Consumption is evolution
Directed by the criminally underrated Brett Leonard (The Lawnmower Man, Hideway and more recently Man Thing) and slated for a 2006 release, â€śFEEDâ€ť explored an odd fat fetish that after some research, I found out is very popular, specifically in the USA. The subculture, involves the dominant one (the feeder) and the submissive one (the gainer). The feeder stuffs the fattie, she gets fatter and they both get off on it sexually and emotionally. Yup! They're stimulated by her gaining fat! What the f*ck? In the film, they also displayed a kind of mother/son relationship, one that often shifted sides in terms of who was in control. I don't know if that's prominent in real life feed/gain sex cases but I wouldn't be surprised. My thoughts on the phenomenon: Somebody needs to buy an X-Box pronto and use their time constructively!
As for teh flick itself, well now that I stop and think about it,
this sucker punch had some pretty heavy themes stuck to it's fat ass: consumerism, emotional dependency, sexual deviances, self loathing, power tripsâ€¦basically the dark side of human nature. Then why didnâ€™t
it all hit my noggin on a cerebral level while I was watching the film? One word: excess.
Funny how the reason why Iâ€™m giving this blood laced Hagen-Das a high grade is
for the same reason Iâ€™m not giving it a higher grade; it just went too far! On the upside, I often felt like hurling
while viewing this genre left hook, my stomach actually contracted, aiming to regurgitate food. The images that Leonard
bravely slapped my way were not only appalling but also foreign to me, hence upping my â€śdisgustâ€ť
factor two fold. I had a blast being bullied around by this un-apologetic genre
prize fighter! I winced, felt ill and looked away
from the screen more than once. Last time that happened was when I had a blind date with this
dunce with three earsâ€¦but I digress. Having said that, the affair went so far, constantly topping itself in terms of disgusting/disturbing
scenes and even going as far as entering
"Texas Chainsaw Massacre"
territory, that the social commentary it sported went over my spoon. I was too busy surviving the film to go into â€śDeep Thoughts by Jack Handyâ€ť mode. Thank you and screw you for that!
My real peeves with FEED though had to do with its screenplay. The chain of events went by too quickly, was far fetched in places (too many convenient moments to serve the plot) and not as involving as they shouldâ€™ve been (the investigation angle fell semi flat). Then we had the characters that were pretty much all un-likeable. Everybody was damaged, selfish and emotionally ruinedâ€¦so I rooted for the killer... at least he sported personality and seemed to be having fun with what he did. Iâ€™m ashamed of this but the crueler the killer got, the more I laughed. I derived so much satisfaction from seeing that dude do his thing! What a wacko! Lastly, if I see one more psycho having his lunacy tied to his mommy being bad to him as a child, Iâ€™ll shoot my big toe off and mail it to Ethiopia with a loaf of bread. PLAYED OUT!
All in all FEED was an intense, filthy, sexually charged and skull breaking exercise in excess! It just wouldnâ€™t stop stabbing me with CRAZY scenarios up till its sadistic, yet yummy final frames. The film was refreshingly psychoticâ€¦maybe too psychotic for its own good but refreshingly psychotic nonetheless. In the mood for a plate of reality with a side order of insanity? Get this Double Whopper and get your ass kicked!
