Time for some shocking films revolving around FOOD!
Here are two films that take very provocative looks at the relationship between food, sex and death…let’s begin with experimental Director Peter Greenaway’s greatest achievement, with an eye-opening performance by Helen Mirren:
The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover!
This is one of the most shocking films about food ever made, as the wife of a barbaric crime boss takes a secret lover – between meals at her husband’s restaurant!
When the mobster discovers his wife’s secret, things turn VERY NASTY.
“He’s dead. They stuffed him with pages torn from his favorite book. Could you cook him?”
Helen Mirren plays the wife who turns the tables on her husband, and indulges in her own voracious sexual appetite at the same time…
“The Bowel Shot!”
Director Peter Greenaway has made several mesmerizing films, but this is his masterpiece. According to IMDB, the lengthy tracking shot from the restaurant to the toilet is supposed to be symbolic of food passing through the intestinal tract! And the film has an amazing visual style throughout…
What An Ending!
And of course, this movie was rated NC-17 when it was released – for the many scenes of sex and violence throughout…while Helen Mirren won her Oscar by playing The Queen, she is a brave and fearless Actress, as this movie shows:
“Bite Down” On This Ending!
“The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover” is a controversial masterpiece, and nothing tops the “food finale”, which is almost “too much to swallow…”

“Feed” is a crazy 2005 Australian thriller directed by Brett Leonard. The plot involves a police investigation into the sexual fetish known as “feederism”!
