Victor's Story: Yearning for More
15 July 2003 | by sprite7312See all my reviews

A tremendous fan of actor James Frain, I am constantly on the lookout for his films and recently caught "Red Meat" on TMC. While I was extremely proud to see JF cast in the role of Victor, a complete contrast to the other two so-called "men" in the film, I was at the same time disappointed that there wasn't more to Victor and Ruth's story than the film had to offer. The utter beauty and depth of Victor's story and his flashbacks of his relationship with terminally ill Ruth ended too soon, too bluntly; I felt unfulfilled and emotionally floundering. Victor informs his listeners that he married Ruth and experienced happiness until she died 3 months' prior; sadly, there are no further flashbacks that give viewers access to his happiness, nor to his devotion to and caring for Ruth during her illness and helping her to prepare for the inevitable. Perhaps a storyline of this magnitude was considered too "mawkish", too "inappropriate" for a "sex comedy" of which 75% focused on the mysogynistic antics of two silly fools whose junior high mentalities degrade and disgrace any male worth his manhood.
