fancy, although there is enough dry humor in here to entertain even the stuffiest of stuffed shirts.
