Take a Safe Peak
21 August 2014 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

You ever want to look at something that scares you? Like (for me) a big spider weaving its web outside the garage? You can step back away, watch from a safe distance, not have the image filling your view. Or sometimes you can just peak at something, maybe between fingers, one eye shut? This film lets you see how meat is really made. If you went to a slaughterhouse and walked around, had a tour, it would be a completely horrifying sensory overload. But here, on your TV screen, and in B&W, it seems somewhat safer to look. Close your eyes and it will be gone, you are safe.

There is no narration, just the sounds of the plant as the workers do their jobs, the machinery clanks away. Very sterile feeling. (Nothing like Motel Hell). Very simply, each line at the plant, from rounding up each type of critter, killing it, and processing it.

Again, this may sound overwhelming -- but it isn't. The B&W, the natural sound, the slow even pace, it seems more like an automobile assembly line after a while.

So, if you are fine with not knowing, perhaps even not imaging what goes on in a slaughterhouse then you are all set. But if you are curious -- just what goes on behind those doors -- this film will tell you in as gentle but honest a way possible.
