My friend Julia Ducournau's film 'Raw' just came out in theaters. When I first saw it, at last year's Toronto Film Festival I thought it was one of the grossest films I've ever seen. It's a well-executed but very kitschy horror movie about a innocent young vegetarian girl who gets sent away to veterinary school where she eats meat for the first time and discovers her true cannibal nature. The film is wild and definitely unexpected. Most of the films coming out today feel like they all resemble one another, but this one is truly something different. Love it or hate it, more films like this need to get made- films that stand out and have their own very unique vision.
