Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman And Alicia Silverstone’s New Psychological Thriller You Need To See [Trailer]

For those of you familiar with director Yorgos Lanthimos, you will know his films are a little, err, out there.

Seen The Lobster? Now there’s a film for you to watch this weekend. You can follow it up with Dogtooth for some good Lanthimos measure.

A Greek director now based in London, Lanthimos, as The Telegraph describes, “specialises in venomously funny, bourgeois-baiting absurdism – think Chris Morris by way of Luis Buñuel, or Michael Haneke with a better joke book”.

And here’s just a taste of Lanthimos’ latest offer:

There’s a moment in The Killing of a Sacred Deer in which a teenage boy sinks his teeth into his forearm so deeply, his lips and teeth come up inky with blood. “Do you understand?” he then asks the revolted onlookers. “It’s metaphorical.”

In context, you’d have to agree: the lad’s self-mutilating chomp makes a trenchant point. But it’s also extravagantly unnerving – so much so, you don’t know whether to snigger or retch.

So what’s it about? Well:

Dr. Steven Murphy [Farrell] is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon who presides over a spotless household with his wife [Kidman] and two children. Lurking at the margins of his idyllic suburban existence is Martin [Barry Keoghan], a fatherless teen who insinuates himself into the doctor’s life in gradually unsettling ways. Soon, the full scope of Martin’s intent becomes menacingly clear when he confronts Steven with a long-forgotten transgression that will shatter his domestic bliss forever.

Dum dum dum…

Although international release date is set for today, I am not too sure what that means for South African viewers. Keep your ears to the ground, though, as I am sure you will find a way to check the film soon enough.

In the meantime, Dogtooth and The Lobster.
