Raw ★★★½

"you taste like curry."

not one of the goriest films i've watched (all the reports of people fainting are overhyping the truth), but definitely one of the funniest of 2016. it's pitch black anatomical humour and i loved every second of it (hot take: the finger scene is funnier than anything in the nice guys).

the narrative can be incoherent at times but the visuals are there to fill in the gaps, blending brutalist architecture with wild parties and mounds of flesh. ducournau has an arresting point of view, and garance marillier is fascinating to watch as she unravels then pieces herself back together again.
