YEAR OF THE CARNIVORE is a romantic-comedy-drama about a girl with an unrequited crush on a boy who thinks she's bad in bed, so she goes out to get more 'experience'. SAMMY SMALLS is a 21-year-old tomboy who works as a store detective at Big Apple Food Town. Her job is to deliver shoplifters to her boss who beats them up so they never re-offend. Sammy is head over heels for scruffy street musician EUGENE ZASLAVSKY. He's perfect for her, funny, irreverent and sensitive, but the problem is, he doesn't want to be in a relationship. After a disastrous one-night stand that goes beyond the boundaries of their friendship, Eugene suggests they play the field to get more experience. Following his advice, Sammy hatches a plan catapulting her on a quest that takes her through her neighbours' bedroom, the public swimming pool, and finally to blackmailing shoplifters into giving her sex lessons in the woods behind the supermarket.

It has a slow beginning, but when it starts, it's freaking intense and it never stops, the performances and directing are across the board incredible.

Jef C (kr) wrote: The vitriol spewed by professional critics upon a film given such high ratings by the general public (e.g., 70% on Rotten Tomatoes as of 07-04-15) is not only emblematic of the undeniably bitter and unfortunate sociopolitical chasm in the US but also symbolic of the silence into which those who embrace minority opinions so easily shame the majority. Some of those who so piously espouse the virtues of divergent opinion and political "correctness" are quick to defend another's rights until those rights are used in a way that ostensibly engenders doubts about their own beliefs. We all must give the proverbial devil his due if we truly wish to uphold equality. As Saul Bellow so eloquently wrote, "Everybody knows there is no fineness or accuracy of suppression; if you hold down one thing, you hold down the adjoining." With all due respect, admiration, and apologies to an immensely talented writer, Mr. Bellow was obviously mistaken when he included "everyone" in his otherwise remarkably profound statement.
