Abstract

This piece analyzes aspects of the parallel framing of sexuality and food throughout 20th and 21st century film. It is a rare analysis of film naturalism with common themes that include the comparison of the body, especially the female body, to meat and other food, and ideas of prostitution and cannibalism as methods of consumption of the human body. Films span over 100 years of cinema, from mainstream blockbuster films to underground international film.
