NY Times covers Human Centipede 2

If you go by the motto that you're not anybody unless you've been featured in the New York Times - then Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence is definitely something.  An alert reader pointed us to this recent story about the film. More a "previously in the human centipede saga" than a film it's worth a scan. If only to understand what your the paper of record makes of the story.

And if for some reason you happened up HCNN and aren't that familiar with the underlying content - then this quote from the story breaks it down in a very to the point manner (as well as director Six):
"But most fundamentally “The Human Centipede 2” is, like its predecessor, about a man who kidnaps people and stitches them together, mouth to anus. Mr. Six does not deny that his movie was designed to provoke, and is happy to capitalize on anything that burnishes its reputation for over-the-top grotesquery. “I like to make controversial films,” he said. “I would hate it if I would make a film and people wonder what to have for dinner when the film is over.”"
