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
I thought about this movie every day for WEEKS after first watching it. Top 3 movies that got deep under my skin.
Surreal. Twisted. Fucked look at the techniques of isolation, inculcation and miseducation twisted people use to control the lives of others. It's bizarre, but beautiful. I can't help but love it.
You want weird? You got weird. Have a good time.
Cover me while I through this Grenade!
Dysfunctional and bizarre. Fantastic film!
