Yorgos Lanthimos channels his inner Stanley Kubrick in 'The Killing of a Sacred Deer'

Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, The Lobster) belongs to the league of filmmakers for whom the term auteur was invented. His films have a distinct look and they seem to take place in a different plane of existence: the surreal world in his films come with its own set of rules; the characters look and sound like they belong in this world and at the same time they don’t; and the places they inhabit have a cold, sterile quality to them. 459 more words

The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Rest assured that no deer, sacred or otherwise, was harmed in the making of this film, the follow-up to The Lobster from director Yorgos Lanthimos. The title is apparently inspired by the mythic Greek tale of Iphigenia, the daughter of Agamemnon, the king who led the Greeks into battle against the Trojans. 578 more words

The Killing of a Sacred Deer

“Our children are dying, but yes, I can make you mashed potatoes.”—it is a line that typifies the strange world of Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos. His films are clinically measured without an ounce of extra fat and feel like they sit somewhere on the autistic spectrum of film-making, if there was such a thing. 302 more words
