Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos
In an effort to protect their three children from the corrupting influence of the outside world, a couple transforms their home into a gated compound of cultural deprivation and strict rules of behavior. But children cannot remain innocent forever. When the father brings home a young woman to satisfy his son's sexual urges, the family's engineered "reality" begins to crumble, with devastating consequences. Like the haunting, dystopic visions of Michael Haneke and Gaspar Noé, DOGTOOTH punctuates its compelling drama with moments of shocking violence, creating a biting social satire that is as profound as it is provocative.
Three teenagers live isolated. But children cannot remain innocent forever.
Cast: Christos Stergioglou, Michele Valley, Angeliki Papoulia, Hristos Passalis, Mary Tsoni
Do you know what Dad will do when he finds out I lick your keyboard?
This is not really a scary movie. It deals with subject matter that may be disturbing to some. I watched it because it came up on a bunch of lists of perverted films. Mild incest, some ok nudes, nothing too crazy.
Listen, I know that this movie is very intentional. I'm a fan of slow burn, I like watching all things fucked up. It was no mind bender though, the lines are easy to read between. This COULD HAVE been as brilliant as people are making it out to be, but it just wasn't. It was dry, on top of being repulsive. Two skulls for the concept, -3 for the overall execution.
disturbing. slow burn its right. fuckep up
Exploration of the dark side of human nurture. The pacing is deliberately slow, but the tenseness of not knowing when our human family unleashes its inner canine will keep you hooked to the end.
