Julia Ducournau France, 2016

Zachary T.'s rating of the film Raw

Youth culture — its urges, perils, and emptiness — as a Lynchian nightmare, with a dollop of Cronenberg’s body horror. Julia Ducournau’s incisive examination of the shit society heaps at the feet of unprepared young women is more insightful than any straight coming-of-age drama in recent memory. Guided by powerful work from the young Garance Marillier and an eclectic score. The ending had me yelling in shock.
