_The Killing of a Sacred Deer_ made me feel like I'd crashed a cool party where I didn't know anyone. The party was fascinating and I left having enjoyed it, but not in any way I understood.

LIFF31 2017 #1 "A surgeon never kills a patient. An anaesthesiologist can kill a patient, but a surgeon never can". "The Killing of a Sacred Deer" is a mixture of horror, comedy, thriller, and mystery all wrapped up in one bizarre, but brilliant crafted film. Even when you don't fully follow what going on, it at least keeps you interested and engaged. The audience reaction to this was the highlight. Everyone cringed at the brutal parts. Unpredictable is the best compliment I can say. I literally had no idea where it was going and kept surprising me with each scene. I'm kinda lost words with this one. This is me still progressing. The score was brilliant. Having this blast of a roar which shook up the room and was really eerie. The intensity continues to grow as the film moves on, but has it's fair of moments for dark humor. Even the camera work had a Stanley Kubrick vibe. This might be my favorite film from Yorgos Lanthimos.

As with the director's previous films, Dogtooth and The Lobster, this is driven by a deliciously dark narrative, with off-kilter performances from an accomplished cast. Not for everybody's tastes, but attune yourself to the strange directorial style, and you may become as absorbed in the film as I was.

Would have been a 10, if not for one thing: Lanthimos does not understand tragedy. It is not a catharsis, as was the goal of this film; but, rather, an integration of the Apollonian and Dionysian. Indeed, as far as the film goes, in this regard, it tends towards the former over the latter – not a fault, per se; though one wishes that Iphigenia was killed instead of the accidental deer.

CONTAINS SPOILERS10/10  4 years ago
Wow. This movie is great. it is sick. It is disturbing. But also, it is great. Probably one of the best movies of this year, most definatley one of the top 10 candidates. But also so hard to describe without spoilering that I won't even get into it. Just this much: It's a movie about dark se More

My immediate response as soon as this finished was "MASTERPIECE." Lanthimos is back to _Dogtooth_-level craziness with this film and I couldn't be happier. _The Lobster_ was a favourite of mine in 2016, but something about this one's hopelessness drew me in more - odd, I know. Lanthimos' films have More

I am a big fan of some of Yorgos Lanthimos' earlier work, so _The Killing of a Sacred Deer_, which I had been told in no uncertain terms would be a straight up horror movie, was well and truly on the agenda for 2017. Unfortunately, I found that not only was _Sacred Deer_ not at all a horror, but mor More

Finally got the chance to see this via Amazon.

Dogtooth and The Lobster (from the same Greek director, who I must admit has a keen sense of storytelling) did not impress me at all. Very interesting ideas; atrocious presentations. Dogtooth was indecipherable and The Lobster is cruel, ugly, and not h More
