Movie Reviews

Meat Is Murder
RHC | 10/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Shooting Vegetarians is a surprisingly thought-provoking film that should be watched by all viewers, from meat-eaters to vegetarians to vegans.

The young hero of our film is Neil, and he is a vegetarian. Our hero initially doesn't appear too concerned with why he's a vegetarian. On occasion, he preaches half-heartedly about the abuse cows endure when they're manufactured for food. Neil's half-heartedness may be contributed to the world's indifference to his convictions.

Either way, his convictions are put to the test when his father presents him with an ultimatum - Neil must work side-by-side with his father in the family's butcher shop, or face being evicted from home by his parents.

Like Moshe (Moses), Neil climbs to the mountain top of the skateboard ramp, faces the Chicken-Gd, channels the Chicken-Gd's wise words, and makes the choice to stand up for his beliefs.

The events that unfold are ambiguously reminiscent of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Very dark, pessimistic, and altruistic, yet served up with a provocative moral - don't just say you're a vegetarian/vegan, make sure you mean it, and do the right things to protect animals.

Look for a fantastic, avant-garde acting frenzy exhibited by Élodie Bouchez (The Dreamlife Of Angels) as The Happy Coffee Shop Girl, as well as a cameo of actor Will Keenan as Karate Coffee. Keenan appears during the end credits as a karate man asking for a cappuccino at the organic café. You must watch the credits to see his cameo.
