There’s neither pleasure nor edification in seeing Farrell’s scummy pater squirm while his (of course outwardly stable, secretly fragile, wholly corruptible) suburban household suffers at the whims of a vengeful millennial troll (Barry Keoghan, admittedly pretty creepy). The film’s jerry-rigged, Twilight Zone scenario isn’t suggestive or disturbing; it’s silly, made even more so by the Steadicam solemnity of the presentation.

As in the director’s breakthrough, Dogtooth, and his English-language debut, The Lobster, the real subject is the twisted logic of relationships, obligations, and social façades, caricatured through the director’s distinctive blend of grotesquerie, surreal deadpan, and alienness. The inspiration comes from Greek mythology, with Farrell as a suburban King Agamemnon, but the style is almost Kubrickian and rivetingly strange, cracking into nightmare in the climactic scene.

The supernatural element short-circuits Lanthimos’s pretensions of tragedy, and after its electrifying first hour, Killing loses it spark and narrows to a series of gruesome scenes. It’s less a film about crime and punishment than an occasion for Lanthimos to cycle through the idiosyncratic set of perversities that first grabbed our attention but has been growing staler with each picture.
