Like its namesake, The Lobster is so cold and spiky that it’s pretty hard to love, and yet no final scene this year left me feeling as complex a mix of emotions as Lanthimos’s finale… The ambiguity here isn’t simply a matter of open-ended narrative gamesmanship, but the culmination of a movie that scuttles agilely and elusively between plausible pathology and stark, fable-like abstraction.

It’s said The Lobster is “dystopian,” “dark,” “absurdist”—critical/zoological shorthand for a semi-endangered species of art film exotica of the Terry Gilliam variety. Superficially, it belongs to the family of surrealism, but Yorgos Lanthimos’s style of rigorous dissociation is better seen as social ritualism. He contrives a stilted, communal, poisoned herd physicality that registers like the telegraphic choreography of silent film if it had been reverse engineered by behaviorist B.F. Skinner.

You don’t require things in common to be in love. You don’t need to be in love or out of love. You don’t need to be with someone or without someone. You don’t have to be married. It’s OK to be alone. It’s not OK to be alone, for some. Please consider this mordantly funny and heartbreaking allegory of the terrifying future.
