The Lobster

Yorgos Lanthimos Irlanda, 2015

Neil Bahadur's rating of the film O Lagosta

the biggest surprise of the year for me, a truly whimsical film which seems at first obscene in it's cynicism, before parodying itself and finally bursting into some of the most sincere romanticism in contemporary cinema. few moments in movies today are more sensual than the moment of rachel weisz rubbing lotion on colin farrell's back. and some of the most clever comic staging i've seen in years
