Title: Iconic raw-meat-eating scenes in films/TV+texts about eating raw meat
Post by: TylerDurden on April 02, 2009, 06:46:24 pm
I thought this would be a good thread for people to post any raw-meat-eating scenes in movies and TV that they can remember (or come across in the future). For example, here is my contribution:-

1 hour and 27 minutes into the movie Capricorn One, an astronaut is shown killing and eating a rattlesnake, all raw without cooking. I like the notion that the only astronaut who is able to escape, of the trio, is the only one who has the brains to eat raw meat(from a snake) in order to survive.

(Rules of the thread:- You're not allowed to post about obvious sensationalist scenes like Bear Grylls eating raw animals just for thrills. Also, any werewolf-/cannibal-/horror-movies don't count as they usually feature a monster eating raw flesh.The latter rule re horror movies is relaxed, I guess, if people really can't think of other raw-meat-related scenes).

Here's a very amusing raw-meat-related scene from the movie "Bringing Up Baby", where Cary Grant goes into a butchers', is asked how he wants the meat cooked, and says he wants it raw and that it's for "Baby":-

(Scroll to c.8 minutes 34 seconds into the video to watch the raw-meat-related segment. RAFers will find this particularly funny)

(Also there's an amusing very short exchange at 10 minutes 15 seconds into the above video)

weve had this thead before i think. I mentioned the scene in Empire of the Sun where the main character grows weevils in his gruel as directed by the POW doctor for 'protein' and eats them live. My all time favourite movie.

"Shoot to Kill," with Tom Berenger, Sidney Poitier, and Kirstie Alley. Kirstie Alley is held captive by the villain and she catches fish for them out of the river. The bad guy says something about not letting her use fire and she says, "Fine, then we'll have sushi," and she just starts chewing on the fish.

'Rosemary's Baby' - Mia Farrow eats a plate of raw liver out of the fridge  -d.  Grossed me out at the time, but now I almost do the same myself (light searing of the outside, for appearances sake, you understand.)

In the Dukes of Hazzard TV series, Boss Hogg, the chief villain, is often shown eating raw liver. The implication is that someone who eats raw meat must be a villain.

In "The Snow Walker" located just East of Stefansson country, there are two scenes IIRC. One is the same as the fish-eating described by Stefansson, the other is snacking on bits while butchering a caribou.

BTW this is a great movie for close-as-possible to Paleo ways, as the female star, a real Inuk, plays an Inuk of the traditional culture and she obviously knows what she is doing.

This movie is a gold mine for paleo stuff, including a "gathering" (female behaviour & tool) scene. I'll give it away - she "gathers" a burrowing animal that she calls a "sik-sik". It looked to me like unto at groundhog/woodchuck. Not roots or berries; the Inuit knew better than to waste their time on carbs.

There is also a scene showing drying carbou meat and rendering the fat; I don't remember this as having been described by Stefansson.

I haven't seen that one.  There is one movie about the people on the top of the earth, and I can't remember the name of it (and maybe since you know this one and Never Cry Wolf, you may know this too).  It has whale hunting in it, and the male lead gets seriously mauled by a wolf.  This wolf encounter was foreseen bay an elder (?iirc).  His woman fixes him up, and sews animal skin on part of his face as he is really messed up by the attack.  They had a baby too, so she had to work her butt off to help her mate recover and care for baby and deal with a harsh environment.  Good movie, but I can't recommend it without a name.  Anyone know?

I haven't seen that one, but a newspaper offered a $5,000 reward to anyone who had credible evidence of a wolf ever attacking anyone in Canada, this starting ~1930, when that was serious money.
It was never claimed.

I love Ravenous. Of course, it's human flesh so not really something most here get into, but yes at times they eat it raw. The main character after he gets away from the main villian by jumping down a mountain and breaking his leg is lying there for days next to his dead fellow soldier and eventually starts eating him raw.

In star trek deep space 9, the klingons are shown to eat and even prefer raw food that's live and wriggling (such as "gakh") etc. I think the implication is that raw meat-eating encourages aggression and bravery in a species.

In the tv series, "Supernatural", there's an episode in the 4th season, "metamorphosis", where a human becomes a type of monster(a "Rougarou") after eating raw human flesh.

In Lord of the Rings, Gollum catches a fish and eats it raw.

In the opening scene of Apocolypto, they hunt down a hog and divy up the organs eating them raw on the spot, including the balls... altho that was just a prank. 

Also, in the Temple of Doom, does the "KAHH LIH MAHH!" dude eat the heart?

