Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Raw is a visceral, bloody, hardcore look at family, desire and, er, cannibalism. Arriving on a sea of hype – people walking out of screenings, vomiting, fainting and everything in between it’s a film that has a lot of live up to. And for once it does. One of the most intimate looks on film at the taboo of eating human flesh, it’s a film that lives and dies on it’s central performance by Garance Marillier . Which is lucky because she delivers. In spades. I can’t say enough good things about Raw. It’s a hard watch but one WELL worth it. Believe the hype.
