Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Lanthimos's unsettling tour de force reminds us of how chained to coupledom dignity remains at both the private and public level.
Fresh: ...it plays cleverly with the compatibility assumptions behind, say, singles groups and online dating sites.
Fresh: [Lanthimos'] commitment to his high-concept tragicomedies is extraordinary.
Fresh: Everyone's excellent in "The Lobster," and the suffocatingly bland settings brake just short of monumental claustrophobia.
Strangest film since Zardov
Strange film about relationships. Some gratuitous violence against people so can be quite hard to watch. And some animals. Make sure you watch it with somebody you have something in common with as long as it is not pretend psychopathy. Enjoy!
I love dry, dark humor, but this movie simply could not deliver enough. I tried very hard to watch it, but turned it off before the end. Not recommended - save your money.
Horrid, depressing movie
Pretentious, not clever (let alone intelligent). A serious disappointment. Did not even finish it. Don't waste your time: far better to read a good book.
