Episode 087: "the Lobster" & "the Killing of a Sacred Deer"
Deer Lobster! Yorgos Lanthimos' combination of cringeworthy comedy and icy realism has produced some of the most compellingly bizarre films of the past twenty years - and tonight we take on two of his best: The Killing of a Sacred Deer and The Lobster! There are few directors like Yorgos Lanthimos, Whose strange blend of icy realism and cringeworthy comedy has the power to make the mundane seem nightmarish, and nightmarish things seem horrifyingly mundane... and tonight MG dives into two of his most effective and upsetting works, each starring the director's most put-upon muse, Colin Farrell! First up, Farrell explains why, if he can't find love, he'd prefer to be The Lobster - and if that's not freaky enough, it's time to get out your blindfolds and load your rifles for The Killing of a Sacred Deer! #MartiniGiant
