A delicious, mysterious goo that oozes from the earth is marketed as the newest dessert sensation, but the tasty treat rots more than teeth when zombie-like snackers who only want to consume more of the strange substance at any cost begin infesting the world.
It's the kind of movies you can't figure it all out just seeing it for the first time
MEAT is a dark surreal thriller with a complex plot and weird characters. It's all very strange from the beginning, because all the characters have unusual behavior and everything is very disconnected and unclear. We don't know who is who and why they're taking those actions. The main plot's topic is a murder that occurs inside a butcher shop but the oddness begins when we notice that the detective and the victim are so identical that they seem to be the same man (it's the same actor that plays both roles)! Then it enters in a quite surreal and bizarre development that not even the end turns it clear and solved yes, it begins strange and ends even stranger
I liked this mood of mystery and oddness and also some bizarre scenes that occur unexpectedly (like that one when the detective's girlfriend (?) commits suicide, or the urine scene), but the pace is a bit too slow and there're some details that should have been better explained As other users said it's not a movie for everyone and not be distributed in a commercial circuit because it clearly has an experimental and surreal basis that is materialized in an artsy cinematography and unusual plot. It's the kind of movies you can't figure it all out just seeing it for the first time
