"Pretty good movie which started brilliantly but unfortunately failed to deliver a convincing end."

"A beautiful commentary on society. Everything in this movie is binary. There's no bisexuality, no half shoe sizes. Relationships are built on top of superficial commonalities like a limp or a nosebleed. If it doesn't work out, get some children. Men and women are useless when they're alone. Men will choke to death while eating, women are getting raped. You might as well be an animal at that point. To me the repetitiveness and monotony that spanned everything from camera work over score to dialogues was just a perfect way to underline the movie's message."

"For the life of me I don't understand why this movie gets so many positive reviews. It made many critics' top ten lists for the year. And it is terrible. Just awful. Yes, it is very different, weird, and creative... but that doesn't mean it's good or entertaining. Its a dystopian future that has absolutely no basis in any logic or coherence, the characters are totally unlikeable, and it's unnecessarily cruel. Sometime I think people say they like weird, artsy movies just so they look like they get and appreciate artsy things, not because they actually enjoyed the movie. Don't waste your time. One of the worst movies I have ever watched. "

A surreal sort-of sci-fi sort-of comedy, set initially in a hotel where single people must find a partner within a certain amount of time or be turned into an animal of their choice. Colin Farrell plays our protagonist, David, who chooses to be turned into a lobster should the need arise.

It is difficult to categorize this movie. It is at once a surreal farce, a tragic dystopia, and a romantic tale. How good the movie depends on how one characterizes the movie.

As a farce, the movie criticizes the perceived pressure people feel from society in general to couple with each other. More

From the director of the Oscars nominated movie 'Dogtooth'. If you are familiar with his signature movie, you will find it so good. This is not the best movie I had seen that set in the future, but like any other it was another dystopian tale. More

This was an odd experience, as I just recently ended a self-imposed 12-year moratorium on relationships, due to a couple of bad ones I had within a short period of time in the early 2000's. It was very intriguing to see a type of dystopia exist in which 'singledom' was so vilified to the point of ac More
