Storyline

Raised as a rigorous vegetarian, doe-eyed freshman Justine following in her parents' footsteps, she is sent off to the reputable Saint-Exupéry Veterinary school where the black sheep of the family, her big sister Alexia, is already studying. There, young virginal Justine, leaving the familial shelter, will abruptly move into a mad new world of school traditions, vicious initiation tests and hard partying, utterly unprepared though for the rough year start only rush week's mandatory hazing can offer. As a result, with Alexia reluctantly showing her the ropes but only halfway, Justine during the long-established trial of raw offal-eating, she will be forced to chew over her devout herbivorous beliefs and swallow a fresh chunk of bright-red rabbit kidney, unknowingly descending deep into her uncharted animalistic tendencies. Before long, repulsion will be replaced with an unprecedented, equally unquenched and palpable craving for raw meat, transforming Justine into a monstrous carnivore ... Written by Nick Riganas

This cut of meat isn't nearly as raw as it believes, nor is it well done.
16 October 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Lame meat puns aside, my issue with Raw doesn't stem from the meat and bones of the story (last one I promise), but from the absurdly over the top "hazing" of the new students.

I was in the Greek system in college, and yes, there are initiations and hazing. We've all heard horror stories of injury or death related cases resulting from hazing. However, the way this was handled in Raw makes it seem like these students are getting their education in hazing, whereas classes and professors are treated as extra-curricular. These scenes are drawn out in what seems to be an attempt at stylistic cinematography, but with no pay off or plot development, it grows to be mundane and repetitive.

I really wanted to like Raw, and enjoyed it's bizarre coloring and cinematography. It delivers a few powerful, fleeting moments of a grotesque and terrifying cannibal story trying to find it's legs in a sea of screaming frat-boys and music video montages.
