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.
Love the Weird!
People are either loving or hating this movie. I love it. Don't watch the trailer- you'll expect too much. You have to have a flexible sense of humor & be in a somewhat silly mood or open to being in a silly mood. You can't watch this with an expectation that it will be funny- it won't live up to your expectations. This is a weird, wonderful, smart, subtle, well-acted black comedy. Immerse yourself in their world & enjoy!
Something a little fresh. Definitely not for everyone, but if your looking for something different its worth trying out.
Colin Farrell’s acting is great in this but overall, I hated this movie. I had to turn it off 3/4 through. Didn’t care how it ended. I can’t get why this movie is getting such accolades!
