Killing of a Scared Deer. Lanthimos has never made and probably will never make anything approaching a normal film. After the jet black comedy of The Lobster, with was all the better for its absolute deadpan throughout, I was half-laughing at this from the start thanks to the signature line delivery that is always up to be interpreted as stilted/formal/mocking/amusing, but here there's really nothing funny. A slightly strange family find they're cursed, and increasingly desperate efforts are made to escape it. It does have points where I laughed and then immediately wondered what was wrong with me; certain scenes are presented so unwaveringly that the choice is to simply feel uncomfortable or to laugh.
Unlike anything else I have seen in 2017.