In Babylon 5, aliens are sometimes shown eating raw and even live animal food. The Pakmara in that SF TV series  prefer eating rotting flesh above all else.They're shown in 1 scene by the Vorlon, I think, in a "moment of perfect beauty", implying that they are somehow saintly creatures, in a way.* Actually, now that I've had time to think about it, I think the people mentioned in that 1 scene were  just humans, though*).

What I love about science fiction tv shows like star trek and babylon 5 etc.often depicting aliens in the future eating raw animal foods is that it implies that raw-meat-eating is somehow at the pinnacle of future evolution and that the consumption of cooked-food is just a temporary, backward phase.

Another video game example: A free downloadable game called Ancient Domains of Mystery.  Sure, it just uses ASCII text based graphics, but it's actually a very deep and complex game with many variables, and strangely addictive. Objects and characters are represented with letters and symbols.  For example, gold is represented with a yellow $, the player character is represented with a white @, water in lakes or rivers is represented with a blue =, food is represented with a % (Different colors for different foods. For example, raw meat uses a red %, an apple uses a green %), and enemies and other characters are represented with different letters of the alphabet.  The download is here (http://www.adom.de/adom/download.php3).  There are Windows, DOS, Linux, and Mac versions.  Make sure you download the right one.

There's a song about the fictional TV show "psycho dad" from the TV series "Married With Children", where there's a vague mention of eating raw:-

"Who is the tall, dark stranger there.
The one with the gun and the icy stare.
The one with the scalp of his ex-wife's hair.
Psy-cho Dad, Psycho Dad, Psycho Dad!
He's a durn good pa, but he hates the law.
He's to eat it raw, Psycho Dad! "

The violent cop in the TV show "SledgeHammer" is often shown as preferring to eat sushi(even in a morgue!). He also makes claims in the 2nd(?) episode of the 1st series that eating processed rubbish like doughnuts will clog your arteries and muddle your thinking and turn you into a Liberal.

DS9 is truly the best sci fi series I've ever seen.

In any case, I can't believe no one's posted Dances with Wolves yet, the scene with Wind in his hair and John Dunbar eating the bison they've just killed raw.

At the time,  many bodybuilders were into the whole raw-meat-eating scene, in real-life.

I was thinking about this when I was mentioning a member's post to someone inquisitive about glandulars yesterday:


"Adrenochrome,” he said. “You won’t need much. Just a tiny taste.”
I got the bottle and dipped the head of a paper match into it.
“That’s about right,” he said. “That stuff makes pure mescaline seem like ginger beer. You’ll go completely crazy if u take too much.”
…..
“Jesus! What kind of monster client have you picked up this time? There’s only one source for this stuff….”
He nodded.
“The adrenaline glands from a living human body,” I said. “It’s no good if you get it out of a corpse.”

I dont know if it counts. But we have this guy called Carl Mar Møller who is a life coach for whimpy men who need to find their inner manly nature before they go feral in a shopping mall somewhere. He is often on TV and -obviously in this whimpy uterus society of ours- it is mostly as the butt end of a joke. But I think he has a point. One of the things he do to the clients is to strip them down to skin and serve them raw meat. I did not find it on youtube, but there is some of his courses. When i saw this thread I instantly had images in my head of this group of men sitting in the wild, butt naked, feasting on raw meat still on the bone, prime time, national television. That one certainly earned him a reputation.

Visioneers, 2008 - early in the movie a crazy worker eats "raw hamburger" and a coworker complains to the supervisor, implying that it's a crazy activity. The supervisor decides that it's OK.

It was a little bit of deja vu for me because I got caught eating raw ground beef at work once and the coworker acted like I was crazy but was good-natured about it and didn't report me to my supervisor, but she did blab about it to another coworker.

I often wonder if vampires were just fictionalized legends of gentlemanly counts that drank blood and dabbled in the occult, they would appear as immortal to the peasants who lived and died, because even a mortal who eats raw flesh and drinks blood will seem not to age.

In a day and age when the average peasant died before middle age there could have been blood sucking members of clandestine societies who discovered the secrets to longevity.

Something I dimly remember:- In the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Planescape campaign, "tieflings",  a crossbreed between demons/devils and humans/demihumans, are described as having a very strong preference for raw meats over cooked meats, and prefer eating only animal foods - the "aasimar" in  the planescape campaign, who are a crossbreed between angels and humans/demi-humans, by contrast, are described as  not liking raw meat as they are supposedly too "civilised" to try it!

Other evil-aligned monsters/NPCs in AD&D are often described as having a preference for raw meats in order to supposedly "emphasise" their evil, immoral behaviour in other areas.

