It was a strange movie of revenge and it was slow pace to me. Also I found it hard to grasp and it was interesting in a weird way but I really didn't think it was good but if someone likes movies with slow pace that builds up then this would be a good movie. Also the actors are a great cast.
Bizarre. I spent the first 30 minutes of the film trying to decide if it was worth continuing to watch it. Then things started to pick up. Definitely unusual and suspenseful at the end.
After this pile of crap and The Lobster, I will never, ever, EVER watch another Yorgos Lanthimos movie. He is rubbish.
It was okay, but definitely not something I would watch again. Slow in some parts, and you really didn't get the 'gist' of the movie until about 3/4ths of the way through. When I saw the previews I thought it was going to be better than it was.
Same creative team as THE LOBSTER, but there is no levity in this one; it's all anxiety and darkness. I like Lanthimous and Philippou because clearly they see the filmmaker's role as that of a prophet, and they certainly deliver the hellfire and brimstone here. We are lost, and we shall pay a price for it.
If I've ever seen a worse movie, I can't imagine what it was!
Yorgos Lanthimos does it again! Another great movie for yuppy pseuds - all style but no substance.
So, he takes a Greek myth and applies it to his usual schtick about robotic humanoids in order to create the tiniest bit of coherence. Does anyone really care?
I can't see why his uses "name" actors (Farrell, Kidman) and has them recite inanities like a robot, other than defining a style. Why not use non-actors like Roy Andersson? It would certainly be a lot cheaper. As an aside, Colin Farrell is a putrid actor, so why use him at all - unless he is trying to one-up Martin McDonagh?
There was a (very) slight chance for redemption in the scene where Kidman gives a hand-job to one of her husband's colleagues - the Warhol treatment (see Warhol's "Bad" for details.)
This film is brilliant and beautiful. Those not familiar with director Yorgos Lanthimos might be put off at first by the strange deadpan delivery by the actors, but it is part of his bizarre style and adds to the subtle beauty of the film. Original, dark, and layered with meaning this film is one of the best I've seen in a long time.
Neurotic at it's finest!
