They say you are what you eat – Review of MEAT

Rick McGrath [Celluloid 11.30.10]  Rating: 9 out of 10

When killer Dutch writer/director Maartje Seyferth came up with the concept for Meat, she must have seriously pondered Matthew’s admonition about the flesh being weak in the face of temptation.
And then dropped some acid.

Or she may have considered the wisdom of Oscar Wilde, who claimed the only way to deal with temptation was to give into it. In Meat, both ideas work, and both are explored. The resultant story is a stunningly rich study of sex and death, pleasure and pain, fantasy and reality – as well as one of the most imaginative damnations of the animal industry you’ll ever experience. Yes, butchers are a tradition that goes back to the domestication of animals, but a butcher is also a metaphor for cruel and deadly people, and Meat certainly has its freezer full of dastardly delmonicos caught in their own obsessions of passive-aggressive sexual dominance and guilt.
