June'18 - I love how thought provoking and daring it is intellectuality. Its strange I made a similar film with a similar premise back in 2010. Maybe it'll be on MUBI someday :) and people can tell me how it sucked and/or I copied it :'( ... here's a link if anyone wants to check it out ... https://youtu.be/iK83lJwVCcY
Finally the semi-new literary genre of "bizarro fiction" has made it to the silver screen. I suppose a cocktail party's worth of viewers could suss out the family dynamics themes in this movie, but, to my mind, it's just a glorious ultra perverse freakfest. Eat your heart out Harmony Korine!
2.7 stars. I do not know if the world needed a droll-nasty-stupid hybrid of Michael Haneke and Harmony Korine but this is what we've got! Pair it with some woozy ambient music and you basically have an extended 'Jam/ Blue Jam' sketch. I do not know if it is admirable to make an aesthetic out of irritation, but he got a reaction out of me... *sotto voice* and I liked all the twee shit.
70/100 (Güzel fikir ancak berbat içerik. Yine çok büyük bir abartı ile karşı karşıyayız. Verilen korumacı, totaliter ve kapitalist devlet eleştirisi çok ama çok iyiydi. Bana Çin'i hatırlattı. Bunun yanı sıra minimalist çekim de güzeldi ancak konunun işlenişi tam anlamıyla rezalet. Bir çok mantık hatası, bir çok cevabı aranan soru ile dolu. Benim için son zamanların en büyük hayal kırıklığı oldu diyebilirim.)
Bizarre, bleak, and one of the most brilliant/original films you'll ever experience. Watching Dogtooth is watching something so ugly and beautiful simultaneously. The film revolves around the kids of a family that have made their own strange reality; they are not allowed to go outside and see the world their parents tell them about to disastrous effects. Watching Dogtooth will make you a better human, genuinely.
