    Deep Sea


    Tribeca 2023

    Deep Sea, Tian Xiao Peng’s follow-up to 2015’s Monkey King: Hero is Back, continues China’s impressive ventures with animation. Awash with dazzling 3D animation in the style of abstract and classical Chinese art, the movie marks a milestone in Chinese cinema - their animation is here to stay and ready to challenge the established studios at the top of the genre.

    That’s just Colin Farrell’s beard.

    Reuniting after The Lobster, Yorgos Lanthimos and Farrell deliver another strange blast of arty bizarreness with The Killing of a Sacred Deer – a movie that features no deer. Blending in themes of revenge, Ancient Greek mythology, fate and morality (for a few examples), the movie takes you on a strange trip and leaves you feeling strangely numb afterwards.

    It’s a deliciously weird movie. But also a pretty solid one too.…
