A sprawling story which takes place in a frustratingly constrained series of small rooms and trailers. The set-up and performances are commendable but the threadbare production can't support the meager action of the ridiculous finale.
Inciteful and illuminating queer documentary which exhibits uncommon depth of niche information and history. Truly a family affair, the heart poured into the production is evident.
While it is possible that there is a decent film to be made concerning matrilineal cannibalistic veterinarian sisters this is certainly not it. The praise for RAW is baffling, there is hardly an image or thought presented worthy of applause. The film is instead packed with standard-issue faux-intellectual feints at privilege and sexuality, all amounting to and signifying nothing. This is a huge disappointment and missed opportunity; viewers would be much better off watching Cronenberg's RABID, Breillat's ANATOMY OF HELL or Denis' TROUBLE EVERY DAY - all films which better RAW's inept philosophy.
