BMMI Episode 019: Jet Li’s Eat Prey Love

jetlieatpreylove_poster

This poster oozes romance like a liver oozes vitamin-rich blood. We take a sympathetic look at cannibals for this week’s film. Jet Li stars as a solo traveler looking to find himself on a spiritual journey around the world. And indeed, he finds himself–another Jet Li, living another life in another city. And there are more of him in more cities. How is this a romance? Sometimes you need to eat ten versions of you to realize that what you were looking for was at home all along. And sometimes, eating ten versions of you gives you the strength, mindpower, and emotions of ten Jet Li’s, which technically just makes you a better you. Cannibalism! Oh, and we also talk about kuru without saying it by name, and prion-related diseases.
