What is wrong with that guy?!
18 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Jan Svankmajer is the most unusual stop-motion filmmaker whose work I have seen. Instead of the typical models which are brought to life using this method, Svankmajer takes everyday objects or creepy stuff he's found, perhaps, in antique shops to create films that are truly unique.

In "Meat Love", he's outdone himself in the weirdness department, as his 'puppets' that he animates are pieces of meat! Yes, meat. The film begins with an invisible hand cutting off two slices of meat from a roast. Then, the two pieces begin moving about like people and begin making love to each other!! Seriously strange but also rather funny. My only criticism might be due mostly to when the film was made, as you can clearly see what looks like fishing line holding the meat--nowadays you could just erase that using a computer. Weird and very, very short.
