Red Meat ★★½ 1998

Stefan (Slattery) and Chris (Mailer) are the last remaining members of the Red Meat Club, buddies who get together for macho posturing over steak dinners. This time, they run into Victor (Frain) who's been out of touch. Stefan and Chris boast of their dating games (which are shown in flashback) and then it's Victor's turn to regale them with a lurid sexual saga. Only Victor's story involves his tender relationship with a dying woman, Ruth (Boyle). 94m/C VHS, DVD .
