RAW - podcast review out now

Julia Ducournau's feature length debut Raw looks in to the sexual awakening of Justine (Garance Marillier), which coincides nicely with her cannibal urges too. A life long vegetarian, an intense hazing ritual at her new veterinary school unleashes a forbidden lust for human flesh which she finds increasingly hard to disguise, and of which isn't helped along by her older sister Alex (Ella Rumpf). Stylistic and clinical, we argue what the use of cannibal-as-sexual-being metaphor means, and also wonder if the film is too tonally aloof for its own good.

We mention Cannibal Holocaust in this review, Check out our podcast review of that film here.
