Raw

Rated R 98 minutes 2017

A young French woman goes to veterinary college and becomes a cannibal in this intelligent, provocative – but gory and explicit – semi-psychological shocker by first-time writer-director Julia Ducournau. Special plaudits to actress Garance Marillier as the flustered would-be animal doctor Justine. One minute she’s a naive vegetarian, the next she’s chewing on somebody’s detached finger. Ducournau’s screenplay doesn’t quite follow through completely on its ambitious anti-meat premise, but it’s better than ninety percent of the junk out there. The “Brazilian bikini” depilatory scene is a show-stopper. Costarring Ella Rumpf and Rabah Naït Oufella (109 min., 2016, rated R) (K.V.)
