Every character in this film seems to be a narcissistic sociopath, except for maybe poor little Bob. The really scary part of this story is, apparently in the 21st century any idiot can become a heart surgeon.

A previous review called this a "beautifully shot slasher flick," and that's dead on. It seems to me the director, Lanthimos, has a recurring problem. He has a style, but he has no subject worthy of it, so it sort of exists for its own sake. The Lobster was almost a brilliant sort of ...Read more

1) Cardiologists don't smoke. 2) Sex with your wife as she pretends to be anesthetized is really quite strange. 3) Shoving a donut down your kids' throat is a good way to choke him to death. 4) A mother who stands by and watches him do that with nary a "STOP IT!" is impossibly strange. 5) ...Read more

They did it again. I was never more elated then in my seat. That scene with the tree is one I will remember until I am old.
