Meat is a movie but it is also raw, confrontational guerilla theatre. It deals in abstracts rather than talking about characters who are instantly recognizable as real people performed by a talented cast who have to live with the choices that they make. It is very possible that viewers will see some of their own desires and frustrations here. The film does not resolves any of the questions it raises and this is not a film for anyone who easily tires of ambiguities. The film has high art shock aesthetics and some memorable imagery and lines of inquiry… “[A] bizarre, chilling little character drama…This is not a slasher flick or erotic thriller, but this an art house story that is told through oblique camera angles, stilted two-handers consisting of little more than elliptic dialogue, blunt-force symbolism and explicit sexual come-ons. People rarely interact like normal human beings would, or do anything that ties them to the real world…The coldly explicit visuals are rough, filthy and graceful.” – ReviewsbyAmosLassen