In the 1994 movie Love Affair

Warren Beatty orders a drink for Annette Bening at breakfast:

A glass of tomato juice, two raw eggs and a shot of vinegar.

At around 32 min and 50 seconds.

Reminds me, if I remember correctly, Warren Beatty playing the quarterback from the LA Rams drinks a glass of raw eggs in the start of the movie Heaven Can Wait.

Did anyone mention Rocky?

I think the movie may have been called White Fang... can't remember at all honestly I was in elementary school when I saw it, but there was some guy I think in a research station, studying wolves, probably in Alaska, out in nowhere, kicking back what were either live lemmings or some other small rodent. Somewhat ironic as those are actually the staple diet of wolves.

I might be wrong but I think Bill Murray and one of the attractive actresses in the film "Lost in Translation" dine on raw Kobe beef at one point in the movie. It looked REALLY GOOD.

The implication, of course, is that raw-meat-eaters are far more aggressive than any other human being.

Steak tartare sandwich?

In Belgium, we have a typical sandwich spread called "Americain", which is raw grounded beef mixed with mayo, herbs and spices. It's also eaten with a side of fries. So quite similar to tartare. Ironically enough, americans would supposedly be the last people to indulge in this... under-cooked delicacy  ;)

Tyler, what are you referring to when you say AV was often making things up? What makes you say that?
AV made all sorts of absurd claims. Here are a few:-

1) He claimed in his books to know a Native American Chief of some sort. This was a blatant appeal to his Liberal clients near Malibu, California, who were precisely the sort to swallow the Noble-Savage theory, as seen in that ridiculous film "Dances with Wolves". Weston-Price did a similiar thing, though with a lot more data backing his notions.
2) AV claimed to have spent 40 days in the desert after incurring endless illnesses, only to be saved by being given raw meat by some wild coyotes. This is an obvious theft of Jesus' own 40 days and 40 nights experience in the desert, as mentioned in the New Testament!
3) Then there were AV's claims that he had done endless experiments backing his claims that raw foods were healthy, but that the laboratories involved had all been burnt to the ground, and that it would cost millions to get the relevant studies reissued/reprinted, or some such nonsense. The irony is that, while there  are few scientific studies backing raw foods, there are now tens of thousands of studies on the harm done to human and animal health as a result of  consuming toxins derived from cooking, so he didn't have to do that at all.
4) One other thing:- AV also tried to claim that allergies to raw dairy were impossible, he even stated that to me in 1 e-mail. Given that problems with raw dairy are the biggest problem reported in RVAF diet circles, this was very unfortunate. AV promoted raw dairy consumption regardless, as it was the easiest raw animal food for former cooked-foodists to get used to.

Post by: Allrawman on August 14, 2017, 01:01:06 pm
Felt it unfair to leave it at that, so here was some of my thoughts:

1. Are you referring to what he writes about in his book, "We Want to Live?" I know he talks about being confused by all the seemingly conflicting and contradictory information out there on nutrition (I'm sure most of us here can relate) and deciding that if he were ever going to learn about what truly cultivates health, that he'd have to go live in the wild and learn from the animals based on how they lived, and learn from native groups as well. AV says he stayed with several native tribes for periods of time including the Inuit in Alaska. He said all of the tribes told him to eat raw meat to get well. Apparently he thought they were just trying to trick him into poisoning himself because maybe they were wanting to get revenge on the "white man," haha.

2. I think AV said he had fasted many times for various periods of time, but that his 40 day fast was one of the longer or longest. I know someone else who said he fasted for 40 days. I don't think it's implausible that Jesus' 40 days in the desert had inspired others to do the same, or similar.

3. If you read AV's books, newsletters, and Q and A gatherings he'd hold, he mentions various experimental research that he's conducted over many years - he'd say he's always experimenting with something or other and discuss what he was currently doing. But his experiments are fascinating, and there isn't any research out there that I'm aware of like the experiments he'd conduct. Yes he claims the lab that he used to analyze his samples burned down - says he paid over $1.5 mil to have this work done.
I know it sounds convenient for someone wanting to deceive people, but he often explains various experiments he would run in the context of a particular topic or in response to a particular question, and let me tell you - if he is lying about these experiments then he has a fantastic imagination and he is extremely brilliant (and a pathological liar) at constructing well reasoned, well thought out, and seemingly congruent methods and results  on the spot within a context related topic. To me that seems far fetched, as I have spoken with him on various occasions and read through much of his work, and I have never spotted an incongruence - his work is the most coherent and thorough approach I've ever seen.

