Yorgos Lanthimos' ALPS (2011): A strange and depressing story but it's great cinema

Originaly titled “Alpeis”, this strange Greek movie is definitely something different. The director of 2009’s Dogtooth is bringing us another mad tale that could affect the sensibility of some viewers, beautifully filmed, with exceptional photography and no soundtrack at all, this weird movie is telling the story of a group of people who start a business where they impersonate the life of people who recently died to help the family with the grieving process of the loss. 186 more words

The Lobster, is the 5th feature film outing by Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos which tells the story of David, played by Colin Farrell, trying to find to love in a hotel designed for that purpose. 408 more words


The Lobster (2015)

Weird, whacky & wicked but equally dull, sterile & vapid, The Lobster is a strange beast that actually begins quite well but tumbles down the road after the halfway mark to conclude on a rather uninteresting note. 444 more words
