** Averted with the dear night watchman. When Benoit wants to check his size the camera moves away after his zipper is unzipper so the viewer does not see anything.

* DownerEnding: Let's not spoil it.[[note]]Okay, if you insist.[[spoiler: Someone ultimately decides to turn things around on Ben and starts murdering HIS family and loved ones. This leads Ben to decide he has to get out of town, but as he meets with the camera crew to say goodbye, he is gunned down from offscreen, likely by the same unknown revenge-killer, who also kills the rest of the camera crew, the final shot of the movie coming from the camera on the ground as the fleeing sound man is shot dead.]] [[/note]]

* {{Bowdlerization}}: Happened with one of the film's posters. The illustration showed Ben firing his gun at someone out of frame, with blood spatter and a set of false teeth flying through the frame. The original version (probably the better-known now, since it appears on the cover of the Criterion Collection edition), instead of an old person's dental plate, showed ''an infant's pacifier''.

The film was made on a shoe-string budget and therefore made as cheaply as possible. Everything was filmed in black-and-white and the three directors are also the three main actors. Supporting actors are friends and family members, which only adds to the realism. Despite its financial limitations it became a powerful, sometimes funny, often disturbing satire on television's obsession with real-life violence. The film also became a CultClassic outside Belgium.

* MagnificentBastard: In some scenes Benoit comes across as a charming storyteller, in others you realize he is really an AxCrazy psychopath, who feels no remorse for his victims.
