Im reconciled with Lanthimos. Surreal disabled adolescence, and a conventio nal competitive marriage of doctors and sensational kid Barry Keoghan; I like in spite of the ending.

A good movie

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and since there was a decent cast involved, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, after ’The Favourite’ which was pretty damned amazing, it was rather tricky, even jarring, to get back to the dark absurdism which has always been Lanthimos’s most unique trademark.

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and since there was a decent cast involved, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, after ’The Favourite’ which was pretty damned amazing, it was rather tricky, even jarring, to get back to the dark absurdism which has always been Lanthimos’s most unique trademark. Furthermore, it has been 6 years since I saw ‘The Lobster’ and I kind of forgot how Lanthimos treats his characters as some emotionless zombies without much thoughts or feelings. Seriously, as a result, it was rather difficult to really engage myself in this movie but also in his work in general. So, it was definitely a bleak and rather difficult movie, that’s for sure, but the damned thing was still rea” read more

" Date: 1/8/2021 Viewed: Netflix First Viewing Note: This is a movie that I wanted to check out when it came out in 2017, but I didn't have the chance too. I did end up watching Dogtooth (2009) for the first time last year and it made me want to check out the other movies from Yorgos Lanthimos. Seeing that this movie is on Netflix (As of 1/8/2021), I decided to finally watch this movie. This movie was great and I'm finally glad that I watched it. The Killing of a Sacred Deer is a very dark mov"
