The Killing of a Sacred Deer
A teenager’s attempts to bring a brilliant surgeon into his dysfunctional family take an unexpected turn.
That it is a good word for “The Killing of a Sacred Deer.” It’s a movie that challenges viewers in such fantastic ways and feels so relax in its filmmaking.
That it’s the best part to watch. The rare movie indeed that can be this alternately terrifying, mesmerizing, strange, and heartbreaking, often in the same scene.
The Swedish director Ruben Ostlund and the Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos.There sordid, tendentious,
Coyly hectoring films borrow moods, tones, themes, rhythms, and styles from Haneke,
And they do so skillfully and good, I think, sincerely—because their films continue in a line of modern European mentalities that Haneke was early to diagnose and also foster.
