Raw, 01:10, Channel 4

Not a movie to watch right after a big meal. Julia Ducournau — who, with this and Titane, quickly becomes the heir to David Cronenberg’s body horror realm — delivers meaty drama about family and desire. Garance Marillier plays Justine (the name’s nod to De Sade presumably intentionally), a student who joins her older sister Alexia (Ella Rumpf) in veterinary school. While the former face a week of initiation rituals, the vegetarian Justine fights a new desire for flesh – of a particular kind. It is a splendid nightmare, with baroque flourishes and the relentlessness of tragedy. SW
