25 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Meat" changed my life. After viewing it once, I tried to eat meat once again. I got sick and after that, have remained a vegetarian for the past 29 years. The power of the images - without narrative interpretation - is worth a study in itself of the effect of cinema as a language.

This documentary accomplishes something that seems foreign to modern filmmakers - the objective point of view. While every frame is a choice and thus filled with implications, this filmmaker takes no opportunity to poeticize or dramatize a message not already contained in the objective representation.

It is a poignant representation of man's ability to desensitize himself to the plight of coexisting animals on this planet.

But then again, that is only my subjective feeling from the images which themselves do nothing but reflect an objective truth.
