This surreal erotic thriller is set in a flesh-filled and violence-prone butcher shop. A large, lustful butcher, used to living out his sexual fantasies in the shop, becomes interested in Roxy, his young female apprentice. The girl, documenting everything with a video camera, enthusiastically gets involved with him. But when the butcher is murdered and a police inspector, who looks exactly like the dead butcher, investigates the crime, the story takes on a dreamlike quality.
An overweight and ugly butcher is sexually involved with his boss and his younger and attractive co-worker, who also likes to film stuff in green nightvision for some reason.
Some loser is out there doing who knows what in an office. His mom doesn't think much of him and he's not interested in his girlfriend/wife at all.
The attractive butcher girl is somewhat slutty, lets others take advantage of her, and gets herself involved with some animal activist guy. There's a murder I guess, and it turns out the loser is a cop tasked with the investigation. In the end there's something of a twist.
Meat features very little dialogue but lots of animal meat/gore which is a bit more perverse and sick than it needs to be. The butcher doesn't do butcher work if you will, instead he cuts up animal carcasses and organs in some gore-porn fashion for the sickos behind the camera. There's some ugly sex among ugly people and mostly unattractive nude bodies. The story seems to be OK...for a short, which this movie sort of is but they just added a bunch of gratuitous animal meat footage as filler and to make up for the absence of dialogue.
The ending is puzzling and I'm not sure if it's possible to make sense of the movie after all.
