Scuzzy, leering portrait of a young bisexual hustler., 22 March 2006
Author: EyeAskance from fabulous Las Vega$!

J.C. is a loner with a boner, a drifter who arrives in metropolitan San Francisco to flit about from man to man to woman to man...etc. His virile young body his only means of survival, this creature of the street demonstrates the nadir of desperate survival-ism as he boffs a slew of various sluts, perverts, and letches for pay while intermittently flashing back to the sad days of his childhood...a time when his scumbag father and harlot mother played around on each other, leaving the poor boy to observe from the shadows.

Lurid, voyeuristic sexploitation feature is presented with a pseudo-artsy edge, but the proceedings are mundane and the lead never becomes anything more than a zombified screwing machine. THE MEATRACK is little more than a trashy titillation film from "the other side", and as such should be a hell of a lot more interesting and at least a little bit more shocking than it is.

3.5/10...just another piece of meat.
