Well, here's a matchup one can't ignore. If I was going to decide this on the most spectacular act of cannibalism, I'd have to go with Hannibal. Ray Liotta eating his own brain is out-and-out briiliant. It is true that the cannibalism in The Cook had more dramatic thrust, but the pure shock of seeing Anthony Hopkins remove the top of Liotta's head and... well, I was humbled. I just wasn't ready for it. Overall, I'd say The Cook is more disgusting, but Hannibal definitely puts up a good fight. Anyway, The Cook is the more aesthetically stirring achievement, and Helen Mirren is mighty sexy. Hannibal is pretty much good only for the blood and gore. I think this matchup would make for an epic double feature, though.
