(5-Okay Film)

Intriguing. Unpleasant. Vulgar.

Escaping from an odd dystopian retreat where men and women must find their perfect match or risk being transformed into an animal, David (Farrell) finds love in the woods among people who have sworn to be single for the rest of their lives. The entire thing is performed deadpan, and the director, Yorgos Lanthimos, finds the tone he wants for this bizarre material and sticks to it. He a filmmaker and provocateur of considerable talent, but of his work that I’ve seen, I’d rather not have seen it. He’s unpleasant and vulgar for no greater purpose than to grab attention.

-Walter Tyrone Howard-