4. What you're saying here doesn't deal with his integrity or lack there of, but if I remember correctly he would say that people rarely have "true" raw dairy allergies. He would emphasize working with dairy instead of avoiding it, such as drinking at room temp (cold milk can create adverse reactions), adding raw honey to aid its digestion, limiting consumption to smaller quantities (he emphasized how it could be due to detox, or body rejecting it temporarily due to digestive issues, etc.), and fermenting it (e.g., kefir), etc. So there are quite a few things one can do before rejecting it based on the conclusion theres an allergy to it. And maybe you're right that he took into consideration how its easier for most people to do than raw meat as well.

I totally get your skepticism about AV as some of his claims and stories do appear to be pretty..shall we say outlandish, or implausible? But is this basis enough to presume he is dishonest and not being truthful? I think its too easy to dismiss him based on this alone. I say look at his work in depth and judge his work based on how well it appeals to your sense of reason, (maybe intuition) and most importantly if it actually works!

Felt it unfair to leave it at that, so here was some of my thoughts:
1. Are you referring to what he writes about in his book, "We Want to Live?" I know he talks about being confused by all the seemingly conflicting and contradictory information out there on nutrition (I'm sure most of us here can relate) and deciding that if he were ever going to learn about what truly cultivates health, that he'd have to go live in the wild and learn from the animals based on how they lived, and learn from native groups as well. AV says he stayed with several native tribes for periods of time including the Inuit in Alaska. He said all of the tribes told him to eat raw meat to get well. Apparently he thought they were just trying to trick him into poisoning himself because maybe they were wanting to get revenge on the "white man," haha.
Pure bunk. There was so little info provided that it is all highly dubious. When he's being honest, he usually  provides more data.
Quote
2. I think AV said he had fasted many times for various periods of time, but that his 40 day fast was one of the longer or longest. I know someone else who said he fasted for 40 days. I don't think it's implausible that Jesus' 40 days in the desert had inspired others to do the same, or similar.
Either way, AV had a "Jesus" complex. But the whole additional coyote nonsense makes it clear he was spouting tall stories. Since when do wild coyote packs give humans raw meat? I could understand a coyote stealing from human garbage dumps etc., but this is ridiculous.

Even AV admitted, at one point, that he was neither rich nor destitute. And the arson guff is too convenient.

He told me, flat out, that a raw dairy allergy was absolutely impossible via e-mail. As regards the honey, room-temperature stuff etc., many people such as myself  have tried all of them and inevitably failed with them.

 I never viewed AV as being a total loss. I ages ago  referred to him as "half-charlatan, half-genius" and still do(well, OK, 90% genius, 10% charlatan!, these days). AV was  absolutely right on the issues of raw, "high-meat", enzymes, bacteria, and a number of others. I'm still, though,  undecided as regards AV's stances re parasites and possibly 1 or 2  other minor issues. My main(only) gripe is that he advocated a very unnatural raw diet involving too much raw dairy, raw coconut cream, raw veggie-juice and other non-palaeo stuff. I realise that he was, in this regard, trying to create more converts. As regards, the references to native tribes, the 40-days-fasting a la Jesus, the burning lab etc., I don't view that as harmful, really, after all every diet has its ,er, "mythology", such as the Weston-Price Diet, the Stefansson Diet, the vegan diet etc. etc.

While my diet has for years been, more or less, a raw version of the Palaeolithic Diet, I am extremely grateful to AV and Guy-Claude Burger, as, without them, I would never have even found out about RVAF diets, and both provided a lot of the data I needed to recover my health.

Learning from AV helped me to recover my health also. I mean in a BIG way. Completely changed my life. 90% genius, haha, I'll take that! I don't know if you've listened to Alan Watts - he says everyone (even the saintliiest) have a little bit of "rascality" (as he calls it), that that's what makes us human. I think its true - we all have a little rascality in us!

Here, in LOTR, Gollum is revealed as being a fan of raw fish and a hater of cooked foods. Needless to say, the one eating raw meat is also the most repulsive one in the group. I generally prefer it when the raw-meat-eating actor is also the hero of the movie/Tv series etc.  rather than the villain.

It's interesting that (at least in the movies) while Bilbo has the ring, he never ages, but once he loses the ring, he quickly catches up on his missed aging and deteriorates and has to be sent off to live with the elves so as not to die of old age. However, while Smeagol turns into Gollum after centuries possessing and obsessing over the ring, and while he doesn't age, once he loses the ring, plenty of time passes (all the time that Bilbo has the ring and even more), and he still doesn't age a day. Could it be a concession that all of the raw fish he liked (and which he ate whole) kept him from aging too much?

