Ravenous (1999)

Who's hungry...for a little man on man action? Joe and Trace trek to Northern California to stay at a delightful gay resort in the mountains where the soup is hearty and the men have a certain glow about them. That's right, it's the 20th anniversary of Antonia Bird's Ravenous!

The boys dig into yet another problematic production history (what's up with you, 1999-2000?), probe the positive/negative connotations of a queer reading of the film's take on cannibalism and ship the sultry bear trip finale for the film's unrequited lovers. Plus: Trace educates Joe on Grindr culture and shares his ideal preferred cannibal dish.
