Mother's Meat & Freud's Flesh (1984)

| Comedy | 1985 (USA)
Mother's milk makes strong children, but a child who is a reluctant weaner may have developed a mother-addiction. "Mother's Meat & Freud's Flesh" ironically explores the resulting triangle of a mother, psychiatrist, and mother's boy.

Demira is an actor in porno-movies and the despondent son of a mother who smothers him with love. To get over his obsession of calling her up after every sexual encounter, Demira goes to a psychiatrist. Given his homosexual tendencies, the inevitable happens with the doctor. Naturally he calls his mother - Esther, a brassy blond - who arrives in town for a visit. But Esther, who has visions of Hollywood for her son, also has something of a life of her own. In fact, her current romantic reverie makes her oblivious to her son's depression. Her jealous offspring fails to attract her attention by various antics. Nevermind, his big break has come: he'll be the star she's always wanted him to be. Unfortunately the script written "just for him" is like all the others - sexually and artistically humiliating. Suddenly he's walking off the set, although the cameras are rolling and the director is screaming. Is this a take of Demira cutting the umbilical cord? Written by Rottwang

Back in 1984 when I was attending CEGEP at Dawson Collage in Montreal,I had the pleasure of taking a course titled Film Nouveau taught by Mr. Kazoom.It was there that I got to view Mother's meat and meet with the director.The film itself at first viewing was not that impressive and I found that it was evident that this was an art film by a first time director who was eager to display all his known filming techniques.Now 16 years later it has occurred to me that the film,unlike so many other films that I have seen is still quite memorable,the scenes where the fish is placed on the table and the dining room scene are still fresh in my mind today.If you are the kind of person who enjoys art films then I recommend this film to you;there are many parts of the film that escape my memory,but the fact that many scenes are still crisp in my mind that one has to admit that the director did indeed create art on film and for this he should be proud.I hope to see this film again if the opportunity ever arises again.