Mark Wiens is No. 1 food tourist on Youtube, and has been followed by
3.5 million people. He ate all type of dishes all over the world,
including raw meat dishes too, and he hold very high opinion about raw
meat dishes in Ethiopia and Thailand and other parts of the world.

Here are some samples of Amazing Amazing simply Amazing raw meat dishes.

Raw Meat and Organs eating in Ethiopia:

 BUFFALO STEAK TARTARE in Laos:

There are many more such mouth watering raw dishes, especially Raw
Fish on his channel.

Enjoy.

PS:
I believe this is one of the best way of presenting the culture of raw
meat to the world.
Perhaps someone good with video editing could collect all these raw
meat eating scenes from his different videos and combine them in one
single video.

But the whole additional coyote nonsense makes it clear he was spouting tall stories. Since when do wild coyote packs give humans raw meat? I could understand a coyote stealing from human garbage dumps etc., but this is ridiculous.

When he says they gave it to him, that's for brevity. Read the version from his book, We Want To Live. The coyotes were actually hunting along with him, or at least they might've thought so even if he didn't realize it. Coyotes aren't wolves, they will take outsiders on a hunt frequently. And of course some of them could've been domesticated stray dogs who were already used to humans. This is a plausible story.

In any case, after fasting for so long, he could've been hallucinating. Especially since he had consumed hallucinogenic drugs a little before that time.

at that point he couldn't even walk, let alone hunt.  It's a bullshit story made up to create a following wanting to believe he has special knowledge and thus can heal others when nobody else can.

What makes you say he couldn't walk?

And it's an inspiring story nonetheless, and the point is not that he has special knowledge, but rather that raw meat heals while vegetables and fruits alone don't. Also, it's about trusting nature and instinct rather than theories developed by bad scientists which are employed by evil corporations and governments.

I believe that is what I either read or heard from him. regardless he never mentioned at that point hunting.  this is what I mean, you want to believe him So much that you will fill in the blanks so that it makes sense to you. 
    I who have eaten raw meat for probably more years than you are old have nothing against his eating all sorts of foods.  Just his bullshit to garner followers like you.

I simply said the story was plausible, not that it must be true. And you must be mistaking the part when he couldn't walk years prior, after the chemotherapy and radiation that left him crippled, before even starting to consume any raw foods whatsoever. He said he got a lot better by drinking raw milk and carrot juice, and was eventually able to walk and even bycicle; that's how he even got around to meeting all those tribes, by bycicling around and hopping on trains.

About hunting, again, he didn't say hunting, but he said the coyotes would play and move around him and then they started running and he followed, he ran after them. It's plausible that they were trying to get him to go on a hunt with them, and when he ran after them, that's what they thought he was doing.

I who have eaten raw meat for probably more years than you are old have nothing against his eating all sorts of foods.  Just his bullshit to garner followers like you.

For someone who must be so balanced and healthy from all those years of healthy eating, you sure sound kind of stressed out about this. It's not like he is hurting people or something. He got more people to eat raw meat in modern western societies than probably all other raw meat proponents combined.

call it what you will.  my only point in my continual posting re.

Just realize that in doing so you may turn people off raw meat entirely. From a newcomer's perspective: If AV was a quack and his raw meat eating being healthy was a delusion or fraud, maybe you've just fallen into the same delusion and you think raw meat is healthy for you but it's not, you just disagree with AV's particular cult. If raw meat eating was truly healthy then you wouldn't exhibit such a strong fanatic reaction to someone promoting a diet slightly different from yours.

Or maybe that's exactly what you want?

I can turn the psychologizing on you, too, you see. Plenty of people want to feel special and superior, and if they find something that really works to improve their health, they don't want others to learn about it and improve their health with it. As that would mean that you're no longer special and superior. Since you can't make people not learn about this, perhaps you resort to the next best thing; making them believe it doesn't really work.

(No, I don't actually believe what I said above. I appreciate you being here and giving your opinions. I'm just saying... chill out, it's not the end of the world if someone wants to follow a particular raw diet plan instead of another)

This is not the thread for discussing AV, it is supposed to be about iconic raw-meat-eating scenes in films/TV.  I  will lock this thread now for a few days  and expect no more on AV in future unless someone wants to post in the primal diet forum, for example. I will unlock this thread some time later, and expect more relevant threads on iconic scenes of raw-meat-consumption in the media in future.
