A good movie

Since  I kept hearing some pretty wild things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. Eventually, it turned out to be a rather dark comedy constantly filled with some really weird scenes and some rather funny bits here and there. It was clearly something original and I really liked the fact that the director managed to create a dystopian future without one single futuristic gadget or... read more

The Lobster is a 2015 internationally co-produced film that takes places in a dystopian near future, where single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.

¿Why success spoiled Giorgos Lanthimos? Artificial, incoherent, confusing, it is not a convincing world as in "Canino"; the stars are wasted. I preferred the unknowns -for non greeks- stars of his first films.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- August 2016 (28 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 59min. First Viewing While I'm unable to say that I was as enamored by it as some, the humor was a little to black for me, The Lobster is highly original, funny, and perceptive. It's understanding of "love" is highly insightful, though pretty damn depressing, though it's satire is a bit uneven at times. The cast is superb though, with Farrell leading the way, giving one of his finest performances. Monthly Wesley AwardsBest Actor- Colin Farrell Best Original Screenplay- Giorgos Lanth"

"25.5. Parin vuoden takainen megahitti sisältää Loven tapaan nasevia ja tarkkanäköisiä kommentteja - tällä kertaa parinmuodostuksen dynamiikasta. Vaikka oma ihmisyys on lähellä lähteä, ei pariksi kelpuuteta kuin hyvännäköisiä ihmisiä ja mieluummin valehdellaan sellaisen saamiseksi kuin puhutaan totta omaa persoonaa vastaavalle, mutta hieman rumemmalle. Kertojan käyttö pissii heti alussa silmään, ja elokuva menettää otteensa viimeistään yksinäisten metsäelämään siirt"

No one can deny that The Lobster is a mature and intelligent film with a excelent presentation, theme exploration is made in a very subtly way, has a distopic world more than well explored and presented, the attention to detail it's very impressive: The directing shows a very unique talente, the soundtrack (although being a bit repetitive sometimes) is very atmospheric most of the time and the cinematography is very well made.

"Alternatif bir yakın gelecekte geçen filmde Yorgos Lanthimos bizi çok ilginç bir hikayeye götürüyor. Bu dünyada yalnız insanlar istenmemektedir ve görüldükleri yerde tutuklanarak tuhaf bir otele götürülmektedir. 45 günlük süre zarfında kendilerine bir eş bulamayanlar ise, bir hayvana dönüştürülerek ormana salınmaktadır. David (Colin Farrell) de buraya getirilmiştir ve kısa süre içinde kendine bir sevgili ararken tüm kuralları yıkarak buradan kaçar. Ormanlarda y"

The Lobster

“Don’t take this as a sign that I disliked The Lobster, but what the fuck was this movie?   Not only is there a ludicrous high concept, but the entire thing is a sick joke about the societal pressures of coupling up and romantic entanglements. The whole thing alternates between deadpan, blacker-than-midnight humor and an uncomfortably twisted sense of danger. I’m not sure if the entire thing works, or if it eventually collapses under the strain of its own artistic reach, but The Lobster had me enraptured with its strangeness and perversity for the entire duration.   The Lobster’s wild concept comes roaring out the gate as a woman angrily shoots a goat, who I guess was an ex or something at one point? Anyway, we then meet David (Colin Farrell) as he checks into a hotel, where he ” read more
