Not very many movies give me a physical reaction but this trailer kinda made me gag. But in the best sense.
RAW in a French/Belgian film written/directed by Julia Ducournau about a vegetarian college student who turns cannibal after a initiation hazing ritual.
I just love the idea of this! Vegans and Vegetarians make me laugh. Not the normal everyday ones, but the ones that try to make you feel guilty for eating bacon because poor piglet. I can only imagine how awful it must be for this chick to just gorge on meat when she hates it. I don’t know enough about this character so I don’t know if she’s the normal kind who just wants to make a good health choice or if she’s the crusader who wants to make Animal Farm by George Orwell a real place.
Anyway, I was really gagging with this trailer. I love meat but damn I could just feel the ecoli multiplying in my stomach when she’s chowing down on raw meat. Yuck. But I really want to see this movie!
Here’s a few fun facts about the film: This was screened at the Cannes Film Festival 2016 and won the FIPRESCI Prize. During the Toronto International Film Festival 2016 some viewer had to receive emergency medical attention because some viewers fainted during the graphic scenes. You know you have a winner when can make someone pass out with their movie.
Look for it in March at your local theater and let me know what your thoughts are.
