A surreal comedy set in a dystopian future where single people are arrested and given 45 days to find love or be turned into an animal.
In 2010 we screened a film called Dogtooth which was written and directed by Yorgos Lanthimos. Dogtooth was one of those films that sharply divided the audience between those who thought it was fantastic and those who thought it was one of the worst things they had ever seen. The audience scores were all 9s and 10s or 1s and 2s. Nothing in between. In the past 7 years I have had more conversations about Dogtooth – either about how great it was or how awful – than any of the other 100 plus films we have screened. So, for better or for worse we are now screening Yorgos Lanthimos’ new film The Lobster. I am hoping it will go down as well (and as badly) as Dogtooth.
