Superb BBC drama
27 September 1999 | by sickboy-22See all my reviews

Meat is one of the best BBC dramas I have seen for many years. Featuring stand-out perfomances from Jonny ( best remembered possibly for his part in Train Spotting and Hackers) and Peter Wright (who..as it happens can also be seen in the classic Naked directed by Mike Leigh). To my knowledge only shown on UK TV only the once, is in desperate need of a repeat. Written by Danny Boyle it follows the life of Charlie Dyce, a young offender who gets on the wrong side of the tracks and wants to make good. Travelling to London he meets Myra played by Sarah-Jane Potts who he falls in love with and who "can't get enough of him". "Say that again" he says. "I can't get enough of you, Charlie". Her boyfriend pimp, however, has other plans and a battle of wills rages supreme.

The film raises the serious debate about "giving in" to society and whether through choice or merely through lack of control of circumstances what happens to "us" is innevitable.
