Yorgos Lanthimos has a very unique way of working with ideal environments for his detached characters, with the help of surreal elements, dystopian settings, pleasing architecture and a cold color palette. His dark humor and an extreme sense of awkwardness surround his films and The Killing of a Sacred Deer ain't no exception. People seem off, with their minds definitely elsewhere and the jokes are always there. Subtle, yet present. Funny as it is absurd, and scary even though unlikely to happen. Cheers to more Colin Farrell in Lanthimos movies.
I'll say it again...
We Stan South Korea.
Necesito más de Park Chan-Wook y de sus divinos retratos de venganza. Toques de comedia, ironías y giros de trama construyen sus narraciones y Oldboy no es excepción. Inquietante, cruel, fría, y de algún extraño modo, reconfortante.
Larga vida a las bestias.
