Plot – Spoilers:
Begotten is a silent surreal movie that begins with a robed man slashing himself with a razor. He then proceeds to disembowel himself at which point a woman emerges from under his robe. She engages with him sexually, rubs his cum on her bushy cunt and is soon pregnant!
The woman delivers a spastic malformed grown man who crawls about before a strange group of people come upon him and proceed to torment him and later, his mother.
Begotten is a good enough watch without assigning any purpose or meaning. However, if you’d like to assign purpose or a philosophical meaning to it all, the credits help in this regard. The first man was God Killing Himself. The woman was Mother Earth. And the spastic man, the Son of Earth.
