And We Gonna Let It Burn: Yorgos Lanthimos + Colin Farrell + Nicole Kidman + A24 + The Killing of a Sacred Deer = Sheer Terror

Horror seems to be the theme of the week, both in the real world and out; let’s go with the less frightening option — movies. Master of psychological terror, Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, Dogtooth) is at it again, reteaming with A24, and Colin Farrell; Nicole Kidman joins the fray as Farrell’s wife, about to become victim to a twisted teenaged mind. The last time I saw a movie this uncomfortable (besides The Lobster), it was Almodóvar’s brilliant The Skin I Live In, and The Killing of a Sacred Deer appears in a similar vein. Check it.




If I had to guess, something went very wrong during Martin’s (Barry Keoghan) father’s surgery — performed by Farrell’s Steven Murphy — and Martin

has horrific ideas for vengeance.

Meet me at the theater November 3rd, y’all. Lanthimos and his longtime writing partner Efthymis Filippou (Alps, Dogtooth, The Lobster) wrote the award-winning (Cannes) screenplay, Alicia Silverstone, Raffey Cassidy and Bill Camp co-star.
