Director: Patrick Kennelly | USA | 2015 | 1hr 43 mins
After last year’s Starry Eyes took aim at the Hollywood star factory, Excess Flesh casts a similarly scathing light on the LA fashion scene. The story centres on two young women; stick-thin, bitchy model Jennifer, and the average-size Jill, whose jealousy of her roommate leads to binging and purging to maintain her weight. The tension builds and Jennifer resorts to mocking Jill’s issues, causing the rivalry and recrimination to come to a head. Jill lashes out and violently imprisons Jennifer in a twisted attempt to bring them closer together.
