Product Description

Intensely grotesque and shocking as hell, Feed is a heavyweight thrill ride through the depths of depravity. A veteran of cyberporn investigations, Australian cop Philip Jackson is no stranger to the dangerous side of sexual fetishes. He may have found his sickest case yet when he discovers a sinister side to an American website devoted to fat-admiring men and obese women called "feeders" and "gainers." Could the man behind it all be force-feeding missing women to death? Tense, dark and deeply disturbing, director Brett Leonard (The Lawnmower Man, Virtuosity) takes the crime-thriller genre to a twisted, gut-wrenching new level.

Feed is directed by Leonard who also brought us cyber-crime flicks The Lawnmower Man and Virtuosity. In Feed, he explores the world of Feeders & Gainers.

Alex O'Loughlin plays Michael Carter, a Feeder who films feeding women online and tracks their vital stats for placing bets as to when they will die. Det. Jackson (Patrick Thompson) finds the website and decides to track down Carter and prove he is a serial killer despite the fact the women are voluntarily fed.

I suppose the film leaves the notion of killing by weight gain up for debate. Both men have valid arguments while neither is truly right. Carter argues that he is helping the women by not judging them and allowing them to take whatever shape they want. He states that the ridiculous ideal woman in America now is an androgynous, hairless, waif that resembles a [...] boy. Det. Jackson argues that since the Gainers eventually die, it is murder. We would prosecute someone for starving another person, then why not for over-feeding her?

Another interesting contrast between the two men is their relationships with women. While Carter is perceived as a serial killer and therefore the Bad Guy, he showers the women in his life with attention and love (even the overweight ones). Det. Jackson is very hypocritical in his notion of saving women considering the abusive relationship he has with his skinny girlfriend.

I feel Carter is the perfect villain. He is sweet, handsome, and charming. He is a stranger you would trust talking to on a street. O'Loughlin plays the role well and can effectively sway from debonair to downright creepy.

Now to the gore.... I was disgusted in a way by the film. While there are scenes of overeating and food fed by a tube down a throat, these actually did not bother me.

Wow! I stumbled across FEED thinking it was some type of schlock exploitation film of the Fat Admirers subculture, and it probably is that, but it is so much more. It has to be the most intelligent, engrossing film I have watched in a long time. The film uses shock to make you question your world and beliefs. It forces you to look at body image, sexuality, criminality and ultimately love in bold new ways. What really struck me was the way that it force-fed its audience the need to question their notions of consent. From the opening sequence of the two German men that the previous reviewer mentioned, the film twists the rhetoric of "My body, my choice" to levels I still can't resolve. Deirdre's complicity with her situation is especially well-portrayed by the actress.

The films' smartest moments derive from the blurring of boundaries between "perverts" and people obsessed with policing said perverts' "desires." As the previous reviewer mentioned, Phillip often seems more of an antagonist than Michael. The final scene is just brilliant: funny, shocking, moving. It cements Michael's indictment of Philip and upholds the notion that there is little difference between being obsessed with perversion and being obsessed with policing perversion. The "spirals of power and pleasure" that encompass Michael and Phillip are awe-inspiring. Never have I seen a film capture this cliched with such conviction.

The director called the film his "love letter to America" and I see it. The film attacks our consumption of our resources, and questions our obsession with being so "fat." The line about the cremation diamonds that Michael delivers to Philip is ingenious!

Obviously, I am in love with the film.

When I discovered Alex O'Loughlin on Moonlight on TV in 2007, I immediately collected all of his work on DVD. FEED is the first one I bought, and I absolutely love it. Alex is a brilliant talent and has an incredible range, showed off beautifully in this film. Alex came up with the topic of "feeders and gainers", a subculture that I did not know about, and he did months of research on it. He co-wrote and co-produced and is quite proud of his work on this movie, as he should be. This film is different and exciting, and the dark humor throughout is fantastic.
The entire cast is outstanding - Gabby Millgate is wonderful as Deirdre, the "gainer" to Michael's "feeder", played by Alex O'Loughlin, and the two of them play off of one another so well. It is easy to see that Gabby is a comedic actress. Patrick Thompson is perfectly cast as the Australian cyber-cop who travels to Ohio to uncover what Michael is up to on his website.
I was so impressed that this movie was filmed in 28 days and on a very limited budget. Not only is Alex's portrayal of Michael Carter amazing, but you will be so impressed by his American accent. You would NEVER be able to tell that he is Australian and has quite a strong accent when not playing a role that calls for a different one. I have seen him do several, and they are all impeccable.
This film is extremely well written, the acting is award worthy, and you will want to watch it many times over. Each time I see some little thing that I missed before. For people watching the DVD for the 1st time, I would recommend that you watch some of the extras first - the interview with Alex and also FEED in Filly, and audience question and answer session after the movie premiered in Philadelphia.
